The typical wood shake house offers a lot of natural beauty but it also has a high risk for fires and typically only lasts between 20-25 years. If you’re looking for that classic shake look with virtually no maintenance and a lifetime (50+ years) of curb appeal, then Metal Shake Roofing is the roof for you!

Metal Shake Environmental Benefits
Made of corrosion resistant, aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish. Like all DECRA products the steel substrate used to make DECRA Roofing products contains upwards of 25% post-consumer recycled steel content, and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life.
