True slate look -- overlapping slates

Guest User

I noticed that for real slate tiles, each row of slates is offset halfway from the previous row. In almost all the metal versions I've seen, the grooves line up directly on top of each other instead. Is there a reason for this, and does anyone get closer to the true slate look? I've attached a picture below. Thanks! -- Amanda

The picture is of a scalloped slate...that is hard to do in metal. There are diamond shaped panels produced by Classic Metal Roofing Systems and ATAS. Some of the realistic rectangular shape slates in metal are from MetalWorks and Arrowline.
