The rustic appeal of wood shakes and shingles makes this roofing material popular in Colorado homes from The Front Range to the mountain communities. If you are looking to blend your home to your surrounding landscape, the cedar shakes don’t seem to be going out of style. What IS going out of style, is using real cedar shakes as opposed to the more environmentally friendly polymer based roofing system.
Polymer-based roofing solutions for Colorado homes
Cedar wood shakes became popular for their rustic, weathered charm that can perfectly match and complement many architectural styles. They have a rough, and worn look, as well as having the natural resistance to the sun, the rain, and the bugs that can cause trouble for some roofing materials. In Colorado, with every weather imaginable, it’s important to look for materials that will stand up to every season. Cedar is one of those materials.
Why don’t we just keep using real cedar? Because the practice of cutting down cedar trees to get our cedar shakes and shingles has proved to be great for our homes, not so great for nature. And nature is why a lot of us have bought a home in Colorado to begin with, so finding the perfect roofing materials is as much about protecting your home, as well as your surroundings. It’s important to find a balance between quality roofing materials and sustainable roofing.
Fortunately, here at Quality Roofing, we have found a way to give our customers the look of the roughed up, rustic, earthy cedar shakes without messing with our eco-system.

We offer our customers a sustainable option of DaVinci Roofscapes that have created a polymer based roofing system that mimics the look and durability of the cedar shake perfectly, but is designed to ensure that we are using materials that have a minimal effect on the environment.
By using polymer shingles; you are saving young cedar trees that are difficult to harvest. Not only are you saving the tree from being chopped down, but you are also saving the surrounding nature from the pollutions that come with using heavy machinery to fell trees for roofing materials.
Polymer shingles are also more lightweight, and are produced in one location before being shipped out, cutting down on fuel, transportation, and the reduction in weight will automatically cut down on our carbon emissions and energy costs.
