Just got done with an Ecostar fake slate job. It looks pretty good, but I don’t see any real advantage over real slate. With all the hoops we had to jump through to get the warranty in place, it probably cost about the same as real slate. We’ve already had to go back several times to tape down shingles that have lifted after the fact. It’s got a nice beat, but you can’t dance to it.
Tune up your saw and add a few simple jigs for an efficient, accurate, and dependable tool.
