Featured Project – Chicago, IL
“Can your products be installed over a curve?”. This is a question that we get often. The answer (generally) is probably. There are many factors we consider before answering yes or no, including the grade of the curve and the product being used, but apply a little heat to the products and you can likely make them curve around whatever you want. (Click here to read my earlier blog on this topic).
Apex Exteriors, Inc out of the Chicago area recently installed a cedar shake alternative on this home in Chicago. They used Multi-Width Shake, which is one of the better products to use when you have a curved roof structure. The reason for this is the tiles are 22″ long and are cored out in back with a rib structure. The designs of the ribs allow for easier pliability if the product is warmed up a little. The home featured here used the Tahoe Blend and is Class A Fire Rated, Class 4 Impact Rated, Wind Certified to 110 mph, and comes with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.
