You may think the title to this blog is misleading. After all, as easy as DaVinci Roofscapes Bellaforté tiles are to install how could it be made easier. The answer is, we got feedback from you contractors and we listened.
When DaVinci Roofscapes Bellaforté lightweight tiles were first introduced we recommended they be installed straight, horizontally, and with a defined pattern vertically. The horizontal pattern is easy because there is a ledge on the back of the tile that rests on the tip of the tile below it. That part is virtually automatic. The vertical pattern however takes a bit of figuring and effort.
The feedback we received from installers was that it would be much easier and even better looking to have the vertical pattern random. With a random pattern you don't need to be very precise, you can practically put your tape measure away, and this type of installation makes a more efficient use of material.
We thought about it, looked at it, and you know, you guys are right. It's much easier and looks fabulous. Thanks for your input!
