When it came time to move from San Francisco to Pebble Beach, Calif., the Hines were uttering the famous real estate mantra: location, location, location.
The couple fell in love with a home that had the perfect location, but needed lots of work ... probably more work than they expected.
Even though the home was just 31 years old, it had sat abandoned for several years. As a result, it required new floors, landscaping, windows, fencing and a roof. And that's just for starters.
"The old cedar shingles were in terrible shape," says Ray Hines. "They were turned up like potato chips, falling off and rotting."
Hines headed to a roofer he trusted --- Bob Denison with Denison Roofing --- for advice.
"The owners wanted to change the look of the roof and asked for my advice," says Denison. "I explained that the best product they could select would be a Bellaforté Slate roof from DaVinci Roofscapes. I've installed this synthetic roofing product in the past with great success."
To help make their home more energy efficient, the Hines selected the Castle Gray-EcoBlend product that is ENERGY STAR® rated and has been approved by the Cool Roof Rating Council to reflect sunlight and heat away from a home. All six EcoBlend color blends offered by DaVinci also meet Title 24 requirements in California. (See DaVinci Roofscapes Introduces Four New EcoBlend Colors for Cool Roofs)
"We're glad we listened to our roofer," says Hines. "The team at Denison Roofing did a terrific job and we love the new roof. Many of our neighbors have complemented it and we'd strongly recommend this good-looking, hard-working roofing product!"
