F-Wave™ Roofing Products Launches REVIA™ Hand-Split Shake Collection at International Roofing Expo (IRE)

February 4, 2020 GMT

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 4, 2020--

FWAVE, LLC (F-Wave™ Roofing Products) is pleased to announce the launch of its REVIA™ Hand-Split Shake Collection at the International Roofing Expo (IRE). The REVIA Hand-Split Shake Collection joins the REVIA Designer Slate Series shingles which have been on the market since 2018. F-Wave has intelligently designed this revolutionary new shingle to have the look, style and appearance of real wood shake without the maintenance and performance issues, and installed cost of natural wood products. Like all F-Wave REVIA Synthetic Roofing Shingles, the new Hand-Split Shake product installs like a standard asphalt shingle, eliminating the need for specialized labor and tools, has the durability to pass both the UL2218 and FM4473 Class 4 impact rating tests, comes with a 130-mph wind rating, and features a Class A Fire Rating. Initially available in two nature inspired colors, F-Wave is displaying and demonstrating the REVIA Hand-Split Shake Collection in booth 1601 at Roofing Expo 2020 February 4-6.

“Today’s available options for roofing contractors to offer an upgrade in style with installed performance are lacking. Most available products sold as ‘best’ or ‘better’ deliver marginal performance when it comes to durability and extreme-weather conditions. Or they are costly and can be tricky to install correctly,” said Scott G. McDonald, president & CEO of F-Wave. “We are reinventing steep-slope roofing with a unique approach that incorporates contractor and homeowner insights to create the best option and smart choice for a much better roof. Roofing contractors who sell and install our Hand-Split Shake products will truly differentiate themselves in a commodity roofing market.”

The patented technology behind the F-Wave REVIA Hand-Split Shake Collection includes a proprietary blend of engineered polymers that deliver durability and all-weather performance. They are UV-resistant and will not crack, tear or delaminate. The shingles feature a proprietary product design and colorization process that ensures the look of hand-laid wood shake shingles by eliminating the potential for unsightly repeating patterns. And all REVIA products are green and sustainable by design.

F-Wave REVIA Hand-Split Shake Shingles are superior to today’s asphalt shingles, other polymeric tiles, recycled rubber shingles, and natural wood shake shingles. Visit F-Wave at booth 1601 at Roofing Expo 2020. In addition to launching their REVIA Hand-Split Shake Collection F-Wave will also be unveiling The Future of Roofing™ with their REVIA Hybrid™ PV Thermal Roofing Tiles.
