Project Highlights

The Canadian High Commission House in Kingston, Jamaica recently replaced their cedar shakes with Enviroshake Aged Cedar. Sustainability was a top priority when choosing a roofing material that would outlast their previous cedar shakes.

“At the High Commission, we have been making smart and ecofriendly improvements to our building.  Our biggest so far is having the roof completely re-done with a sustainable roofing material from Enviroshake.”

Enviroshake roofing tiles are manufactured from 95% post-industrial recycled materials, which means choosing an Enviroshake roof helps prevent thousands of pounds of plastic from entering our oceans each year and reduces the demand for new oil.

Thank you, Canadian High Commission House, for choosing Enviroshake!


This month we travelled to Wantagh, New York, to visit one of our Enviroshake installations from 2013.

The Jones Beach State Park West Bathhouse was built in 1931 and has undergone several historic restoration projects including a new Silvered Cedar Enviroshake roof.

We’re pleased to report it still looks great!

Best-In-Class Product; Excellent Customer Service
Based on our research, the Enviroshake product (EnviroCool to be specific) is the best available alternative to Cedar shake. The next-to-zero maintenance and 50-year warranty (which is about double the useful life of cedar) were two significant factors in our decision to use Enviroshake.

But the best part of our experience so far has been the customer service. Brad Sawyer has been knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. Because we are installing on an historic property, we needed state approval -- Brad provided research on other Enviroshake installations that helped us obtain our approval. Internally, for us, decisions require multiple layers of diligence and approvals, and Brad navigated our process with patience and cheer. Brad also provided our contractor with tremendous support in scoping our project, determining appropriate underlayment, etc.

Despite all of the "supply chain issues" in the news, Enviroshake's production and delivery of the product (to Hawaii) beat everyone's expectations. They started production on the day they said they would, they completed production and shipped on the day they said they would, and the product reached our driveway within the two-hour window they predicted it would when it left Toronto.

We are just starting installation, but so far, it has been a smooth and predictable process -- thanks to Enviroshake's best-in-class product and Brad Sawyer's excellent customer service.
