About EcoStar

For 30 years, EcoStar has been a pioneer in the synthetic slate and shake roofing markets. EcoStar leads the composite steep-slope roofing industry with its premium synthetic slate and shake roofing tiles. EcoStar products are made to the highest of standards and are the environmentally-responsible choice for contractors, specifiers, architects and property owners. EcoStar tiles are manufactured in the USA with a material made of up to 80% upcycled post-industrial rubber and plastic.

Over the years, science and technology have enhanced our already exceptional weathering performance. Product weathering occurs in all synthetic roofing products regardless of material content (recycled or virgin). Our lot control methods ensure that our tiles weather uniformly, so that over time, EcoStar tiles lose their slight sheen and develop a patina, continuing the replication of their natural counterparts. Testing our products remains paramount to providing products that look beautiful and realistic when first installed, and even more natural with each year of exposure to mother nature. In other words, we improve with age!

EcoStar is manufactured in strict adherence to ISO 9001 Quality Management.
