BREAKING NEWS: DaVinci Roofscapes Introduces 50th Color!

Make sure your 2015 plans include introducing yourself to DaVinci Roofscapes' 50th color --- Smokey Gray.

Already the leader in color options in the polymer roofing industry, DaVinci enhances its position by introducing the company's newest color, Smokey Gray.

"This deep, rich blackish gray is reminiscent of real slate," says Ray Rosewall, CEO and president of DaVinci Roofscapes. "The color reminds some people of a dark, stormy night or of charcoal. The distinct Smokey Gray color will be available as a standard color option in the DaVinci Multi-Width and Single-Width Slate product lines, along with the Bellaforté Slate line."

Smokey Gray will be the 50th color offered by DaVinci in their luxury roof offerings, and the darkest gray available from the company. Slate Gray, Medium Gray, Light Gray, Light Weathered Gray, Medium Weathered Gray, Medium Light Weathered Gray, Medium Dark Weathered Gray and Dark Weathered Gray are also available from DaVinci.

"Subtle tone differences are so important in roof color offerings," says Rosewall. "While we have an industry-leading reputation for color at DaVinci, we will continue to respond to marketplace requests for new colors. This demand is what brought us to the launch of the dark gray pavement tone of Smokey Gray."

Simulated Slate Roofing Beats Real Slate

Have a sledge hammer handy? How about a baseball bat? What about a mallet?

If you have any of these items nearby, we invite you to put on your safety goggles and take your best shot at hitting a piece of real slate tile roof. Even if you don't have much power behind your swing, you'll easily be able to demolish the piece of slate into a million little pieces.

 

 

Next, try the same thing with DaVinci Roofscapes imitation slate tiles. Whoa! Did you see that hammer or bat almost bounce off the composite slate without even denting it? That's because luxury roofs made from synthetic slate roof shingles are impact-resistant. They're so durable they've received the Class 4 impact rating under the UL 2218 standard and have a limited lifetime warranty.

Now, imagine what pounding hail could do to real slate roofs as opposed to composite slate roofing. (And, see Hailing Your Roof)

We think you get the point. But, just in case you need to see for yourself, visit our DaVinci YouTube site to see our testing video ... and see how manufactured slate tile outperforms natural slate (and many other roofing products!) every time!

DaVinci Roofscapes to Launch New Profile at 2015 International Builders' Show

When the doors open at the 2015 International Builders' Show on January 20, 2015 in Las Vegas, show attendees will have their first chance to view a new simulated slate roofing profile being launched by DaVinci Roofscapes at booth #C2136.

Slate Roof"We've taken our terrific-looking Single-Width Slate 12-inch tiles and made them even better with a more authentic quarried look," says Ray Rosewall, CEO and president of DaVinci Roofscapes. "A significant amount of time and energy has been invested in design improvements to make this slate tile have a thicker, more realistic profile that accurately replicates genuine slate.

"The edges of these composite slate tiles now have a more quarried look to them. Deeper impressions in the tiles make them appear thicker, even though they're the same weight as previous tiles in this product offering. This is just one example of how we're continually refining our products and making improvements that enhance the overall aesthetical appeal of DaVinci polymer roofing products."

The refinement affects all eight different composite slate 12-inch tiles found in DaVinci's blended bundles, including all color and blend options for Single-Width Slate. Make your plans now to see the full array of DaVinci composite roofing products at the International Builders' Show!

I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore!

Remember the movie "Network"  back in 2000? A longtime television anchor creates a nationwide outcry during an evening news broadcast by encouraging viewers to shout out "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore."

That classic movie moment has led to January 7 being named national "I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore Day."

At DaVinci Roofscapes, we invite you to celebrate this day by taking a long, hard look at your roof. If slate shingles are cracked, there are upturned cedar roof shingles or if water is leaking into your home, decide on January 7 that you're not going to take it anymore!

Then, take the next step and go to the DaVinci website to explore all the simulated slate roofing and composite shake products available to make your life --- and the life of your home --- better.

 

Need inspiration? Then see what other homeowners are saying:

"I was tired of our older wood shakes deteriorating with different weather conditions. Plus, mold would accumulate on the wood shakes and the shakes were fading. Overall, dealing with this roof was a huge headache. I wanted something that looked like real wood shakes but performed better.After doing research on DaVinci Roofscapes and discussing the product with our contractor, we decided our best option was the Bellaforté Shake product that resists impact, wind, algae and mold. I'd definitely recommend the roof to family and friends, and I believe the Bellaforté Shake product is a sensible long-term investment for our home."

                                                Thomas Meyers of Prior Lake, Minnesota

"More than fifty homes burned in our area during the one wildfire. If the winds had been stronger, our home would have been included. Our old shake roof was a tinderbox waiting to ignite. Our new Bellaforté polymer tiles are rated Class A for fire retardance, which gives us tremendous peace-of-mind."

                                                Dan Baer of Yorba Linda, California

Available starting January 1st, the new Single-Width Slate 12-inch tile boasts a more authentic quarried look. This new slate alternative tile has a thicker, more realistic profile that accurately replicates genuine slate in an imitation slate tile.

When you get your first look at our Smokey Gray color, you'll see that this deep, rich blackish gray is reminiscent of real slate shingles. The color reminds some people of a dark, stormy night or of charcoal.

In case you're counting, Smokey Gray will be the 50th color offered by DaVinci, and the darkest gray available from us.

California Dreaming ... with DaVinci Roofscapes

Early season, fast snowfalls have kick-started winter in areas all across the country. Instead of wallowing in the cold, DaVinci Roofscapes invites you to relax and reflect on this sunny California project next to the Pacific Ocean.

In Carlsbad, California, there are 48-rooms at the seaside Beach Terrace Inn hotel. And, while guests may initially be drawn to the oceanfront views, it doesn't take long for their gaze to wander to the fully-renovated hotel itself. That's when they're likely to notice the structure's unique design and low-pitch roof that boasts colorful polymer roofing from DaVinci.

The hotel's management team selected the Aberdeen blend of  Dark Gray, Light Brown, Dark Purple, Green Stone and Dark Stone for its luxury roof. The eco friendly roof was the perfect choice for the oceanfront hotel, since it resists both the salt air and harsh rays of the sun. The Class A Fire Rating on the compositing roofing also means the owners have an added sense of security when their guests go to sleep at night.

The hacienda-style hotel needed a dependable designer roof, and they fulfilled their needs with the composite slate roof from DaVinci. The fake slate roof stands up to tough coastal conditions, plus high winds, impact and potential fire with virtually no periodic maintenance.

Patchwork Problems Not a Worry with DaVinci Imitation Slate Roofs

We've all seen them. Patched-up roofs that resemble grandma's old quilt more than they do an attractive luxury roof.

When roofing problems happen with some types of roofs --- like broken or cracked slate roof tiles, insect-infested cedar roof shingles or curling asphalt shingles --- there's no choice other than to patch up the problem and grimace.

We want you to know that roofs don't have to resemble an old patchwork quilt. When selecting DaVinci Roofscapes simulated slate roofing you get a 50 year roof you can depend on. No more worries about algae or mold growing on slate, or shattered slate pieces from a falling branch that have to be replaced. Impact- and fire-resistant imitation slate shingles are lightweight and durable, able to resist high winds and severe weather conditions.

Best of all, the color is blended throughout each slate alternative roof tile in the manufacturing process, so you can depend on consistency of color for decades to come. If you're considering slate roof alternatives, we invite you to consider these three outstanding synthetic slate roofing options from DaVinci:

 

 

> DaVinci Multi-Width Slate: Available in 12", 10", 9", 7" and 6" widths making it easy to create a natural, non-repeat appearance in either a straight or staggered pattern. Authentic-looking slate roof shingles can be ordered in a variety of colors or blends.

>DaVinci Single-Width Slate: Crafted using only virgin resins to guarantee a stainable roofing product, single-width tiles are available in 12" widths. This composite slate roof brings you a clean, simple design with the authentic look of natural slate.

> Bellaforté Slate: Designed with snap-fit features for each imitation slate tile that creates a built-in rain gutter, Bellaforté simulated slate roofing tiles feature a leading edge tab that secures the lightweight tiles to drastically improve wind performance. Available in a 12" tile width in a variety of colors and blends.

Santa's Reindeer Add DaVinci Polymer Roofing to their Wish Lists

Why should children get the best gifts during the holidays? This year, Santa's reindeer have started their own "wish list" that includes peppermint-flavored lichen, full-body insulated sweaters and impact-resistant polymer roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes.
 
"It's hard on our hoofs to land on millions of slate roofs in a single night," says Blitzen, spokes-deer for Santa's nine reindeer. "We have the weight of Santa's sled filled with toys, to say nothing of Santa's ever-increasing waistline, to pull through the sky. When we land, the reindeer are looking for durable composite roofing that can really support our weight and be easy on our hoofs!"

At DaVinci, creating impact-resistant composite slate and simulated shake roofing tiles that can withstand strong winds, severe weather and reindeer-landings is a daily occurrence. The earth-bound elves at the Kansas-based company focus on being good all year long and creating reliable sustainable roofing products 365 days a year.
 
"Last year Rudolph made a mistake and brought the sleigh down too quickly on a shake tile roof that he thought had DaVinci shake shingles," says Blitzen. "It was ugly. With the weight of the sleigh and Santa aboard, our hooves went right through those darned cedar roof shingles and we had our legs dangling through a living room ceiling. Rudolph won't make that mistake again!"
 
While Blitzen and the team can't depend on rooftop lights to guide their way and identify DaVinci simulated slate roofing and composite shake roofs, the spokes-deer says they have worked out an alternate identification roof method.
 
"We always know when there's a DaVinci 50 year roof below us because their colors shine through in the sky," says Blitzen. "From New York to California, we've seen these colorful roofs on homes all across America and we look for them to guide our way. I can't say it officially on the record, but the European blend of five gray and purple shades is our personal favorite."
 
With the introduction of the new Smokey Gray color in January of 2015, DaVinci will offer 50 different colors for their realistic slate and shake alternative roofing tiles. The company's polymer roof tiles are Class 4 impact rated, making it possible for them to handle severe weather conditions and unscheduled sleigh landings. The roofing tiles have passed the highest rating wind tests, so even if weather conditions are blustery on December 24th, Santa and his reindeer will have no difficulties landing on the secure DaVinci luxury roofs.

It's not just the reindeer who love synthetic slate roof shingles from DaVinci ... Reindeer-Resistant Synthetic Roofing High on Santa's Wish List!

From the Architect's Corner: Online Continuing Education

Have you ever wondered what a color expert would tell you if you asked the question, "What order should I go in when selecting exterior colors for my home?"

According to Kate Smith, DaVinci Roofscapes' color expert, the correct order is roof, siding, windows, front door, trim then garage door. Unless the home is brick or stone, the largest fixed feature is probably the roof, so you will want to start there.

Interested in learning more? Are you a professional in need of a continuing education credit? Jump over to AEC Daily's website to take our new course, The FRESH Approach to Choosing Exterior Colors. It is free and available online 24/7.

High Praise for Bellaforté Roof

It happened again. The last time it was during a garage sale. This time it was when my minister came to visit and I was trying to show off my new landscaping.

What happened? Instead of looking at my gorgeous red maple and blooming fuchsia baskets, my minister turned to me and said, "Is that slate on your roof?"

Since that was the exact same reaction I received a few months ago from people who took notice of my roof instead of the priceless junk I was selling, I had to laugh. No matter who comes to my home, my Bellaforté roof seems to steal the show.

I don't own a McMansion ... in fact, far from it. My small ranch-style home has less than 1,500 square feet with vinyl siding and sits on a nice lot. But, what really sets my house apart these days is the DaVinci polymer roofing overhead. My synthetic slate roofing captures the attention of first-time visitors and even garage sale shoppers!

The truth is, I don't blame people for noticing my plastic slate roof. In fact, each time it happens I silently pat myself on the back for making a smart purchasing decision.

After a freak hail storm demolished my asphalt shingle roof, I turned to DaVinci for a 50 year roof. I didn't want to ever worry about replacing my roof again. What I didn't know when I made the decision to purchase simulated slate roofing was that my roof would be the talk of the neighborhood. Now apparently it's also the talk of my church. I just may have to have a "roof blessing" party in the near future!

DaVinci Slate Roof Solves Homeowner Problem

Problem: Philadelphia area homeowner John Mastronardo needed to replace the original slate roof on a 1920s English Tudor style home he purchased plus the home's garage, pool cabana and patio areas. The poor condition of the 80-year old slate, plus missing tiles made the roof replacement a top priority.

Solution: Cost-effective and long-lasting DaVinci Roofscapes Multi-Width polymer roofing tiles in a Castle Gray blend of light, medium and dark gray tiles.

Reasoning:  “We wanted to preserve the look and feel of the original roof along with the overall character of the home," says Mastronardo. "But, as with most people, I had a budget. The cost of a synthetic slate roof from DaVinci was much more affordable than using real slate.

 

 

“The more I learned about the synthetic DaVinci roofing tiles, the more I liked them. The product perfectly complements the stone, brick and stucco features of our home. As an added benefit, the product comes with a 50-year warranty. Even if the costs were equal, I’d still choose this DaVinci product because of all the inherent benefits of synthetic roofing tiles.

“From the street, you simply cannot tell that these are not real slate tiles. My neighbors stop me all the time to ask about the roof. They’re surprised to discover it’s a synthetic product. You can see the wheels turning in their minds. There are so many of my neighbors who have old slate roofs that need replacing. I’m quite certain we’ll see a growing number of these roofs in this neighborhood in the coming years.”

Profile: Turner Morris Roof Systems

Ask Scott Cunningham with Turner Morris, Inc. how he feels about DaVinci Roofscapes and get ready to be captivated.

"DaVinci is a true stand alone (roofing material) in the synthetic world," says Cunningham, mountain project manager with Turner Morris Roof Systems in Colorado. "The product itself is durable and withstands the stringent demands of our high alpine environment. This is the only product we've found that works well in our climatic region."

Cunningham should know. In the past eight years his company has installed more than a dozen commercial roofing projects in Colorado using DaVinci synthetic roofing material.

"The impressive thing is that DaVinci stands behind its product," says Cunningham, a member of the DaVinci Masterpiece Contractors program. "I have been installing DaVinci imitation slate and composite shake for eight years and have never had any significant product issues. The problems that I have seen throughout the years have been specifically contractor installation defects, and unforeseen issues with snow and ice migration due to Mother Nature.

"I always recommend that extra caution should be taken when switching traditional cedar shakes to synthetic shake roofing as their insulation value and breathability is very much different."

A major project recently completed by Turner Morris is the reroofing of 30 condo units with simulated shake roofing from DaVinci. "These roofs are impact- and fire-resistant with the natural look of real cedar with great shadow lines, but with all the advantages of a man-made product," says Cunningham. "Best of all, they have a 50-year limited warranty, so this is a great investment for the community."

More Realistic DaVinci Single-Width Slate Profile!

What's got us excited at DaVinci Roofscapes as we wind up 2014 and head into 2015? The new profile we've created for our DaVinci Single-Width Slate 12-inch tiles!

slate roofThis new Single-Width Slate profile has a more authentic quarried look, so it more accurately resembles natural slate roof tiles. We've spent the past year designing improvements to this slate alternative tile so that it now carries a sharper, more realistic profile. This includes edges that now have a more quarried look to them and deeper impressions in the imitation slate tiles to make them appear thicker.

We based this composite slate enhancement on customer feedback to our original Single-Width Slate tiles. And, here's some great news: while the new simulated slate roofing tiles look heavier, they're the same weight as our previous synthetic slate roof tiles, and installation procedures remain the same!

This improvement affects all eight different slate 12-inch tiles found in our blended bundles --- and all our color and blend options for Single-Width Slate. We encourage you to contact us for a sample of this new composite slate profile. When you see and feel these pieces we believe you'll be impressed with the endless options they present for your roofing projects!

Giving Thanks ... for DaVinci Roofs

Every Thanksgiving people reflect on what they're grateful for ... and many times, that's a reliable, worry-free roof over their heads.

We are fortunate at DaVinci Roofscapes that we hear from homeowners throughout the entire year about how they appreciate our composite roofing products. We'd like to share some of those grateful comments with you.

“More than fifty homes burned in our area during one wildfire. If the winds had been stronger, our home would have been included. Our old shake roof was a tinderbox waiting to ignite. Our new Bellaforté polymer tiles are rated Class A for fire retardance, which gives us tremendous peace-of-mind.”
            Dan Baer - California

We looked into many options when deciding to replace the asphalt shingle roof on our home. Our research brought us to the DaVinci Roofscapes web site. The Bellaforté roof that’s now on our house is absolutely beautiful --- it’s the icing on the cake for our 3,800-square foot ranch-style home.”                                                        
            Kathy Bradshaw - Oklahoma

 “Watching the polymer roof go up overhead was a very moving experience. It completes the home so perfectly and complements the overall design that the Homes for Our Troops people have developed for my house. The peace-of-mind that will come from having a home designed to accommodate my physical limitations is amazing.”

            Cpl. Joshua Lindsay - Georgia

"There simply is not another product out there that provides the durability, hail resistance and appearance that can touch the DaVinci roofing product.”

DaVinci Multi-Width Slate: When seeking a realistic slate look on your luxury roof, multi-width composite slate roof tiles are a terrific choice. Available in 12", 10", 9", 7" and 6" widths making it easy to create a natural, non-repeat appearance in either a straight or staggered pattern. Authentic-looking slate roof shingles can be ordered in a variety of colors or blends.

Synthetic Slate

 

DaVinci Single-Width Slate: Crafted using only virgin resins to guarantee a stainable roofing product, single-width tiles are available in 12" widths. This composite slate roof brings you a clean, simple design with the authentic look of natural slate.

From the Architect's Corner: Can You Tell the Difference?

For the last 15 years we have made it our mission to make the most authentic polymer slate and shake composite roofing tiles on the market. You know you've succeeded when time and time again you send homeowners, contractors, and architects out to see the products installed on a nearby home or business and their response is, "I drove right by it! It looked like natural slate and I was looking for a plastic slate." Or when you're standing in a tradeshow booth and people absentmindedly stop and touch the material, and end up blown away because it didn't feel like the slate or wood they were expecting to feel. 

I recently received this picture from a member of our DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor Program (Featured Project to come!) and had to share. With the copper gutters and flashings, these Multi-Width Slate tiles in the European Blend have the authentic look that people seeking a roof in our category require. If you were driving by and saw this roof, what would you think? 

Happy Friday, Architects!
