InSpire Roofing is maintenance-free and offers the highest levels of protection for homes, especially important to those attracted to the warmth of shake style. The InSpire Cedar Shake roofing system offers Class A fire protection and a limited lifetime warranty, just as with InSpire Slate. Shake style has never been so worry-free, cost-effective and elegant. There’s no need for harsh chemical treatments or constant debris removal. Rotting or termites are never an issue. All of our roofing carries Class 4 impact resistance and a 110 mph wind uplift rating. The remarkable authenticity and texture of our roofing is made possible by using molds cast from cedar and quarried slate, allowing us to capture every natural, beautiful detail. Slate comes in a variety of colors, showcasing rich vibrancy and providing a beautiful canvas for varied slate edges and surfaces. The colors include new InSpire Mixes, which deliver artistic multiple colors, each feature up to five different InSpire Standard or Premium Colors per mix. With our Cedar Shake, InSpire’s proprietary coloring process ensures the most subtle, authentic color variation for sophisticated realism.

Our Slate weighs less than a quarter of quarried slate, is extremely more robust and carries the highest levels of authenticity. Our Cedar Shake never requires homeowners to lift a finger, gives them advanced fire protection and lasts for life. When gorgeous roofing is called for, specify the name that roofing professionals already trust – InSpire’s Slate and Cedar Shake.

InSpire Shake's innovations allow you to easily embrace cedar shake style while gaining peace of mind and charm that endures for life. The elegance of shake has historically come with high maintenance cost and high risk of fire and roof decay. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, InSpire Shake combines optimum fire protection with no maintenance ever required. The InSpire Shake Roofing System carries the highest-level Class A fire rating. In comparison, wood shake roofing may not carry any fire rating at all. With our genuine cedar colors, true-to-life texture and advanced composite engineering, you can capture the look and texture of gorgeous cedar for as long as you own your home.

InSpire Shake is available in three rich colors that characterize nature's majesty. New Cedar, Cedar Brown and Weathered Grey deliver handsome warmth and classic style. Within each genuine color, two or three delicate shade variations deliver sublime, unified color and unique authenticity. By comparison, other manufacturers' synthetic shake has variations that veer further from a main color, perpetuating a mottled roof that calls authenticity into question. Enhancing a natural, handcrafted look, InSpire features a mix of 10", 7-1/2" and 5" shake widths. Each color selection is factory-collated to deliver ideal, ready-made proportions of shake width and nuanced color.

InSpire Shakes handle fierce wind-driven rain, Class 4 hail impact, sea-spray and 110 mph winds. All the attraction of shake roofing is delivered with significantly lower investments in money and time.

InSpire Slate Cool Roofing is the graceful way to live sustainably. Our cool roofing colors can potentially lower a roof's surface temperature by reflecting sunlight and reradiating heat away from the roof. This reduces the heat transferred into a structure and cuts peak cooling demand by up to 15 percent. InSpire Slate Cool Roofing provides elegant, timeless character compared to similarly priced metal cool roofs, thereby meeting every aesthetic, functional and sustainable need. Cool roofing can add one or more LEED points to the several potential LEED credits already available with InSpire Slate. By enhancing the environment, helping create sustainable projects and giving homeowners beauty that generates cost savings cool roofing is another reason why InSpire surpasses quarried slate with unprecedented appeal and value.
