Thumbs up enviroshake ???

Enviroshake is a new product which has all the benefits of a cedar shake shingle...so I am told.

Any news on the product +, -, supposed to be < $ real cedar shakes c/w a 50 year warranty.

Appreciate the news !

Sorry :I think of shake shingles as how big the fire can be and how hard they are to keep clean and flash around them.

I've researched them (as an architect). They may have the shape of a wood shake, but they are plastic, and the colors aren't that nice, IMHO. Also, plastic materials like that tend to fade, giving a "dried dog doo" look - you can see this in any number of synthetic slate roofs, too. They also cost as much if not more than real wood shake shingles. I like the look of real wood, but I agree they have their shortcomings. A well maintained wood roof CAN last a long time.

Remember OC's Mira Vista plastic shake. Within a few years, they discontinued.
