Class A Fire Rating

What does a class A fire rating mean on a roofing product mean? It means that the roof covering has undergone extensive fire testing using the ASTM E 108 test standard at the Class A level. Class A is the best classification available.

For polymer roof coverings there are three tests.

1. Intermittent Flame - an assembly of tiles is subjected to an intense flame for two minutes then turned off for two minutes. This is cycled 15 times to see if there is failure in the roof deck.

2.  Spread of Flame -  flame and air current are applied for 10 consecutive minutes and then checked for failure. 

3. Burning Brand - This is my personal favorite...not that I liked starting fires as a child. In this test, a burning brand is placed on an assembly of roofing tiles with a high volume of wind behind it. The decking of the assembly is constantly monitored for 90 minutes to see if any fire burns through.  If fire burns through the roof deck anytime during the 90 minute trial, the tiles fail.  Below are pictures of DaVinci's Class A Fire rated slate and simulated shake roofing. DaVinci tiles PASS these tests with flying colors.

DaVinci Lightweight Tiles Offer Class A Fire Ratings

Are you searching for a roofing material that offers a Class A fire rating? Or did you just happen upon this blog post as you were browsing our site? Whatever the case, you are in luck because our simulated shake roofing and our imitation slate roofing offers a Class A fire rating with proper underlayment.

To help explain a Class A fire rating, I always like to share this video with interested customers. It shows what the shingles and the underlayment have to go through into order to achieve the Class A rating (which is the best fire rating a shingle can have).

 

You can imagine (after watching the video above) how a burning branch falling off of a pine tree would take much longer to burn through a roof deck with DaVinci and the proper underlayment than it would with a natural cedar shake roof.

Do you live in a fire prone area and want to learn about our Class A fire rated lightweight roofing systems? Please feel free to reach out to us Contact DaVinci Roofscapes by email or calling 1-800-DAVINCI.

Did you select DaVinci for your roof because of the Class A rating or because of our Class 4 impact ratings? Tell us about it.

From the Architect's Corner - AIA 2013

I really enjoyed working at the AIA Expo at the national convention this year. We had some great discussions with architects from all over the country (26 states recorded for literature/sample requests), and overall the show had a good vibe and our polymer slate and shake roof tiles received a warm reception. In case you didn't make it into the expo, I kept tabs of the top 5 frequently asked questions so that I could come back here and share them with you.

  1. What is the product made of? The products are made of 100% virgin polymers, UV stabilizers and thermal stabilizers using the most advanced technology.

  2. What is the fire rating? (if you have spent any time in Colorado recently, sadly this is something everybody is talking about) It is a Class A Fire Rated material. This means that all of the products have passed ASTM E 108. Click here to learn what that means and watch a video of a fire test.  

  3. What colors does it come in? We make 49 standard colors that we mix into our different color blends for slate and shake. You can choose either a standard blend, for example, Brownstone in DaVinci Slate, or you can use our colors to customize your own blend. Click here to access our color tool and find the color blend that works for you.

  4. Is it recyclable? YES! We will take back jobsite waste and repurpose it into our starter tiles. Click here to read more!

  5. Can I see installations in my area? Sure! Click here to email me and request an installation list for your city.

Below you will see the famous Big Blue Bear statue that looks into the Colorado Convention Center.

 

 

 

Happy Friday, Architects. Hope to see you in Chicago next year!

Bellaforte by DaVinci – Engineered to Withstand High Winds

Our Bellaforté tiles are some of the most advanced roofing tiles on the market. These tiles have all the appearance and beauty of natural slate or shake roofing tiles but with a higher level of durability from the proprietary-engineered polymer roofing formula. Although the tiles look complex, their installation and final appearance on the roof is not complicated at all.

See that little tab on the lower right hand side of the shingle? That tab helps to interlock to the next tile - and the "gutter" Bellaforte Slateon the left hand side of the tile is used to also interlock to the next existing tile. This snap-fit system and leading edge tab secures every tile to increase wind performance. What this means for the roof owner is that you have a greater wind resistance due to the fact that the tiles are so tightly put together.

Whether or not you live in a wind prone area, you might be interested in checking out our Bellaforté products. In addition to high wind ratings, these tiles also have a Class 4 impact rating and a Class A fire rating (with proper underlayment). These tiles come in two profiles - an imitation slate and a cedar shake alternative.

Have you installed Bellaforté tiles on your roof? We want to see it!  Please share your DaVinci roofing experience with us - be sure to include photos so we can share them on our blog!

Prepare Your Home for 2013 Hurricane Season

Are you ready for the 2013 Hurricane Season? National Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 26 to June 1st, which is a great time to get the exterior of your home ready for potentially severe weather.

According to Jill Hasling, President and Meteorologist with the Weather Research Center in Houston, at least nine to 12 named storms will form in the Atlantic this year with six of them intensifying into hurricanes. She also predicts that the coastal areas from Louisiana to Alabama and the western coast of Florida have a 70 percent chance of experiencing landfall of a tropical storm or hurricane this year, with the coast from Georgia to North Carolina being the second highest risk area.

And, as Hurricane Sandy proved in 2012, you don’t have to live directly on the coast to be impacted by hurricane conditions. Twenty-four states were affected by Hurricane Sandy, with home damage resulting from strong winds, flying debris and massive flooding.

“Now is the time to carefully evaluate your home’s exterior,” says Mark Clement, co-host of MyFixitUpLife home improvement radio show and a professional contractor. “Never assume that the roof, windows, doors or garage doors that held up well during previous storms will again be able to handle severe weather conditions.

“Repeated exposure to strong weather can take a toll on the home. Always review and evaluate the effectiveness of the entire home ‘envelope’ each year at the beginning of the hurricane season.

A home’s roof should be examined yearly to determine if there are missing shingles, curling or splitting shingles, lifting shingles or loss of granules. Both straight line winds and pressurized winds can cause different damage --- from uplifting the shingles off the roof to pushing intense wind-driven rain and flying debris onto the roof.

“Weather conditions have changed so much in recent years,” says Clement. “My recommendation is to always select an impact-resistant roof for the home. Even though we live inland in Pennsylvania, we put a DaVinci Roofscapes polymer slate roof on our home.

“This roof has achieved Class 4 ratings for impact resistance along with the Miami Dade County Acceptance (High Velocity Hurricane Winds) and the Texas Department of Insurance, showing that the roofing tiles can withstand hurricane-force winds. In addition, DaVinci slate and shake roofing tiles are rated Class A for fire retardance and have achieved the highest rating for straight line wind testing at 110 mph. The roof also has a limited 50-year warranty for added peace-of-mind.”

Polymer Shake - All the Beauty Without the Hassles!

Composite ShakeSo you have an old shake roof and you love the look of it, but it has started to fail and you need to replace it. Or wait, you love the look of shake and have always wanted a shake roof, but don't see how it can be practical these days. Not a problem. DaVinci has the answer for you. Our cedar shake alternative is a roofing tile that is made from a polymer.

Here are some of the things that you will love about our composite shake product compared to it's natural counterpart:

  • You don't have to worry about your polymer shake fading to an unrecognizable color where natural shake can fade to a number of different colors. As well, DaVinci shake products come in several different color blends so that it looks authentic and the color you buy is the color that will be on your house for years to come!

  • Fire retardance in natural shake isn't always the best. Coupled with the right underlayment, our shake products have a Class A fire rating.

  • Freeze and thaw cycles can do a number on natural shake - much like it can do to your trees. However, with DaVinci Shake, you don't run into problems with freeze and thaw cycles, as our products are impervious to freeze/thaw cycles.

  • Hail resistance in natural shake only lasts for a short amount of time before the shakes become brittle from weather cycles. DaVinci tiles offer a Class 4 Impact rating.

 

Are you interested in a DaVinci cedar shake roof?  How can we help?

Wild Fire Season Starts - What Roofing Material Is Protecting Your Roof?

If you watch the news, then no doubt you have seen the horrific images of wild fires terrorizing people's homes in California recently. Unfortunately, it seems like every year we see such images from more and more.

If you live in a wild fire prone area, then you might be interested in finding a roofing product that has a great fire rating, like a DaVinci roof.

If you like the look of shake, for example, but know that wood is probably not one of the smarter materials to put on your home because of where you live, you might be interested in our cedar shake alternative. Made to look like the natural version of wood shakes or shingles, our shake product is not made of wood at all. In fact, it is completely made out of 100% virgin polymer or a plastic.

In the video below you can see a 15-year old cedar shake roof deck tested to Class A Fire Test standards against DaVinci Roofscapes synthetic hand-split shake.

 

 

Our shake product isn't our only product that has these kinds of results - if the slate look is more your thing, then you'll love our imitation slate tiles that also have the same fire rating.

What are some of your concerns when it comes to wild fire season and your roof?  Please feel free to leave a comment below and let us know your thoughts.

Hurricane Season is Just Around the Corner

DaVinci SlateDoes hurricane season find you worrying about your roof? You don’t have to fret so much if you’re using the right types of materials and take the necessary steps to upgrade your roof’s structure. If you live in an area where high winds are an issue, these two factors should be taken into consideration whether you are roofing or retrofitting.

During a hurricane, high speed wind, hail, water and falling debris can damage your roof. Taking steps to ensure that your roof’s truss is adequately built and that (if you have a gabled roof) the appropriate cover vents and bracings are used. The local codes in each state vary where hurricane ready roofs are concerned so getting a qualified contractor to assess the structural outline of your roof can help to prevent unpleasant surprises. Check with your local contractor to get more information about the types of high speed winds and damages that are most common in your area to avoid making the same mistakes.

Many homeowners are now using imitation slate tiles or polymer shakes instead of natural tiles to get longer service life and enhanced structural performance during a hurricane. DaVinci offers composite roof materials that will resist winds of up to 110 mph. Our roofing tiles adhere to the standards of ASTM D 3161 for wind testing and classification. They are also receive Class 4 Impact Rating and Class A or C Fire Rating (with the proper underlayments).

You won’t need to worry about excess roof weight with our materials. With our lightweight roofing materials you can confidently upgrade your roof to get ready for hurricane seasons. If you are building a new home, extra foundations costs caused by a heavy roof are also dispensed with our composite tiles.

Roof Fire Ratings

Roof fire ratings are established by test methods to ensure that certain standards are formalized to protect human life and property. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard E108 is one such test method and materials are classified as a Class A, Class B or Class C Fire rating through this method. Class A is the highest, whereas Class C is the lowest. A roofing product that has Class A Fire rating meets all three requirements which are: ability to resist spreading of flames on surface, ability to resist fire penetration from the exterior to the underside of the rock deck and ability to resist recurring intermittent flame. DaVinci Roofscapes offers manufactured slate tile that has Class A or Class C Fire Rating according to ASTM E108 specifications.

Only materials that will guarantee your safety and the safety of your property and surrounding properties during a fire should be used for roofing. This will help to avoid lawsuits and frustrations from choosing the wrong type of materials. It is also important to be fully aware of specific state laws and see how they apply to different types of buildings and your roofing project.

DaVinci uses polymer roofing materials in our line of products which are: Fancy Shake, Multi-Width Shake, Multi-Width Slate, Valoré Shake and Valoré Slate. The Valoré shake and slate, Fancy Shake and Multi-Width Slate have a Class A Fire rating, whereas the Multi-Width Shake has a Class A or Class C Fire Rating depending on the underlayments used in installation of the product. All products have outstanding performance to guarantee a 50 year roof service life or beyond.

DaVinci Polymer Shake vs. Natural Shake

DaVinci Bellaforte ShakeNatural shakes are timeless materials that add a beautiful touch to any home or building. But they also have a down side. Regular maintenance, high costs and susceptibility to rot, cracking, bugs, and more (especially in wet climates) are just some of the factors that transform them into less appealing alternatives. Furthermore, with tighter environmental laws, cedar shake roofing is not always seen as an eco-friendly solution. This is where polymer shake alternatives come in.

Polymers are high performance materials with superior characteristics that outmatch natural alternatives. When made of the appropriate blend of materials, they can last for many years and require very little maintenance. Depending on the type used, polymer tiles are also eco-friendly materials that can be re-introduced into the supply and demand chain without weighing heavily on the Earth’s eco-system.

DaVinci Roofscapes is a leader in polymer roofing materials with a wide range of products to meet specific needs and project specifications. Our polymer tiles are resistant to insect attacks, impervious to freeze-thaw cycles and can easily be selected based on your favorite color preferences. Unlike natural shakes, our products when installed correctly, come with a 50-year warranty and require very little maintenance during this period.

Our materials also come with a Class A or Class C Fire Rating (depending on underlayments used) to help protect your building during a fire. As well, you will not have to treat our polymer shake with toxic substances used on many natural products to improve their fire and pest resistance.

Severe Weather Season is Starting… Is Your Roof Ready?

Severe weather can come with many unpleasant surprises.  Heavy snow, rainfall, hail, falling branches and intense winds are just some of the challenges home and commercial building owners face. The roof is the most susceptible part of a structure to these forces. Having your roof properly installed can help ensure proper functioning during inclement weather. To make sure your roof is always in good working order you must have a clear maintenance plan, inspect before and after harsh weather, and make the necessary repairs at quickly as possible. Repairs should be done by a professional roofer contractor that can guide you about the applied loads on your roof and any other factor to take into consideration.

If your roof has been badly damaged before a storm, spot repairs may not always be effective and can result in the roof needing to be completely replaced. Gutters and drains should also be carefully inspected to accurately analyze their capacity and effectiveness in removing water and ice away from the roof. You run the risk of water building up on the roof during bad weather when this is not addressed. This can lead to internal leaks, added discomfort, and costly repairs.

When selecting materials for your roof, be sure to research options that are both durable and low maintenance to help you minimize potential damage from severe weather. As well, many people opt for green roofing options. DaVinci offers a proprietary product that is green, sturdy and beautiful. The Class 4 Impact Rating and Class A Fire Rating of our products set them apart in the industry. Our products also withstand severe freeze-thaw cycles without showing signs of wear and tear. Simply put, we make products that will get your roof ready for severe weather.

Take a Tour of the DaVinci Plant! See How Our Polymer Roof Tiles are Made!

Have you ever wondered how we make our polymer slate and shake tiles? Now you can check out the process in a new video hosted by Mark Clement of MyFixitUpLife where he takes you on a tour of the DaVinci Roofscapes' plant.

To explain how we make our durable, Class A fire rated tiles, he starts the tour in our QA lab and an overview of the science behind the process. Since our products are made with virgin resins, unlike quarried stone or split wooden tiles, precise measurements are needed to assure that our tiles are engineered with a precise chemical composition that results in products that are tough, pliable, and Class A rated for fire.

He then moves on to the part of the factory where the tiles are actually made. Resin particles are blended with pigment and then heated to 500 degrees. That mixture is then sent to a molding machine where it's compressed with 300 to 1000 tons of pressure to make our Multi-Width, Valoré, and Bellaforté signature tiles.

The tiles then need to be quick-cooled after all of that heat and immense pressure and although they are still warm when they come out of the machine, they are ready to beautify and protect your home and business. However, before they are shipped, we also sort the tiles by width and color to help contractors save time and money at the job site.

Take a peek at the video below to take your own personal tour of plant with Mark!

Protect Your Property with a DaVinci Roof

A home is one of the largest investments we make, and homeownership often comes with a few trials and tribulations, including roof maintenance, repair and replacement. We depend on our home to protect us from the elements, keep us safe and warm on those cold, dark winter nights, and keep us cool on those blazing hot summer days. When a roof is in need of repair or replacement, that protection we seek can be compromised as the roof has significant exposure to fierce winds, pounding rain, destructive hail, windblown debris, and annual freeze and thaw cycles.

Roofing materials that can stand up to the roughest of the elements are what is needed to help shield your property from damage and keep you and your family safe and sound. DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roof tiles can help provide that type of protection. Our tiles are specifically engineered, with proper installation, to withstand high winds (up to 110 mph), have achieved a Class A fire rating giving them a high degree of fire resistance, and have earned a Class 4 impact rating.

An added bonus, the realistic appearance and many color blends of our tiles mean that you don't to sacrifice beauty to protect your property.

Shake Up Your Roof with Polymer Shake!

Cedar Shake AlternativeCedar roof shingles really have a way of completing the look of a home and this is why many homeowners prefer them. But they can be really difficult to maintain. With all their weathering and safety issues, often people think twice before installing these attention grabbers on their roofs.

But you don’t have to think twice if you get the same look with more durability. With DaVinci Roofscapes, you get polymer shake tiles that are as beautiful as the natural cedar shingles...without the worry.

DaVinci polymer shakes are made from virgin resin material that is highly durable and requires almost no maintenance at all. They look as if they are real cedar, and come in both machine sawn and hand split varieties.

Our tiles are light in weight and resistant to freeze-and-thaw cycles. Also, their colors are fade resistant (so you can buy the color you want - not the color you hope to get) and they are impact resistant. Plus, with the proper underlayments, they come with Class A fire rating, Class 4 UL 2218 impact rating, and wind resistance of up to 110mph.

Their deep grain surface gives the feel of natural cedar texture. With all these features, it’s almost impossible to guess that they are not natural wood. With several available profiles, low maintenance, and simple installation, our roof shingles will complete the look of your home or business without the worry down the road.

Get Weather Resistant Roofs with DaVinci Roofscapes

Simulated Shake RoofingSince 2001, DaVinci Roofscapes have topped many buildings with first-rate roofs in both the commercial and residential sectors. These roofs stand out in the market due to their weather resistant properties and durability. In fact, they have been proven to offer superior resistance to the harsh weather conditions like hail, strong storms, high winds, intense heat and humidity a roof may face over time.

DaVinci products are designed to realistically replicate the look of natural wood shakes or slate tiles and are offered in multiple profiles with a virtually unlimited color selection - you can even create your own custom blend! Our roofing products have passed rigorous tests for fire resistance (Class A rated), impact resistance (Class 4 rated), and wind resistance. An added bonus, our simulated shake and slate roofs do not retain or absorb moisture, thereby providing resistance against damage created by the repeated thaw and freeze cycles.

In fact, our roofs have performed very well in one of the harshest climates in the United States - the mountains of North Carolina that are often rainy and don't give the roofs time to dry out. This creates a haven for bugs, fungus, algae, etc. and can lead to a lot of damage on a roof. Stacy Stines of Stacy Stines Roofing shares his experience with the performance of DaVinci products in this climate in a conversation we had with him a few months ago. To read his story, click here.
