WASHINGTON, Iowa — BRAVA Roof Tile, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wildhawk Investments and sustainably focused synthetic-roofing manufacturer, announces the launch of Aspire by BRAVA, a line of synthetic pavers made from recycled plastic and tires recently acquired from Azek. 

Aspire by BRAVA are high-performance pavers that can be used in both ground and roof applications. In keeping with its commitment to bring innovative and sustainable building products to market, Aspire by BRAVA pavers are made with up to 95% post-consumer recycled rubber and plastics removed from the waste stream. Additionally, Aspire by BRAVA pavers are manufactured using a process that requires 95% less energy and produces 96% less CO2 emissions than conventional concrete pavers. 

“We are excited to add to our offerings of beautiful and sustainable building products made from recycled materials,” said Adam Brantman, president, BRAVA ROOF TILE. “Because Aspire by BRAVA pavers are lightweight and easy to install, this product line is about the everyday luxury of having a space to retreat to. Not only will customers have a beautiful outdoor space, but they’ll be able to take comfort in knowing that they contributed to removing plastic from the waste stream.”

There is no product that is as easy to install, lightweight, and sustainable as Aspire by BRAVA. With multiple colors available and a natural textured finish, the possibilities are endless for creating the perfect outdoor space. The pavers are designed with a patented grid system that reduces installation time and requires less manpower than traditional pavers. At one-third the weight of comparable concrete products, Aspire by BRAVA brings exceptional performance, from the ground up to the roof.

“Expanding our product list with additional options for sustainable, durable, and beautifully authentic choices will help us not only serve existing customers, but build relationships with new customers,” said Will Hall, vice president of sales and marketing, Aspire by BRAVA.
