Enviroshake, a Roofing Alternative

Cedar looks, less the cost

Enviroshake is a composite cedar-like shake roof shingles that is a great alternative to metal (steel/aluminum) and other premium roofing products.
It’s a unique environmentally friendly composite, 95% of which is derived from reprocessed post-industrial polymers, fibers, and rubber.

Traditionally cedar was used as a roofing material because it was a readily available resource and the options for building materials were limited. The look of a cedar roof is certainly very attractive but unfortunately, if not maintained well, it will not last. In as little as 15 years, untreated cedar can rot, crack, warp and start to spoil the look of your home. This is where Enviroshake excels, with authentic cedar looks, no maintenance and a manufacturer’s limited lifetime 50 year warranty, Enviroshake works as an amazing substitute for traditional cedar shakes.

New or Old Roof Construction

Homeowners want the look of cedar but do not want the maintenance and shorter life associated with real wood. Enviroshake was engineered to exceed the expectations of discerning homeowners and quality home builders, but maintains the traditional look of real cedar.

Some advantages are:

  • Maintenance and worry free
  • Will not warp, crack or blister
  • Mold, mildew and insect resistant
  • Hail resistant
  • Easy to install with standard roofing materials
  • Less waste
  • Goes on plywood or strapping
  • Custom molded ridge caps
  • 50 Year Non-prorated Warranty
  • Suitable for both residential and commercial applications. Enviroshake offers the versatility of installing over one layer of asphalt shingles. This eliminates the labor cost to strip the roof, and reduces the container and disposal fees. Exposure to leaks during shake application is also minimized.
