Traditional cedar shakes add beauty and rustic charm to a home’s exterior. But wind, rain and fluctuating temperatures can exact a heavy toll, requiring a homeowner to replace the roof every 10 to 15 years. Thanks to Enviroshake®, however, homeowners can now get a lifetime of curb appeal from their cedar shakes, and never have to think about – or sink money into – their roof again.
Enviroshake® is a synthetic roofing product that replicates the size and appearance of a natural cedar shingle. In fact, this specially engineered product lightens to a grey colour, matching the antique look of a conventional cedar roof. But while Enviroshake® creates an aged façade, the product can absolutely stand the test of time.
Our society is progressing rapidly, at what sometimes feels like lightning speed, and it is a challenge to manage the ever-increasing demands that go with it. It’s no wonder it is such a feat to keep all the balls in the air. Yet we do it anyway—or at least we try. Finding ways to simplify our lives is important. Whole industries have sprung up to help us. Professional home organizers abound, TV shows teach us how to de-clutter and magazines are devoted solely to the topic of simplified living. Choosing low maintenance products is one way to make our lives easier and less stressful.
We need only look up to find one place at home where maintenance chores can be eliminated. Many people like the look and charm of natural products like cedar roofs. But to keep your cedar shakes in top condition, you must clean them regularly, keep them free of debris, control moss and treat them. It’s a beast of a job if you do it yourself and expensive if you hire a professional. Despite all this effort, they will need to be replaced every 10-15 years.
Hopefully, the recent knock to our economy has taught us to not only be more fiscally responsible but will also remind us that wise investments can provide both personal and global rewards. In this economy, buying a new home may not be the best investment. After real estate commissions, legal fees, land transfer taxes and moving expenses, are we really getting the value we had hoped for? Instead, many of us are opting to stay put, but we still need to maximize the look, performance and resale value of our existing home. The home improvement choices we make need to not only beautify but offer long-term durability and a return on investment through reduced maintenance costs, energy bills or insurance premiums.
As the economy has slowed, achieving the home of our dreams by buying a new house may not be the best investment right now, so many of us are choosing to stay put and renovate. Others are considering renovation to maintain the beauty and value of their existing home. We want to use products that beautify and protect our home. We’re also looking for the most environmentally sound products we can find. Do we need to sacrifice one to get the other?
