Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Cedar is made using a proprietary polymer formulation—with nearly 100 percent recycled resins—and laser-engraved into molds. It replicates the look of natural cedar roofing while offering a solid-core composition that is strong enough for roofers to walk on while installing. Engineered Cedar can be cut and scored with a utility knife, attached with a nail gun or nailed by hand, and requires no additional framing support or special skills for installation. The product is available in Weathered Gray and Warm Brown color families, which are blended in the factory for authentic variation. It is available in multiple widths to produce visually authentic installs.
