Winter started in full swing this year with the Northeast region of the U.S. already hit hard by cold, inclement weather. The concern many building owners have during these frosty times is whether their roof will hold up through the wind, rain and snow bound to hit again throughout the season. Which begs another question – is your roof weather ready?
Proper preparation for winter weather is really a must before the cold season begins. Here are a few tips to follow to make sure your roof is in tiptop shape.
For the ultimate in protection from any season’s bad weather, consider DaVinci lightweight roofing tiles. Not only do we offer a 50 year roof warranty, but our synthetic roofing material sheds water to help prevent leaks from snow and ice while also maintaining a high rating for both wind and impact resistance.
Preserving history by renovating historic structures means more than just adding a new coat of paint or planting new flowers in front of the building. Restoring older homes, museums and government buildings links us to past generations and enables us to look forward to a future deeply aware of our connection to our historical origins.
Typically, historically significant structures need extensive work to restore framing, foundation and roofing. When it comes to restoring roofs on 100 year old or more buildings, DaVinci lightweight roofing solutions is on the cutting edge of providing not only a 50 year roof to last for many more years to come but also offers sustainable roofing that protects these buildings with the highest rating of fire, wind and impact available on the market today.
To see why our faux slate roofing is such a favorite for many historic restoration projects, find links below to our past posts detailing how our roofing materials beautifully top older homes, museums and schools throughout the country.
