ROOFING: Is it shake? No it’s Enviroshake, an eco-friendly roofing option
It’s been available for sometime, and we wanted to bring it to your attention. Wellington Polymer Technology, Inc. offers a composite roofing product that resembles the look of an antique cedar shake roof. The product is called Enviroshake®.
The company claims Enviroshake is “predominantly” made from reclaimed materials such as post industrial plastics, recycled rubber elastomers, and cellulosic fibre materials. The composite formula is designed for durability, UV protection, wind and hail resistance combined with superior mold, mildew and insect resistant properties. Wind rating on the product is approximately 110 mph. The product does not require any maintanance and carries a 50-year limited warranty!
Enviroshake comes in one color. It starts out as a brownish grey color and “weathers” over 3-6 months to a silver-grey color that resembles cedar shake. The product does not require breathing like a cedar shake roof, so it can be applied to the same plywood that exists under your present asphalt roof for example.
