Many Home Owner Associations have longstanding covenants in place allowing only natural cedar shakes to be used in roofing projects. Although these covenants exist to protect the uniformity and aesthetic of the HOA, real cedar can be a problematic roofing choice. Enviroshake has found great success amongst HOAs. Enviroshake’s products offer the traditional look of cedar shakes and shingles that discerning homeowners and associations want, with the added benefits of being maintenance free, mold, mildew, and insect resistant, extremely durable, and backed by a fully transferable lifetime warranty. Here are 5 reasons why Enviroshake is perfect for your HOA:
1. It's durable & safe
With the highest –level 4- impact rating in accordance with UL 2218 testing, hail & golf balls are no longer a worry. All Enviroshake products are available with an unconditional Class A fire rating (ASTM E108), can withstand wind speeds up to 180 MPH (290 km/h), and are not damaged by UV or salt spray making the products ideal for coastal applications.
2. Realtors agree that having Enviroshake on your roof, will give you a 70-80% ROI upon resale
Highly distinguished and awarded realtor, Dan Cooper, states “Enviroshake roofs can add to a homes’ value upon resale. Replacing an old/failing premium roof such as cedar or slate with an Enviroshake composite roof can not only enhance the curb appeal, but enhances the resale price because it provides the same premium aesthetic, without the maintenance and performance issues, and of course re-roofing. It should also be noted that replacing a natural cedar or slate roof with asphalt not only diminishes the aesthetics of a home but decreases its value as well”.
3. It will save you money on insurance premiums and heating and cooling bills
Insurance companies like State Farm, offer discounted insurance premiums to homes with Enviroshake on their roof.
All Enviroshake products allow less heat transfer than do cedar or asphalt, which can reduce heating and cooling bills. Our tiles are rated independently by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC). Our Envirocool tiles can reduce cooling bills by up to 30%.
4. Longevity & performance
Enviroshake is completely maintenance free and comes with a lifetime warranty that is fully transferable within the first 50 years.
5. Most importantly, aesthetics!
Enviroshake is the most authentic-looking shake roofing product on the market. You get the traditional look of natural cedar shakes with the performance that can’t be beat. Our dies are designed using 3D images of cedar shakes for a truly realistic appearance.
We also offer various color options to emulate a natural cedar roof in various stages of its life. Enviroshake products are available in classic silvered cedar, aged cedar, multi tone, or custom colours. All Enviroshake products will weather, and as with cedar, there may be variations in shading and thickness of the shakes, giving the product a natural look on the roof.
FACT: 90% of homeowners looking to replace their cedar roofs who learn about Enviroshake choose Enviroshake products over natural cedar!
