Rubber Shingles

Recycled tires are making their way to the rooftops. Shingles made from old tires look like slate or cedar shakes but are generally much lighter, carry a class A fire rating, can withstand 80 mph winds and make excellent insulators against outside weather conditions and noise.

Annually, millions of tires and asphalt shingles are thrown into our landfills. Rubber shingles are made from recycled materials that are heated and molded into strong, firm and flexible shapes. After the life of the roof, 30-50 years later, the shingles can go to the recycle center again.

The environmentally friendly rubber shingles are durable and impervious to water and plants. The rubber shingles are also hail and fire resistant. Rubber shingles are less expensive than cedar or metal roofs, but more expensive than asphalt shingles, although they require much less maintenance because of their sturdiness.


The rubber panels interlock holding down the shingles at the corners. The shingles can also be walked on during installation and will not cause any damage. You may notice a rubber smell on your new roof, exposure to elements and time will cause the odor to go away.

The warranties on rubber shingles run from 30 years to lifetime warranties. Ask your roofer or contractor if rubber shingles is a good option for you and your home.
