Hanging out during hot summer days just got cooler for visitors to Buckroe Beach in Hampton, Virginia. A large central shelter pavilion and three smaller structures within the city park were all updated earlier this year and now have synthetic slate shingles from DaVinci Roofscapes roofs overhead.
The bay front park features almost a mile of clean beaches where kayaks and paddleboats are available for rent. The free-use picnic structures feature grills and tables, with a children's playground and restroom facilities located nearby.
The new synthetic slate gray roof tiles on the shelters replace roofs that were worn out over time by salt air and sea spray off the Chesapeake Bay. The shelters also receive harsh exposure to high winds and relentless sun, which is why simulated slate roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes was selected.
Both Bellaforté Slate and Single-Width Slate composite slate roofing were used on the shelters. The roofing tiles resemble classic traditional slate tile found on upscale residences and commercial projects throughout the world, but requires none of the maintenance. Modeled after actual slate, the synthetic slate roof shingles are backed by a 50-year limited warranty and resist fire, impact, moisture, curling, cracking, fading, mold, algae, fungus and insects!
The easy-to-install lightweight roofing tiles are made with a non-porous material, so the beach shelter rooftops won't absorb water. And, state-of-the-art ultraviolet and color stabilizers help protect the rooftop from color fading.
