CEDAR SHAKE is a beautiful and unique roofing product that if properly installed and maintained can last for 30 to 40 years. However, we are often asked about roofing products that may be considered comparable to Cedar Shake. While nothing truly duplicates Cedar Shake, here are a couple products we believe come the closest:
GERARD STONE COATED STEEL ROOFING
Since 1971, Gerard Roofing Technologies has been manufacturing Stone Coated Roofing Systems. From its Class A Fire Rating, to its 120 MPH wind warranty and its leading Class 4 Hail resistant impact warranty, Gerard’s metal roof system is one of the most durable in the industry. Some insurance providers even offer significant discounts on insurance premiums (consult your provider).
PRO’s: Durability, Warranty & Longevity
CON’s: Does not match the exact appearance of Natural Wood
While Gerard’s Canyon Shake profile does not duplicate the exact appearance of Cedar, it does come as close as one would expect from metal. To visit their Gallery and see for yourself, simply CLICK HERE

DaVinci Roofscapes is a leading provider of synthetic Shake and Slate roofing tiles. Known for the most authentic-looking Cedar Shake product on the market, DaVinci’s Shake is available in a wide variety of widths, thickness and color. It is an engineered polymer (100% pure virgin resin), which is impregnated with fire retardant and the most advanced UV and thermal stabilizers available.
PRO’s: The tiles closely match the texture of natural cedar shakes, complete with deep-grained surfacing and has a wide range of colors to choose from.
CON’s: The tiles do not weather and fade like a natural Cedar Shake roof. If you choose a color that closely resembles a new cedar shake, it will stay looking new long after a genuine Cedar Roof will have weathered and grayed. Be certain on your color selection and blend!
