National Bathroom Reading Month. Superman Week. Moonshine Day. June is filled with silly celebrations. There's Ugliest Dog Day on the 20th, Watermelon Seed Spitting Week at the end of the month, and even World Bike Naked Day on the 13th!
However, if you want to get serious about June, then you should consider June 1st marks the start of Hurricane Season 2015, June 7-12 is National Sun Safety Week and the entire month is dedicated to disaster preparedness. Those are three aspects of June that we pay special attention to at DaVinci Roofscapes ... and with good reason.
Our Class A Fire Rated polymer roofing tiles are ideal for homes and businesses that may be in drought-stricken areas prone to wildfires. The Class A Fire Rating we have achieved means that our composite roofing tiles resist fire spread, so even if a burning ember lands on a DaVinci designer roof, it will not result in the spread of the fire. Watch our simulated burn test video here.
Hurricanes also bring their own form of nasty weather. While flooding is a primary concern when a hurricane latches onto an area, high winds and blowing items can also do major damage. Again, DaVinci synthetic roofing material can handle these concerns. Rated to resist high winds (ASTM D3161), our imitation slate and composite shake roofing tiles also resist impact (Class 4 Impact Rating) --- whether from falling tree limbs or flying lawn furniture. (See Earth, Wind & Fire). View our Simulated Class 4 Impact Test Video here.
Even when the sun is shining, there's concern of ultraviolet exposure to people and homes, which is a focus of National Sun Safety Week. The good news is that DaVinci composite roofing tiles are manufactured from a proprietary engineered polymer that includes multiple virgin resins, organic fire retardant, state-of-the-art color and UV stabilizers and inorganic pigments that are safe for the environment. These UV stabilizers are what helps our polymer roof tiles resist fading --- even after decades of intense daily sun exposure.
During June, go ahead and have some fun celebrating World Juggling Day on the 13th or National Chocolate Ice Cream Day on the 7th ... but also remember to get serious about preparing your home and family for anything Mother Nature throws your way.
