Ply Gem’s composite roofing products were developed to represent historic slate and cedar shake roofing for residential and commercial designs. The latest addition is the Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Cedar. This new roofing option is designed from hand-selected, milled cedar shingles, which are laser-engraved into molds. Available in weathered gray, the color is designed with authentic variation that mimics the look of weathered wood.
Made using the same proprietary polymer formulation as Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Slate – with nearly 100 percent recycled resins – Engineered Cedar replicates the beauty of natural cedar roofing and yet outperforms it with a solid-core composition. Heat and high pressure create a material that is exceptionally durable, moisture-resistant, impact-resistant, insect-resistant and fire-resistant.
Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Cedar not only looks beautiful, but eases the job of the installer. Engineered Cedar can be cut and scored with a utility knife, attached with a nail gun or nailed by hand, and requires no additional framing support or special skills for installation. Though lightweight, Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Cedar is still strong enough to stand up to roofers walking on the tiles while installing. Ply Gem Roofing products can be applied to residential or commercial projects, and are backed by a 50-year limited warranty that also covers the first two years of labor.
