Empire Niagara Shake

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

Empire Niagara Shake is a natural-looking ¾” thick, 22” long, synthetic shake roofing tile produced in an even blend of 7”, 8”, 9” and 10” widths. The added length allows Empire Niagara Shake to be installed up to a 10” exposure, while maintaining a minimum of 2” headlap throughout. An additional 9” exposure option allows for the creation of unique looks including using a staggered installation. The Niagara design consumes less raw material, reduces roof load and lowers installation labor by 15%.
