Roofing and exterior?

What is the roof made from? Slate tiles? Also what is on the exterior of the house (walls)? Is it some type of nutec wooden panels then painted over in the respective 'grey colour'? Does this board deal well with weather on outside or is painted plaster or brick for a house better?

The roof is typical composition shingles, found extensively throught out the US. The walls are cementitious siding from James Hardie (US national brand). It paints easily, and it lasts a long time, longer than unmaintained stucco but not as long as brick with is pretty maintenance free. It does need to be repainted ever 5-10 years depending on your climate.
