Sustainable Roofing

Sustainable roofing products have come a long way. EcoStar is a leading manufacturer of eco-friendly roofing products, including synthetic slate and synthetic wood shakes. EcoStar’s products fit virtually any steep-slope roofing application, and provide protection against fire, hail, wind and rain.

EcoStar manufactures roofing tiles that are composed of up to 80% recycled post-industrial rubber and plastic. These post-industrial materials consist of waste that includes car bumpers and baby diaper production remnants, preventing these materials from ending up in landfills. Their recycled content creates incredible strength and flexibility, as well as provide long-lasting performance.

EcoStar products come in a variety of colors such as some pictured here, and are also available with extended warranty protection, including a 100 mph warranty and a 50-year transferable Gold Star warranty.

Because of their eco-friendly efficiency, EcoStar products can also significantly contribute toward LEED® credit requirements for your new home.
