An EcoStar roof was installed on This Old House’s 2016 Idea House in Emerson Green, an innovative development in Devens, Massachusetts. The Idea House focused on sustainable design, and EcoStar’s Majestic Slate was chosen for its durability and sustainability.
The Idea House, an updated farmhouse, will use less than a third of the energy of a typical new house of its size. This is done by utilizing efficient systems and sustainable building products. Majestic Slate was used on the home in Smoke Gray Traditional 12” and Black Chisel Point tiles. Majestic Slate is manufactured using up to 80% post-industrial materials. Millions of pounds of unnecessary waste are diverted annually from landfills or incarnation, and no slates are quarried for the manufacture of EcoStar synthetic slate.
The Idea House in Emerson Green is to be featured on the TV show “This Old House” this fall.
An EcoStar roof offers a long-term solution with little-to-no maintenance and can outlast the lifespan of many alternate roofing products by as much as five times. EcoStar products are proudly made in the USA.
