Made from plastic to look like ½-inch-thick slate, this crack-proof synthetic version costs about half as much as the real thing, and installation is faster, saving on labor. Can replace a roof that currently has asphalt shingles without the need for any additional structural support. Shown: The European blend uses a mix of gray to dark-violet shingles for a look commonly used around the 1840s. Starting at $2.85 per square foot; DaVinci Roofscapes
