Featured Project: Color Match Cedar Shake - Deerfield, IL

Brava Composite Cedar Shake

For some homeowners, when it comes to the color of their roof, “new” doesn’t necessarily mean “better.” And that was exactly the case at this most recent Brava Roof Tile install in Deerfield, IL. The homeowners of this beautiful home in suburban Chicago knew it was time to replace their 20+ year old cedar shake roof and were interested in installing a long-lasting, maintenance-free, synthetic cedar shake, while still retaining the authentic look of their “silver-grey” aged cedar shakes.

Custom Color Match Composite Cedar Shake

Not finding what they wanted on the market, the homeowners and their installer, Cedar Roofing Company, contacted Brava Roof Tile and asked if Brava could manufacture a synthetic cedar shake the would replicate the color of their older wood shakes. To aid in the process, the contractor carefully removed pieces of the real cedar shake from the roof and sent them to Brava to match. The result of that request is Brava’s new “Lake Forest” blend!
