Get the look of cedar shakes without the work
There's nothing like the look of a cedar shake roof, but no one likes the maintenance that goes with it.
There's an alternative that delivers the look of cedar shakes for roofing and siding, but eliminates the maintenance issues.
At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Ashley Smith, director of marketing and sales for EnviroShake, reviewed the company's cedar shake composite roofing and siding products that designed to authentically replicate the look of a natural weathered cedar shake and shingles.
Smith said that 95 percent of the materials in the products are reclaimed materials. The Enviroshake composite blend is a mixture of post-industrial plastic(s), recycled elastomers and cellulosic fibre materials. The proprietary formulation and manufacturing process results in products that have enhanced durability, longevity, and performance. Enviroshake products are not susceptible to mold, mildew, fungus, rot or insect infestation. They are also hail resistant and can withstand severe weather conditions and temperature fluctuations and extremes.
Smith said Enviroshake products can be installed efficiently with less waste than traditional cedar, do not require any pretreatment, and once installed are maintenance free. There are no added expenses for preservatives or coatings that are recommended with wood and other products.
