Composition Shingle Styles


My home's roof has cement tiles that look like clay tiles and are pretty heavy. The roof is framed in an open style sheathing with 1 x 4's and no felt paper below. I'd like to have the cement tiles removed from my home and wonder if there is a style of asphalt composition shingle that looks similar to tile or slate?

Can someone provide manufacturer websites so I can browse them?

Well, it might be worth it. Because, my roof leaks when there is a wind driven rain. Also, I plan to do a small addition and I've learned that the manufacturer of this tile is either out of business or no longer manufactures this tile.

I wouldn't need something that looks exactly like tile, just something that is not a stark contrast so my home won't look out of place in the neighborhood.

Thanks for your reply.

Perfect design for 10"-12" wide slate which will be lighter, and if installed with 3"-4" headlap will lay directly on ths slats and windblown rain shouldn't be an issue. Depends on pitch. Steeper is better.

If you Google "rubber slate shingles" lot of pictures and web sites come up showing the look and products avalible.
There not as easy to install as reguler shingles so I might suggest you go on the companys website that makes them. Most will have certified roofers that have been to one of there classes.
Any real roofing supply can also give you some leads. (not some box store!)
