Wood Roofing: Eco-shakes

Reviewed by:
The Old House Web
The Eco-shake looks like a wood shake, but is made of 100% recycled materials, reinforced vinyl and cellulose fiber. Approved for commercial and residential use, the environmentally friendly roofing is a maintenance-free, lightweight alternative to wood shakes. The shakes are resistant to hail, wind and fire, and are backed by a 50-year transferable warranty. They install like a wood roof.

Eco-shakes are available in three colors that mimic a weathered wood shake roof, with custom colors also available. Colors are solid throughout and resist chipping, peeling and scratching. Eco-shakes are pre-packaged in random widths of 5, 7 and 12 inches, and are 22 inches in length.

They are available through distributors nationwide, or direct from the factory.
