Eco-friendly Roofing Products

Some people feel a responsibility to the future and want to keep their carbon footprint as small as possible today. With this in mind, companies have worked hard to create eco-friendly roofing products. They routinely come with high durability and a very long life. Part of being eco-friendly is not requiring frequent replacement. Here’s a sample of what is available.

Authentic Roof

Authentic Roof was the original eco-friendly, environmentally responsible roofing material to be produced. It is made of recycled material and is, itself, completely recyclable later when being replaced. It has the look of slate and was designed with the idea of being able to replace slate in roofing. It was specifically designed and engineered to look like real slate, yet it costs and weighs much less than actual slate. It has the highest levels of protection for fire, UV rays, hail impact, and wind.

DaVinci Roofscape

DaVinci created a different eco-friendly roofing material that comes as either shingles or shakes. The company uses proprietary polymer chemistry, injection molding, and a unique coloring process to bring you authentic looking wood and slate shingles. Their shingles and shakes are thick yet lightweight. They are easily installed as well and require virtually no maintenance. The polymer used to create the shingles and shakes is fire resistant and comes with a 50 year warranty. The coloring process creates a shingle that will hold its color for many years.

DaVinci EcoBlend tiles help reflect heat due to sunlight away from your roof and home. High emissivity and reflectivity rates create larger reductions in the cooling load. This leads to increased energy efficiency. These tiles are Energy Start Qualified when using specific colors.

DaVinci Slate and Shake synthetic roof tiles contribute to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification of any building. The tiles work well with rain capture systems to help reduce potable water use. If the synthetic shingles or shakes are removed carefully they can be reused. Scraps and used tiles can be returned to the company for 100% recycling. This helps keep it out of landfills.

EcoStar

EcoStar’s goal is to provide high quality, competitively priced premium roofing products made from rubber and plastics. They offer both wood and slate synthetic tiles and shakes. EcoStar’s products are lightweight yet provide superior durability and performance, with a 50 year materials warranty, a 110 mph wind warranty, and UL class 4 hail resistance. Their tiles and shakes are manufactured using recycled rubber and plastics for high flexibility. Their roofing is available in multiple colors to match any house and does not fade. Once beyond their lifetime the products can be recycled.

Eco-Shake

Eco-Shake offers roofing materials made of 100% recycled materials. Their wood-look shingles are made of reinforced vinyl and cellulose fiber. The shingles perform well in extreme weather conditions with no fading, curling, or cracking and have a 50 year warranty with no maintenance required.

Enviroshake and Enviroshingle

This company has created a product with the appearance of natural cedar shakes, but with durability and performance far beyond plain wood. They also produce a slate-look shake. Their wood-look products are made to weather, just as natural cedar would. They will develop natural variations in shading over time. Installation is simpler because, unlike real wood,
Enviro products do not need to breathe.
