Synthetic Cedar Shake Roofing

When searching for a cedar shake roof alternative, Brava’s synthetic shake roofing tiles should be at the top of your list. Our polymer shingles have all of the true to life natural beauty and rustic split textures of real cedar, combined with the incredible benefits of a composite roofing material. When it comes to quality and craftsmanship, no one does it better. We manufacture the best composite shake shingles available. (Title 24 options available)

Aged Cedar

Aged Cedar is a coveted material, but takes hundreds of years to grow. Thankfully, we’ve been able to channel the rich, deep shades present in old-growth cedar and make them even more accessible.

Aspen

Aspen Shake features muted brown-gray tones, channeling the natural environment of the Aspen tree: cool, crisp, and calming.

Canyon Gray

Canyon Gray is the perfect balance of dark and light. With a gray base, and deeper brown and black tones entwined throughout, the result is a unique blend fitting for a calming coastal cottage.

Lake Forest

Lake Forest Shake was created by matching the colors of a natural cedar. It is the perfect backdrop against the lush greens of lakeside trees and the deep blue-greens of the water.

Natural Cedar

With this combination of lighter browns and charcoal, Natural Cedar speaks for itself, bringing the beauty of nature straight to your home. Note: Premium Blend and Title 24 Cool Roof Colors are available as an upcharge from Standard Color pricing. Please consult your sales representative for additional information.

Weathered

Weathered Cedar brings you the sought-after look of cedar that has begun to weather and reveal a new layer beneath, without the negatives of leaving it exposed to the elements.

New Cedar *

New Cedar Shake brings out the lighter, fresh shades of a cedar tree. It’s the same classic look you love, with a twist.

Sierra *

High above the eastern edge of California runs the breathtaking Sierra Nevada mountain range, surrounded by clusters of pines, oak trees, douglas firs, and more. Sierra Shake is inspired by the brilliant palette these trees create naturally.

White *

Pure and luminous, like freshly fallen snow under a moonlit sky, White embodies clarity, simplicity, and infinite possibilities, radiating a sense of purity and pristine beauty.

Cool Lake Forest *

Cool Lake Forest Shake, inspired by colors of a natural cedar, has reflective qualities to abide by Title 24 standards. The lush greens of lakeside trees and the deep blue-greens of the water complement the characteristics of a comforting home.

Cool Weathered *

A dark yet reflective blend of earth tones that conform to Title 24 standards. This combination of black and browns tones evokes a sense of calm and sophistication found in aged mahogany.

Arendale *

Choose your own adventure with Arendale Cedar. Inspired by the vibrant coastal city Arendal, dark charcoal and gray hues come together to create a shade that complements any color on your home.

Light Arendale *

A more muted version of our stormy Arendale Cedar, Light Arendale features more gray tones for a lighter palette.

Onyx *

Much like the stone it’s named after, Onyx Cedar Shake is a deep, luxurious shade of black.

Cedar Shake Colors:

* Note: Premium Blend, Cool Roof (Title 24), and Legacy Colors are available as an up-charge from Standard Color pricing. Please consult your sales representative for additional information.
