As a mill certified by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), Imperial Shake recognizes its environmental responsibility and commitment to the broader community. We ensure that our log supply, sourced from over-mature, fallen, or dead trees, aligns with the sustainable forest stewardship practices that are standard in our industry.
This commitment to responsible manufacturing practices underscores the well-established fact that Cedar is the most eco-friendly roofing or siding material available. It is the only renewable resource for roofing and siding, making it a truly green choice.
At Imperial Shake, we’re not just manufacturing high-quality Cedar products; we’re also contributing to sustainable practices that respect and protect our environment. Our commitment to sustainability ensures that you can choose our products with the confidence that you’re making an environmentally responsible choice.
At Imperial Shake, we pride ourselves on our efficient use of resources. An impressive 99.99% of all incoming material is either utilized in our products or consumed in the manufacturing process. The by-products of our operations are repurposed as fuel or used in the production of other eco-friendly products, minimizing waste and promoting sustainability.
Choosing Cedar as a roofing or siding material can significantly reduce heating costs, potentially by as much as 15%. Thanks to its excellent insulation properties, Cedar helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature year-round, keeping buildings cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This energy efficiency not only saves on heating and cooling costs but also contributes to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Cedar boasts the smallest carbon footprint among roofing and siding materials. Our production methods are designed to minimize energy consumption and pollution, further enhancing Cedar’s eco-friendly credentials.
In today’s environmentally conscious society, protecting our planet is a priority. By choosing Cedar products, you’re not just selecting a high-quality, durable material for your construction needs – you’re also endorsing sustainable practices that contribute to the well-being of our environment.
