A beautiful roof that saves you money – no wood shake can do that.
We enhanced our superior proprietary formulation with inorganic reflective pigments to create a highly engineered cool roof product with Enviroshake’s unmatched quality and benefits: Envirocool.
What is Cool Roofing?
Cool roofing defines a material with enhanced properties that allow it to reflect and emit the sun’s radiation back toward the sky instead of transferring the heat into your house.
The coolness of a product is measured by the Solar Reflectivity Index (SRI), which measures solar and thermal emittance. To be considered a cool roof, a product must have an SRI greater than 19. The higher the value, the cooler the roof. Enviroshake's signature roofing product Envirocool, has an SRI value of 31.
If you are looking for even greater reflectivity, choose our custom colour Bermuda White, for an impressive SRI of 80.9.
Big benefit white on white. House stays much cooler (we could say ‘cold’) all year so far. Have to keep socks on when walking on the tile floors. Our solar setup allows us to run AC 24//7 and our last 3 bills have been under $100 (2 were under $80) so that’s unheard of around here. Enviroshake white slate with Icynene insulation, two great Canadian products both help out tremendously!

Enviroshake vs Cedar labour savings
At Enviroshake, we offer premium engineered products that we believe in. Because we stand behind
our products and want to provide long-lasting peace of mind to our customers, we offer simple fully

Hip & Ridge tiles (one piece)
Custom formed hip and ridge tiles for every job from slopes 2/12 - 20/12.
Enviroshield BSA Underlayment
The underlayment is the most critical component in creating a waterproof barrier on your roofing deck.
Enviroshield is a premium synthetic peel-and-stick underlayment that offers the highest level of performance as confirmed by related tests and specifications. It has a Class A ASTM E108 rating, meets and exceeds ASTM D9170, 180 day UV resistance, and has a limited lifetime warranty.
All Enviroshake® roofing systems require the use of the Enviroshield synthetic underlayment in order to qualify for our Gold-Level Warranty.
Enviroshake proudly offers Alpine® Snow Guards as an accessory to your Enviroshake roofing system.
Snow guards should be placed on all roof surfaces to protect against snow damage to the areas below. It is especially important to install snow guards above entryways, walkways, gathering areas, landscaping, parking, ground-mounted mechanicals, lower roofs, valleys, crickets, gutters, and roof vents.
Snow guards are specifically designed to prevent entire roof loads of snow from avalanching all at once, which can cause serious damage to any structures, landscaping, vehicles, and people in the area of impact.
Enviroshake recommends the use of Stainless Steel fasteners, especially in coastal areas. Enviroshake offers Stainless steel nails coiled or loose (304 or 316), as well as loose stainless steel screws.
