    Authentic shake recycled roof & siding tile made in USA

    Brava Shake is an architectural roof & siding tile that simulates the natural appearance of real wooden shakes, but outperforms them in many ways. Unlike wooden shakes, Brava is impervious to the elements and virtually indestructible, which provides longer-lasting value and protection for your home. It requires almost no maintenance and will not support the growth of mold and mildew. And most importantly, it won't decay, crack or burn like wooden shake tiles. Instead of replacing your roof every 25 years, Brava Shake is an investment that will last as long as your home and will add excellent resale value.

    Made in the USA with 100% post industrial recycled polyethylene, Brava turns plastic destined for the landfill into a beautiful durable roofing & siding material. What sets Brava apart from other brands? Their variegated colors, i.e. two or more colors in one tile that provides a realistic appearance. This multi-coloring process runs all the way through the tile and, therefore, never wears off. Brava's blending of colors is patented and unique. No other roofing & siding tile offers this. Most competing tiles come only in solid colors and require special sorting which is more complex because it involves more judgment, and it involves more labor.

    All of Brava's products have undergone extensive testing and have received 3rd party certifications for the highest levels of wind, fire and hail resistance, and are backed by a 50-year limited warranty. Brava Shake carries a Class 4 impact rating and a Class A or C fire rating, which may significantly reduce insurance premiums in certain states. Finally, it is approved for winds of 110+ MPH in Dade County Florida with 8" exposure.

    Brava's Shake has several other advantages too: they're thicker and longer than other manufactured tiles. Brava Shake comes in 1/2" to 7/8" thicknesses with varied widths of 5", 7" and 12". This makes them physically stronger and provides a more striking visual profile. It also allows for a larger exposure of 10" compared to 6" or 7", which results in a faster installation. Brava shake tiles are 23" long, which provides an additional benefit of more protection due to a large head lap.

    Brava Shake is produced using some of today’s strongest recycled plastic; it will last longer than wooden shakes because it won't break or dent from hail, wind, rain, freeze/thaw, falling trees or contractors walking on it. Repairs are rarely needed. Ask anyone with a wooden shake roof and you'll come to understand its limitations, additional costs and potential for damage.

    Special starter tile, hip and ridge tiles and solid shake accessory tiles (for valleys) are also available. Click here for Accessory items.

    NOTE: This tile can be used as roofing and siding. See the installation manual for the roof. The tile would be put on the same way that it is installed for a roof. The main thing to make sure of when installing it is that it has a 3/8” gap between tile to allow for expansion and contraction.

    Why We Like It

    While new wooden shake roofs and siding are attractive, they often lose their appeal after a few years. Their color changes to gray; even if you stain them a different color, which is expensive, they will regularly require additional staining. They can mold and mildew, which requires extensive cleaning, and they can crack from hail or damaging winds over time. The biggest issue is that they burn, which is why they are not allowed in certain subdivisions.With Brava's Shake tile, everything changes: there is virtually no maintenance, there are a variety of color options that provide an authentic appearance. Brava Shake tiles are impervious to the elements and virtually indestructible. Walking on this roof will not damage it, nor will wind, hail, falling trees, etc. which is a nice secure feeling. You can't say that about most other roofs. We also like that it's 100% recycled and recyclable, and has a low impact on the environment. No trees need to be cut down. What more could you ask for from a roof or siding? Expensive, yes; but not overpriced. If you're building a new home or remodeling an older home, this is a worthwhile investment to seriously consider.
