Featured Project - Des Moines, IA

Fake slate or quarried slate? That is the dilemma for many when it comes to choosing a roofing material. So what can be the deal breaker when it comes to one luxury roof over another? For those that ultimately choose a DaVinci roof over a natural slate roof it is usually the high cost of purchasing and installing natural slate tiles, with overall maintenance of the roof in a close second.

The project featured here is actually for an addition. The original slate roof is still on (that will change this spring). It is always interesting to see our lightweight roofing systems installed next to their natural counterpart. The below is our multi-width slate product in the Vineyard Blend and was installed by Brad Van Weelden Company out of Des Moines, IA.

When To Get A Second Opinion On Your Color Choices

There is something very satisfying when you can stand outside, look up at the colors you have chosen for your lightweight roofing system or the entire exterior or your home, and say to yourself, "This looks great!"

Helping YOU make great color decisions is always my goal in sharing my expertise.  I want you to feel confident that you understand how to select colors that will be perfect for your home. That is what "FRESH Home Exterior Colors: 5 Steps To Finding The Perfect Hues for Your Home" is all about.  If you haven't grabbed your copy of the free ebook, go ahead and download it now.
FRESH Home Exterior Colors ebook by Kate Smith, CMG, CfYH

But what if you go through the simple steps, find the colors you think will work but still aren't completely sure you've got it right?  Join the club.  The majority of people that seek out my help are on the right track with their colors.  They just don't feel 100% sure that they made the right decisions.  

That isn't really surprising, is it?  When you don't have years of experience to help you get a good idea of what the color will look like before you've put it on your house, you're basically left to make your best guess.  Who wouldn't be a bit hesitant to make a commitment to color under those circumstances?  If you have a color scheme in mind but aren't sure that it is going to work, there are a few things you can do to increase your confidence.  

In the ebook I give you several techniques you can use to help you to visualize your color before making a final decision.  Just seeing the color in context on your exterior can go a long way in helping you to know it is going to look great.  If after that you are still unsure you've got the color right, ask for a second opinion.  
DaVinci Color Studio offers advice on selecting rubber slate roof or fake wood shake roofs

The color scheme for your home is a big decision and one you want to be happy with for year.  You can ask a professional to confirm your color choices are correct or engage them to work with you to pick the color scheme right from the start. Don't ever hesitate to get an objective opinion from a designer, architect or color consultant experienced in selecting exterior materials and colors.  

You will want to stay open to their advice since even if you are on the right track sometimes you may not have picked the variation of a particular color that will work best for your home.  Maybe the undertone is too warm or too cool and a slightly different color will look considerably better. You got in the ballpark, so now don't settle for hitting a single when a pro can help you hit a home run.

DaVinci Recycling Program Contributes to Green Environmental Efforts

Protecting our environment is something that everyone can get involved with through small lifestyle changes and a little thoughtful planning. Our sustainable roofing products are designed to contribute to the going green revolution in each step of the design and manufacturing process.

environmentally friendly roof tilesAll DaVinci lightweight roofing tiles are manufactured using virgin resins so sustainability is possible right from the start. After careful inspection, any tiles not meeting our stringent quality specifications are recycled into starter tiles. The advantage of using our green roofing materials is that all DaVinci tiles are 100 percent recyclable.  

Additionally, once your roofing project is complete, you may return any cuttings or scraps to our plant so they can be recycled. Considering our environmentally friendly roof tiles have a 50 year life expectancy, recycling them means a lot to keeping our tiles from ending up filling landfills with waste.

So how exactly does the recycling program work? Just collect all debris and nail free cuttings and scraps and return them to us. If you are within 500 miles of Kansas City, Kansas, returns are free. Other locations need to schedule freight for shipping back to us for recycling. For tiles that have expired or met their 50 year life expectancy, they can also be returned for recycling as well.

When you cover your rooftops with our tile, you can rest assured that you are contributing to sustainable design and energy savings efforts that will help affect global environmental change for the better.

Almost ice dam time again

Although there are many areas in the South, Southeast, and Southwest that don't have the problem, the rest of us have to worry about ice dams on our roofs. Most steep slope roofing products require a special installation technique on the eaves of the roof to prevent the consequences of ice damming. 

ice dam
As you may know leaks from ice damming are caused by snow on your roof melting from heat loss from the attic. The melted snow goes down the roof and re-freezes at the eave where there is no heat loss (no attic). As more snow melts the water runs down and ponds at the re-freeze point or “ice dam”. Steep slope roofing like DaVinci composite shake are not “waterproof”, they shed water. Therefore, if water ponds at the bottom of the roof and backs up the roof leaks. That is the reason for a peel and stick membrane on the bottom of the roof; it makes the areas where ice damming is possible, water-proof.  

There are other factors involved with ice dam issues. One of those can be inadequate insulation or ventilation in your attic. In theory, with proper insulation and ventilation, the temperature in your attic can be very close to the outside temperature. If this were the case you wouldn’t have ice damming problems because all the snow on your roof would melt at the same rate. 

DaVinci lightweight roofing materials require an ice barrier consisting of a self adhering polymer modified bitumen sheet be applied to a point at least 24" inside the exterior wall line of the building in areas where the average daily temperature in January is 25 degrees F or anyplace where ice buildup is probable.

Protect from Wind and Hail with Bellaforté Roof Tiles

Traditional asphalt shingles cover many a roof in hurricane and storm prone areas, however, Bellaforte Sabino Lightweight Roofing Systemsonce the winds start blowing and hail starts falling, many neighborhoods find shingles no longer on the rooftops but instead are littering the ground, trees and driveways, pretty much everywhere other than where they belong.

New roofing options to prevent this roof litter during storms include both our DaVinci slate and shake alternative roofing that is rated to take winds up to 110 miles per hour as well as our Bellaforté design. The Bellaforté lightweight roofing tiles install on roofs with their patented interlocking design and help to protect from heavy winds. In fact, their testing results found them rated for hurricane force winds up to 175 miles per hour. 

Our virgin resin polymer tiles provide a sustainable design that mimics the look of slate or cedar shakes so not only are they strong but beautiful as well. They also have UV inhibitors and Class A fire rating as well so they are constructed to provide durable strength for many years to come. When hail and debris hit these roofs, the tiles resist impact damage so that the material lasts longer without roof hail damage or maintenance found with other typical installed roofing products.

How to Reduce Roof Installation Cost

Natural slate is a heavy material that can be quite expensive to install for steep slope roofing or any roofing for that matter. The ability to gauge the correct amount of slate needed varies with the project because each roof is sized and shaped differently. With natural slate, additional material is required due to breakage. Natural slate also requires more labor - not only to set up the roof pattern (if you're getting a variety of colors), but also it requires more labor to roof a structure with natural slate. This results in a higher overall roofing cost because installing natural slate is labor intensive in addition to the expense of the slate itself.

Lightweight Roofing SystemsWhen you choose our slate alternative roofing tiles, you are installing a lightweight roofing material that weighs only about a third of the amount per square as natural slate. Our lightweight roofing tiles weigh on average 300 pounds per square as compared to 1,000+ pounds per square for slate. In many cases, roofs that are able to withstand the weight of an asphalt roof can also withstand a DaVinci roof so no additional reinforcement is needed to the structure of the building. With a lighter material, transportation costs are reduced as well.

Installation is easily applied with a nail gun; whereas, natural slate must be nailed by hand. Our roofing tiles offer durable flexibility with little breakage so there is hardly any waste as compared to natural slate which easily breaks due to its fragility and requires much more cutting and waste in the installation process. Cutting our tiles doesn’t require any special equipment or tools. As a matter of fact, they can even be cut with a utility knife.

Cost of Lightweight Roofing Material

Synthetic Slate Cost - Roof Installation by Springer ExteriorsThere are many things to consider when installing a new roof or replacing an old one. Besides the obvious issues of color, style and type of product, the issue of cost becomes primary in determining just what can be handled by the family or business roofing budget (or what your insurance company has allotted for you).

The cost of our lightweight roofing material is determined by many different factors. Building owners must consider the cost of the materials, permits, roofing contractor fees, equipment, tools and installation extras.  Also to be factored into pricing is the pitch of the roof, underlayment and any structural work that might be necessary to prepare the roof for installation.

Fortunately, our roofing tiles provide Class A fire rating, high rating for impact and wind as well as a 50 year roof warranty. Their quality and durability is engineered to last, and the cost to maintain them is relatively low when compared to other roofing materials.

For more information on the cost of our roofing tiles, the following posts can be helpful in understanding all that is necessary for installation projects using our roof tiles:

Sample Your Way To Color Success

Imitation Slate Lightweight roofing solutionsDetermining how a color and finish are going to look on your home is difficult if not impossible when you are only looking at a small swatch or viewing the product on a computer screen. It is always best to get actual samples whenever possible to give you an idea of the full impact of the blending of colors and patterns.

1. Arrange to get samples of paint and exterior materials.  DaVinci Roofscapes regulalry provides customers with samples of their polymer shake or slate products. If it is not possible to arrange for actual samples, visit a manufacturer showroom.

2. Sample paint by applying large swatches directly on all four sides of your home. Paint each color on the section of the house where you plan to use it. Find a location that is clearly visible and gives you a view of the body, trim and accent colors that can be viewed together. Look at each side because the direction of the light, amount of shade and other elements can make the color look slightly different on each side.

3. Look at your colors in the early part of the day because this will give you the truest idea of the color. Later in the day the more intense sun may wash the colors out and in the dimmer evening light the colors will appear toned down.
Couple looking at samples of their composite shake roof
Color needs to be viewed where you plan to apply it. For example, lightweight roofing
materials should be placed on a section of the roof that you can see from
the ground while the front door color should be placed on the front door.

4. Live with the colors for a few days, viewing them up close and at a distance during different times of day. You might discover that a color that you thought was your final selection during the morning looks entirely different in the waning afternoon light. Keep in mind colors will also vary due to weather conditions, seasons and time of day.

5. Once you are pleased with the actual samples, you are ready to move forward.

Considering the Cost of DaVinci Roofscapes

When choosing your DaVinci lightweight roofing tiles, it is important to keep several factors regarding costs in mind to stay within your roofing budget. How you manage your selections will determine what your eventual outlay for a new or replacement roof will be overall.

Roof Tile Choice
Considering the Cost of DaVinci RoofscapesBecause we have six different products to choose from, the price varies depending on the specific tile line you choose. Your roofing choices include: Single-Width Valoré or Multi-Width DaVinci tiles in simulated shake or slate, the Bellaforté slate alternative tiles or our Fancy Shake roofing tiles.

Straight or Staggered Coursing

Another factor that affect the cost of your new roof is whether you choose a straight or staggered coursing. The more materials required for laying the roof, the more that the roof will actually cost overall.

Roof Pitch

The steepness of the roof will also determine how many tiles are needed for the roofing project. The steeper the pitch of your roof, the less potential for material needed to cover the surface area. Finding the amount of roofing squares or 100 square feet of roof needing tiles will help you stay within budget and adjust allocation for materials as needed.  You can always get quotes from three roofers in your area to figure out an idea of how many squares you have on your roof.

Special Features & Labor
Labor costs are a large part of any roofing budget and will vary depending on the region. You need to make sure that you have an experienced and reliable roofing contractor working on your project. Prices for new roofing installations or replacing an existing roof can also be different because an older roof must be removed before laying the new one.  If your roof has valleys or turrets, then it will be more time consuming to roof (because of all the extra cutting) and you need to consider adding to your budget to allow for additional labor costs.

Roof tile choice, coursing, pitch and labor are just a few of the many specific items to consider when having a roof installed and determining final costs. For additional information about our tile roofs or to find a contractor near you, contact our knowledgeable professionals.

How Much Do DaVinci Roofscapes Tiles Cost?

People who are looking to replace their roof with a more environmentally friendly one or even install a roof on brand new construction will often want to know right away what our lightweight roofing systems cost.

Synthetic Slate CostOf course when constructing a new building budgeting correctly for the cost of the entire project is necessary so that proper amounts can be allocated for materials, contractors fees, permits and other accessory items. Our roofing tiles are produced to create a cost effective solution to typical roofing materials such as slate or cedar shakes.

By using sustainable engineering design, we have created tiles that take up less space per square than traditional materials and also require less cutting. By needing fewer tiles for the same amount of space and reducing the time that contractors would normally have to spend cutting the roofing product, there is a reduction in budget for material and labor cost as compared to natural wood or slate materials.

Because our simulated slate and wood shake roof tiles are energy efficient and protect buildings from fire, wind and hail damage, the cost is also reduced when looking at the overall expense to clean and maintain the roof. Our unique designs typically cost less for the overall installation and installation expense is recovered in the low maintenance and high efficiency of the tiles.

The actual synthetic slate cost of the project is determined by a number of factors, including the pitch of your roof, the type of DaVinci tiles you want, the exposure that the tiles are laid at, the underlayments used, as well as the geographical location of your home or building needing the roof. Our knowledgeable support staff is available by phone or online to assist you in learning more about how our tiles can meet your building budget. Just give us a call or email to learn more.

From the Architect's Corner - FAQ

The most frequently asked question of the week has been about color! Black, grey, brown, purple - people have been all over the board this week with their design ideas. Fortunately our lightweight roofing materials come in many color options. Below is the most asked question of the week! 

Will my color choice factor into the cost? Maybe. In order to simplify this I will break out the answer into 3 scenarios. 

1. If you are looking at our multi-width imitation slate shingles and you are trying to decide between two pre-designed color blends, those will all run at the standard price (this will be true if you are comparing blends within the same product). You can also use our color designer to design your own composite shake or slate blend. If you can create it on the designer, there are no additional charges or fees beyond the standard pricing. This includes plugging slate colors into the shake mold (or vice versa) or creating your own blends using any available color in the ratios provided on the tool.  

2. If you want to customize a blend in color ratios that are not provided with the color designer on the website contact us for information on if your order will have additional charges. 

3. If you want to customize a color, meaning you want us to create a color that is not already one of our standard 49, contact us for information on if your order will have additional charges.

Consider Brick and Roof Combinations to Complement Surroundings

When constructing a new home or office building, proper consideration must be given to the brick and roof combinations used on the exterior. Curb appeal is most important to the elegance and charm of any building. In the case of commercial construction, the exterior materials set the stage for a company’s first impression with clients. For residential use, homeowners want visiting guests to appreciate the time and effort put into constructing a home and how it positively reflects on the neighborhood and community surrounding it.

Combining the color and style of brick homes with our environmentally friendly roof tiles can be a whole adventure in classic, timeless design or more modern, contemporary appeal. Our post “How to Choose a Roof Color for a Brick Home” details various brick color selections and our complementing lightweight roofing materials that enhance both the brick itself as well as the entire home’s exterior.

For fresh ideas on selecting roof colors, take a peek at our July 13th post “Think FRESH When Selecting Roof Colors.” Our color expert, Kate Smith, helps define all the elements needed to choose just the right color combinations and materials to work with the region of the country, the building’s style and natural environment.

DaVinci Tiles Selected for Roof and Siding of Tower Banks in Indiana

DaVinci SlateIf you're in Indiana, check out the design of the new Tower Banks in the Fort Wayne area. They're using lightweight roofing materials for the roof AND the siding!

"The use of low-maintenance polymer roofing tiles, brick and composite features make our banking facilities showpieces in the community," says Julie Bobay, facilities coordinator for Tower Bank & Trust Company.

Architect Amie Lindsay, RA, with Delineation, specified DaVinci multi-width Slate Aberdeen eco-friendly roofing materials for the Fort Wayne Tower Bank locations. Featuring a combination of five colors --- dark gray, light brown, dark purple, green stone and dark stone --- the Aberdeen blend complements the overall design of the bank's exterior.

Architectural Insights
"We found the idea appealing of bringing some of the roof colors and tiles down onto the sides of the building," says Lindsay. "We also specified the synthetic roofing tile added between the windows on the bank.

"The continuous use of DaVinci roofing tiles around the top perimeter of the building allowed us to design a structure that was both beautiful and easy to maintain. We started working from the top down, with the roof specifications and continued the polymer product as a siding feature."

Lindsay believes Tower Bank truly appreciates having lightweight roofing materials that are also Class A Fire Rated on their structure. "The impressive DaVinci tiles resist insects, fungus, algae, mold, cracking, fading and curling," says Lindsay. "Add to that the product's 50-year limited warranty and you have a bank roof that is not only beautiful but long-lasting."

Understanding Fire Ratings for Roofing Materials

Fire ratings for roofs are developed by various organizations to measure the fire resistance of roofing materials. Two of these groups, the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and ASTM, create fire standards to give the general public a better understanding of what they can expect from the performance of their roofs should any type of spark, flame or fire reach their building.

DaVinci ShakeThe primary standard of these testing procedures for the UL790/ASTM E 108 standard is based on fires that are generated on a building from an external cause. Class A, B and C are all ratings that categorize a roof as resistant to fire and not expected to ignite from a spark or flame. The highest form of protection is the Class A fire rating. Class B is rated moderate and Class C fire rating is the lightest fire protection.

The most desired fire rating for any roof is Class A and is most often the required standard rating for complying with building ordinances and codes. The ASTM fire standard procedures further evaluate for burning, resistance and combustion of materials. In many cases, building codes and ordinances as well as insurance regulations require the use of Class A fire rated materials in order to pass code and actually be insurable for home and commercial insurance coverage.

Our lightweight roofing materials have received the highest Class A fire rating. Their high quality is evident in the virgin copolymer resins that form the roofing tiles as well as their high test ratings for impact, hail, freezing and wind. See our site to learn more about how our roofing tiles will protect and enhance your building’s rooftop.
