Hurricane Resistance

Enviroshake Products vs. Wood Shakes and Shingles

Enviroshake products are engineered for demanding tropical climates. With unsurpassed wind uplift resistance, they are able to withstand Category 5 hurricane-strength winds up to 180 mph or 290 km/h.

Enviroshake's performance has been put to the test through the following:

  • Hurricane Irma
  • Hurricane Maria
  • Hurricane Thomas
  • Typhoon Haiyan
  • Hurricane Sandy
  • Hurricane Gonzola
  • Hurricane Katrina
  • and more!

Batu Residence, BVI, after 200 MPH winds with Hurricane Irma, 2017

Community Centre in Dominica, Post Hurricane Maria, 2017

Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 storm, hit the island of Dominica and ravaged everything in its path. Enviroshake® had been installed on a local community center by Ace-Engineering Ltd. a few years prior and survived the Category 5 winds unscathed. See photo above.

Real life examples of Enviroshake's performance during some of the most devastating storms

…Congratulations on how well the Enviroshake held up on Hamilton’s house. At my house on Tortola we experienced up to 200mph gusts - difficult to deal with that!”
- Jon Osman, Architect BVI discussing his clients whose residence withstood 200 MPH winds during Hurricane Irma

…Even though we lost a few shingles they obviously live up to their reputation as being the best product for hurricanes.
- Paul Hamilton, Batu Residence BVI, whose residence withstood 200 MPH winds during Hurricane Irma

Following the passage of hurricane Irene, it was apparent that the winds, some of which were gusting up to 120mph, had resulted in some considerable damage to numerous roofs. I am happy to say that the Enviroshake roof we installed on Bay Street was not one. The product maintained its integrity throughout the storm, both resisting the force of the wind and effective barrier against almost pressurized wind-borne rain. In no small part can the success of this property to resist the elements throughout the hurricane attributed to the consistent quality performance of the product.
- Pete Worboys, Project Manager, John F. Dunn Nassau Bahamas

Just to let you know that the jobs we did in Anguilla with Enviroshake didn’t move with hurricane Gonzalo, where wind speeds exceeded 200 km/h (124 MPH).
- Gilles Parisot, Owner-Manager, EXPERT ROOF, St-Martin FWI

When asked how his property faired during Hurricane Erica, “15 inches of rain fell in 11 hours however, but no leaks at all through the roof shakes!
- John Connon, NH International (Caribbean) Limited. Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies

The Enviroshake installation in our test pavilion surely performed very well. We didn't need to touch at all the installation after the typhoon `{`Haiyan`}`...
