An EcoStar roof was installed on This Old House’s 2016 Idea House in Emerson Green, a development in Devens, Mass. The Idea House focused on sustainable design, and EcoStar’s Majestic Slate was chosen for the durability and sustainability.
The Idea House, an updated farmhouse, will use less than a third of the energy of a typical new house of its size. This is done by utilizing efficient systems and sustainable building products. Majestic Slate was used on the home in Black Traditional 12-inch and Smoke Gray Chisel Point tiles. Majestic Slate is manufactured using up to 80 percent post-industrial materials. Millions of pounds of unnecessary waste are diverted annually from landfills or incarnation, and no slates are quarried for the manufacture of EcoStar synthetic slate.
An EcoStar roof offers a solution with little maintenance and can outlast the lifespan of many alternate roofing products. EcoStar products are made in the USA.
The Idea House in Emerson Green is to be featured on the TV show “This Old House” this fall.
