Empire Shake

The Natural Beauty of Real Cedar with the Extreme Protection of a Synthetic

EcoStar’s Empire Shake™ and Empire Shake Plus™ roofing tiles are custom crafted using real cedar shakes as a template to create an intricate texture that truly appears natural. These synthetic shake tiles are manufactured from up to 25% post-industrial recycled materials. Unlike real wood, Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus provide superior protection from the most extreme elements such as rain, hail, snow, fire, extreme temperature change and UV sunlight. Little-to-no maintenance combined with a 50-year warranty means a trouble-free roofing solution with lasting performance.

Product Information

Natural wood shakes hold a prominent position in the roofing market with their aesthetic appeal. Unfortunately that aesthetic appeal is accompanied by significant challenges due to poor long-term performance, high maintenance, short life cycle and tendency to rot. Empire Shake™ and Empire Shake Plus™ roofing tiles provide eco-friendly and hassle-free synthetic alternatives to wood shake roofing. Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus, manufactured using up to 25% recycled materials, combine the classic architectural detail of natural wood with the modern performance, long life cycle and energy efficiency found with synthetic tiles.

Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus are available in 14 standard colors (including cool colors), unlimited custom colors, two thicknesses, and three widths. All of these elements can be used to create a truly unique home or facility.
