There are reasons why words like “sustainability”, “environment conscious” and “green” are becoming commonplace. And as these words pervade homes and commercial establishments, they are completely redefining the way things are made, designed and installed. DaVinci Roofscapes lightweight tiles are environment friendly and there are several reasons for that:
1. The three Rs: Know the three Rs of environment science – Reduce, reuse and recycle? Well, our polymer roofing material abides by all three. Because it is durable and it reduces the amount of waste at the job site. Because it is made of a polymer, we can easily recycle and reuse it even after it has graced a roof for 50 years, which brings us to our next point.
2. 50 year lifetime: Not many things last. And when they don’t, they often end up in the nearest landfill. Our synthetic slate shingles and our shakes can stay put on a roof for half a century, thus saving landfill space.
3. Less use of natural resources: The quarrying process consumes large amounts of labor and fuel and can be harmful to the local ecosystem. DaVinci tiles can weigh one-third as much as natural slate of comparable thickness, transportation energy costs and carbon emissions are lower.
4. Save electricity: Our roofing tiles reflect radiant heat back, thus keeping homes cool on hot days. This keeps costs low and saves electricity.
