A step up in terms of depth and girth from the IKO Crowne Slate. This shingle has staggered width tabs to look like random slate tiles as opposed to the consistent width from Crown Slate line. It also comes in more color options and adds some weight and depth with more layered design. This shingles may last longer simply because more material is used in the manufacturing process. It looks more like real slate although no shingle can actually fool you. Sure to be on larger homes make sure you know what you are getting into first.
