Spring Creek, Colorado Testimonial – Fire Damage and EuroShake™ performance.
“The roof for the historic Spring Creek Lodge renovation was one of the first sales we made. It is tucked
quite a ways up in the mountains some distance from any real town or fire department. Some rags used
for staining and oiling the interior caught fire one night when no one was
As you can see from the photos, the EuroShake seems to be holding the roof up. Despite the intense
heat and structural damage, the interlocking EuroShake maintained its structural integrity.
I first heard about the fire from a Lodge neighbor who ran up to me in a store in Gunnison very excited
about the fire and how well the roof performed. Given the remote location, the intensity of the blaze and
the fact that the buildings are surrounded by a lot of dead & dry pine trees, some of us believe that a real
disaster may have been averted due to the fact that the EuroShake actually contained the fire.
I really do think that, though the fire is a heartbreaker for the owner, this is quite a testimonial to the GEM products”
Quote from a letter received from a GEM Euroshield® installer in Colorado. USA
"...I was extremely impressed with the easily apparent thought towards excellence that went into the design of the system, from the interlocking bottom ridge and groove to the side locks, to the air pockets, right down to the drip edge and even the breathe holes. First and foremost was the visual impact of the product. I think it is the best looking roof on the market. All this and a 50 year warranty too. Truly exceptional!!"
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for the successful re-roofing of our home with the G.E.M. EuroSlate. The visual improvement to our property is significant and both Denise and I are very pleased. We look forward to years of trouble-free service from this new roof".

"...Our new roof has made a world of difference on the insulating properties it has provided...the catacomb design of the roofing material not only provides excellent rigidity but also a high degree of insulating capability. Thank you for coming to our rescue and providing us this quality roof."
"After researching the various roofing materials on the market, we recently had our cedar shake roof replaced with your EuroSlate product. We're proud of our new roof and would have no problem recommending. In fact, one day prior to completion of our job, we were approached by another couple and as the result of our disscussion with them, they also decided to go with your product and the same installer."

"Last year (2010) in late November/early December we had our home re-roofed using your product.When the snow is off the roof, on the rare day so far, we have had numerous compliments on our newroof. We have even had total strangers come knock on the door to ask what it is we have on our roof. If Ido say so myself, I also think that we have the nicest roof in the neighbourhood. Just thought I would letyou know that we are very satisfied customers so far".
“We get golf ball sized hail and it just bounces off. I am not aware of any damage. The reduction on our insurance is super nice also”.
