TapcoShake – the height of innovation

TapcoShake is a maintenance-free synthetic roof shake/shingle, with none of the notorious rotting that natural cedar often regularly shows. Instead, the roof is extremely durable and fire risk is minimised with our top-level Class A fire resistance, especially noteworthy for communities prohibiting cedar roofs or requiring Class A roofing systems.

TapcoShake’s proprietary finishing delivers delicate shade variations with authenticity that is harmonious and natural to the eye. Our shakes’ sublime, unified colour is factory-collated along with the correct proportions of our 10” (254mm), 7.5” (190mm) and 5” (127mm) shake widths to give you the ideal shake roof.
