I got my first re-roofing quote for my 30 yr old cedar shake roof. This contractor quotes me #1 med cedar shakes at low $40’s and synthetic enviroshakes in the upper $40’s. (10% winter discount if I sign up before June 1 but he’ll extend it a few weeks until I decide.)
He claims the Enviroshakes weather to look like cedar and last >50 yrs with little to no maint. He also claims that new med. cedar shakes are running on the low side of medium thickness and he’s seen them last only 15 yrs. vs. the 30-50 yrs life of the old ones.
I have a list of about 10 homes he’s done with Enviroshakes and I plan to look at them first hand.
I did a search and came up with nothing. Has anyone heard of Enviroshakes? What are the pros and cons other then cost?
P.S. His crew has had a lot of experience with them so I guess that’s a positive.
