Providing the solution to the overwhelming problem of old tires clogging up landfills and dumpsites, Euroshield Roofing Products response with innovation and no-nonsense function have beautified our homes—especially from a bird’s-eye view.
The Beaumont Shake is the latest edition to the Euroshield shake lineup, which includes Harvest Shake and Ranchlands Shake. Slimmer and more lightweight than Ranchlands Shake, it is less expensive and easier to install, bridging the price gap between asphalt shingles and other premium roofing materials like cedar, slate, metal, and other plastic/composite synthetics.
“Years of research have resulted in the creation of our impressive line of extremely durable, environmentally friendly, and great looking products,” shares Director of Marketing and Sales, Brian Eberle. “In southern Alberta there is an awful lot of hail damage resulting in higher premiums and higher deductibles. This is the most hail resistant roofing option available with a transferable lifetime warranty—including two-inch hail coverage,” he adds, noting that many insurers recognize this and offer discounts to homeowners who install Euroshield rubber roofing. With all of their products composed of 95% recycled materials (and 70% recycled rubber), Euroshield’s durable composition makes them extremely resistant to the elements. “Our products are now sold throughout North America, Alaska, Hawaii, Europe, and the Caribbean,” states Eberle.
Available in three popular colours that include brown, black, and grey, the Beaumont is Euroshield’s most authentic-looking shake profile to date. Hosting a 9-inch exposure to the weather and only 40 panels per square-foot there are fewer panels needed than ever before, making fewer to handle, less weight for shipping, and costing less to install.
“There is an average of 400 tires diverted from our landfills for a single residential roof and we go through approximately 30,000 pounds of tire rubber a day in our manufacturing process,” admits Eberle. “With a number of competitors using plastics, composites, cellulosic fibres and other various ingredients, no other manufacturer uses tire rubber to the extent that we do. It is the lowest priced premium, environmentally-friendly, permanent roofing option available and offers the best overall value in roofing over the long run,” concludes Eberle.

Featuring their current show home in the highly coveted community of Jagare Ridge, their vision was to create a contemporary home unique to the area, taking full advantage of a ravine-backing lot. “Our rooftop patio hosts the best views in west Edmonton. It’s a great vantage point to enjoy the ravine and its wildlife,” notes Birkholz who designed generous outdoor areas around the home to best reflect it surroundings.
Designed for the family who likes to entertain, the open layout encourages gatherings with staggered ceiling heights supplying perspective and room definition. A five-bedroom home that showcases 7,100 developed square feet with a finished basement and a third level loft, multiple amenities for at-home pursuits include a bar, gym, and a lounge area downstairs that hosts lots of storage and access to the garage.
The open tread, white oak staircase features an aircraft cable spindle design that rises to the third level loft. Chicago brick tile clads the dual-sided fireplace, dividing the dining room from the great room where viewscale windows affords light and natural attractions.
