TREX™ for Roofs
Company name: Panelshake, Campbell, California
Panelshake manufactures durable and energy-saving roofing products out of a low-cost mix of recycled plastic and agricultural by-product natural fibers. These panelized products emulate wood shakes—tile or slate—meet the most stringent building code requirements. They compete with asphalt roofing products on aesthetics and performance; and metal, wood and tile products on price and performance.
How it changes the world
Panelshake’s roofing products will reduce our dependency on oil by utilizing locally sourced, natural gas-derived recycled plastic and renewable natural fibers to make durable, energy-saving roofing materials..
If you win?
We will be able to order a production mold and begin limited production of our products.
