Let's face it ... real cedar shake shingles are, well, shaky at best.
They have a history of curling, warping and getting infected with nasty wood-eating insects. They split over time and can pop their nails. Worst of all, they're very susceptible to fire.
If you love the look of cedar roof shingles, but don't want to invest in a product that has a very limited lifespan with unappealing problems, consider composite shake roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes.
Created to replicate the look of cedar roofing without the maintenance hassles, simulated shake roofing from DaVinci is covered by a Limited Lifetime Materials Warranty. Our synthetic cedar shake shingles are authentic looking, fire-resistant and insect-resistant ... plus they come in a wide array of colors. (See Shake, Rattle and ... DaVinci)
A helpful chart on the DaVinci polymer roof tiles website easily allows you to compare the beauty, performance and installation labor related to natural cedar shake roofing to DaVinci shake roofing materials and to other synthetic shake shingles. You'll find that Single-Width Shake, Multi-Width Shake, Bellaforté Shake and Fancy Shake products all have envious features --- including a Class A Fire Rating, wind resistance up to 110mph and color fade resistance.
When it comes time to adding a luxury roof to your home, shake off your concerns by requesting low maintenance synthetic cedar shaking roofing from DaVinci.
