DECRA shakes have deep roots in history as well. They were invented in 1957, but the idea upon which DECRA shakes are based and created is even older. During the Second World War, the British were forced to utilize corrugated metal in construction when they were quickly reconstructing buildings that were damaged or destroyed by the German Luftwaffe. Using corrugated metal in construction was not that strange, but they needed a new way to conceal all that shiny metal. They decided that the best way to cover shiny exposed metal is by coating it in tar and then sprinkle it with stone chips or to use a coating made out of coal emulsion. Coal emulsion coating was designed in such a way that it was resistant to chemical fumes and acid. It was also highly resistant to water vapor. DECRA came to California some 30 to 40 years ago and since then, it was one of the best roofing materials available for residential properties. Homeowners like them because they have so many useful features; they offer high level of protection, they are durable, robust and sturdy, they are available in various colors and patterns, they can be installed directly over old slate roofing material, they can be used to encapsulate dangerous asbestos which means that you won’t have to risk your health and spend large amounts of money on removal.
