Euroshield® Recycled Rubber Roofing

Euroshield® is the most advanced roofing product on the market today. Made from 70% recycled crumb rubber and 95% recycled material in total, Euroshield® comes in 2 profiles, Slate-Look and Shake-Look. Our products meet or exceed the requirements of the BUILT GREEN® program. Its under-side cubicle structure enhances its insulation performance and energy conservation attributes. Scrap and trim pieces can be reclaimed and processed into new product such as starter strips. Comes with a limited lifetime warranty with the first 50 years providing non-prorated coverage. 


Profiles available include Rundle Slate and Ranchlands Shake, the original Euroshield® products. Beginning in 2011, Euroshield® introduced a value-priced thinner and lighter line of shake and slate profiles, all with the same limited lifetime warranty. These include Harvest Shake, Granville Slate, Beaumont Shake and Vermont Slate. 


In July of 2018 Euroshield® launched the world’s first warranted Hail Proof Roof…the Vermont Slate SC (solid core). It comes with a 20 year warranty against hail damage from hail of any size, followed by 30 more years of hail damage coverage for hail 2” in diameter or less. All other Euroshield products are covered by a 50 year hail damage warranty for hail 2” in diameter or less. The best hail protection you can get in a sloped roofing product.
