The Ecoshel Smart-Shingle System is a new and better way to install cedar shingles for both roofing and siding applications.
Ecoshel installs faster, performs better, lasts longer, and costs less installed than conventional shingles. As siding, Ecoshel protects the underlying structure from decay better than any other conventional siding.
Ecoshel is the first and only cedar shingle panel that uses true, full size, western red cedar shingles, and can be used for roofing as well as siding. The shingles are connected to each other, not to a backer-board. Just matching guide numbers, when starting a new course, provides a perfect installation automatically, with all joints between shingles offset at least 1.5” from the joints in the next two courses, as required by code. The system optimizes the position of joints to eliminate leaks even in extreme weather.
When properly installed, true shingles are exceptionally weatherproof because the overlapping layers provide multiple barriers to precipitation, with each layer redirecting water back to the surface.
