EuroLite Shake is a thinner and lighter version of our popular EuroShake®. It is suitable for both re-roof and new construction applications and at a price point between asphalt shingles and premium roofing products such as cedar, slate, metal roofing and other synthetics, it offers tremendous value. It’s light in weight but not in performance.

EuroLite Slate® is a thinner, lighter and lower cost version of our popular EuroSlate®. It is designed to replicate New England style slate with a 1/2? (nominal) thick chiselled-look butt edge. It is suitable for both reroof and new construction applications and at a price point between asphalt shingles and premium roofing products such as cedar, slate, metal and other synthetics. It is a great choice for those value-conscious individuals wanting a quality slate-look roof without the high weight and cost. It’s light in weight but not in performance.

EuroSlate® is designed to accurately replicate the style and beauty of extra thick chiselled-edge slate. This roof will bring a high level of class and elegance to your home at a price that is sure to please you. EuroSlate® weighs about the same as typical 40-year laminated asphalt shingle roof so structural concerns related to the installation of traditional heavy slate roofing are not an issue with EuroSlate®. Unlike real slate, there is no risk of damage when walking on your EuroSlate® roof as it will not crack.

EuroShake® Hand-Split is the perfect solution for those who want the classic look of a wood roof, but not the problems associated with wood such as rotting, curling, cracking, mould, discoloration and added weight associated with moisture absorption. There are two different profiles for you to choose from…Heritage (Hand-Split®) or Contemporary (Taper-Sawn®).

Our “Heritage” Shake profile accurately replicates the look of a Hand-Split shake, with its wavy and rougher surface texture.

Our “Contemporary” Shake profile accurately replicates the look of a Taper-Sawn® shake, with its straight-cut shallow ridges and subtle texture.
