Back in 2013 the condo community of Mai Kai decided it was time to re-roof their 34 units located in Newport Beach, California. After decades of exposure to salt air and sea spray, the real cedar shake shingles had simply failed.
After an extensive search process, the board for the community selected synthetic shake tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes.
How have the composite shake tiles held up to the constant exposure to coastal area weather conditions? Like champs.
"The roof has held up very well," says Lorain Petry, president of the HOA for Mai Kai. "We had our rainiest season in years in 2016 and there were no leaks. It was a huge test and the roof came through with flying colors."
According to Petry, the aesthetic appeal of the DaVinci shake roof has been applauded by homeowners. "It's been a great addition to the homes in our community," says Petry. "Along with the visual appeal, we appreciate that there haven't been any problems with damaged tile shingles.
"DaVinci offers a low-maintenance composite roofing system that we would highly recommend. It's an excellent product that is standing the test of time and weather conditions for our area."
