ReThinking Home Investment Choices
Hopefully, the recent knock to our economy has taught us to not only be more fiscally responsible but will also remind us that
wise investments can provide both personal and global rewards. In this economy, buying a new home may not be the best
investment. After real estate commissions, legal fees, land transfer taxes and moving expenses, are we really getting the value we
had hoped for? Instead, many of us are opting to stay put, but we still need to maximize the look, performance and resale value
of our existing home. The home improvement choices we make need to not only beautify but offer long-term durability and a
return on investment through reduced maintenance costs , energy bills or insurance premiums.
Finding Value through Environmental Design
Roofing products have undergone a great deal of change in the last 15 years. The catalysts that led to the development of new
composite materials were a frustration over roofs that wore out before their stated lifetime, maintenance costs and the
inability of traditional products to withstand what Mother Nature dished out. Rising concern about the use of combustible
roofing materials and the ban of cedar shakes and shingles as roofing materials in some regions also hastened this change.
An Investment That Will Last A Lifetime
Enviroshake® is a composite shake that replicates the beauty of
naturally weathered, hand-sawn cedar shakes. Performance engineered
from 95% post-industrial recycled material, it is guaranteed to last a
lifetime. And the best part – its installed cost is less than that of
cedar. It is the least expensive installed premium roofing product on
the market, especially after you subtract the maintenance and repair
costs that you would otherwise incur with cedar and other roofing

If It Withstands a Hurricane , Consider How Durable It Will Be On Your
Even a category 1 hurricane can’t shake Enviroshake. After hurricane Tomas tore through the island of St Lucia, almost all roofs
were in need of repair if not complete re-roofing, except those with Enviroshake. Monetary losses related to Tomas have been
estimated at over US$572 million, mainly in St. Lucia.
