Bellaforté polymer roofing shakes are 12 inches long and come in eight different widths, allowing installers to create a staggered appearance that simulates rough-hewn wood shakes. The material resists water absorption — which eliminates freeze-thaw issues — and can be installed in all weather conditions. Self-aligning tabs ease installation time. A square of shakes (100 pieces) weighs just 190 pounds and costs about $260.
