Valore Slate Tops UGA Special Collections Libraries Building

The new $46 million, 115,000-square foot Special Collections Libraries Building at the University of Georgia has many bells and whistles --- galleries for exhibits, customized climate control and integrated security.

What roofing material did they select to help protect this major campus focal point? DaVinci Valoré Slate polymer roofing tiles in Slate Gray.

Bone Dry Roofing installed the Class A Fire Rated synthetic roof earlier this year. According to Jennifer Foucher with the roofing company, they completed the installation almost seven weeks ahead of schedule!

"The Valore Slate was very lightweight and easy to install," says Foucher. "While the slope of the roof sections was challenging, the product made the job go quickly."

UGA Special Collections LibraryAlthough the building won't be finished until later this year, people can watch the construction progress. The 300 squares of lightweight Valoré Slate product shows prominently in the construction progress, illustrating how imitation slate shingles are being match up with a brick exterior.

"This was our first time installing DaVinci synthetic roofing tiles, but we hope it won't be our last," says Foucher. "We are about to bid on several more projects at the University of Georgia that have been specified for DaVinci products, so we're hopeful that we'll be up on the roof of UGA again soon!"
