It actually exists: a roofing option that is good for you, good for your house, good for your pocket and good for the environment! Be good to yourself and to the world and make the eco-shake roof a serious contender as you choose a new roof for your home. Eco-shake roofs, which are made from 100% recycled materials, are reinforced with a vinyl and cellulose fiber. This innovative roofing material is gaining popularity and can already been seen on roofs in almost every state in the US.
The eco-shake is designed to resemble and replace wood shake shingles. When it comes to designing and styling your eco-shake roof, you will find that the choices are somewhat limited, but at the same time, remember that this is a new roofing material and there will definitely be more colors to choose from in the future. Currently there are three standard color choices: charcoal, teak and umber. For a more personalized option, eco-shake colors can be customized. While it may cost you a bit more, color customization is a great option for those who want to make a statement with their roofs. Contact a roofer to help you customize your eco-shake roof.
