The visionary glimpse of what EcoStar is today began in the early 1970s with the development of the formulation for Starloy (Staroba Alloy). This base formula of recycled rubber and plastic is the foundation for the injection-molded roofing tiles that have become the leader in the synthetic roofing industry today.

As an environmentally conscious company, EcoStar felt that providing roofing systems made from recycled products was not enough. We needed to address the issues of Global Warming and Energy Conservation. To this end, EcoStar has developed a new formulation for roof tiles to achieve both high Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) performance and low emissivity. In the warmer climates, both homes and commercial buildings are subject to thermal gain in daylight hours. The SRI of the Empire Slate tiles helps reduce this gain by reflecting the sun’s heat energy back into space, as opposed to being absorbed by the building envelope. The low emissivity rating works in the opposite way, allowing buildings to retain their heat energy in the night time hours and reducing the Urban Heat Island effect. In short, EcoStar is offering a sustainable, durable product with recycled content that can contribute to an energy efficient building envelope.
Natural wood shakes hold a prominent position in the roofing market with their aesthetic appeal. Unfortunately that aesthetic appeal is accompanied by significant challenges due to poor long-term performance, high maintenance, short life cycle and tendency to rot. Empire Shake™ and Empire Shake Plus™ roofing tiles from EcoStar LLC provide eco-friendly, and hassle-free, synthetic alternatives to wood shake roofing. Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus combine the classic architectural detail of natural wood with the modern performance, long life cycle and energy efficiency found with synthetic tiles.
EcoStar has been the leading manufacturer of premium synthetic steep-slope roofing tiles since 1993 using innovative plastics technology to improve durability, safety, and rot resistance for the roofing industry. Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus come in a wide range of colors, two thicknesses, and three widths. All of these elements can be used to create a truly unique home or facility.
