Fire Resistance in DaVinci Lightweight Roofing Solutions

Fire resistance, wherever you live, is always an important thing to consider when it comes to the roofing product that you are going to choose for your home or building. However, there are certain areas of the United States (and all around the world for that matter) where wild fires can pose a serious problem.

As a result, while others might be searching for wind resistance or impact resistance,  you might be curious about the fire resistance in our shingles.

Here's a breakdown of the fire resistance certifications for both our polymer slate roof systems and cedar shake alternative roof systems:

SLATE

  • Multi-Width - Class A - ASTM E 108 with one layer 30# ASTM D 226
  • Single-Width Valoré - Class A - ASTM E 108 with one layer 30# ASTM D 226
  • Bellaforté - Class A - ASTM E 108 with two layers Fontana VulcaSeal G-40
