Cedar shakes make for a good-looking roof.

The trouble is, they have drawbacks. For example, they can burn. They also absorb water so they rot. They can also blow off as they begin to age. And they require regular maintenance and should be replaced every 15-20 years.


The aluminum Country Manor Shake (CMS) roof system, developed by Alcoa in 1974, is by far the most realistic, the best looking and the best performing roof system on the market. Aluminum Shake Roofing, Inc. (licensed since 1989) was the first to recognize the many benefits of this roof and the first to offer this beautiful roof system in Hawaii. Aluminum Shake Roofing has thousands of roof installations statewide and has, over the years, actually altered its installation methods to greatly improve the aesthetics of the CMS and its performance in Hawaii’s tough marine environment. The company even holds a U.S. Patent on the FoamGuard EPS insert.


Aluminum Shake Roofing has developed a reputation for its outstanding workmanship and customer relations and is often called upon to fabricate and install some of the more exotic “crafted” metals including copper and zinc, as well as titanium and terne coated stainless steel.

Besides being a beautiful roof, the CMS roof is the coolest, longest lasting, lightest weight roof system on the market. Plus, it is fire safe, completely walkable and has a manufacturer’s warranty, which covers the homeowner for the cost of repairs or replacement against winds (up to 120 mph), salt air or hail damage for his lifetime or 40 years.
