No maintenance is required for a Hi-Tek RuBBur shingle installation.

Rubbur Shingles Review

A Hi-Tek RuBBur roof is over three times the cost of some asphalt products, but as a one-time roofing solution, the cost-efficiency is far higher.  RuBBur Concept shingles  are more expensive than the cedar shakes  they emulate, but far  more cost-effective.   Rubber shingles are about one-half the cost of genuine slate roofing.

Rating: 7 out of 10

Installation of rubber shingles is easily accomplished using standard roofing nails and  techniques. Roof deck should be clean and even. Rubber shingles may be installed over previous roofing.

Rating:   9

The durability of Hi-Tek RuBBur shingles is superior to asphalt products. Class A fire rating, UV resistance,  resistance to high winds, insect damage, and high resistance to impact by hail make this life-time product highly durable, tough,  and reliable.

Two colors are offered for the shingles that emulate three-tab shingles and cedar shakes. Shingles with the appearance of natural slate are also offered.  Under some conditions, rubber shingles have the characteristic odour of rubber when new.
