The world is a repository of historical structures. These ancient buildings often boast exquisite architecture and significance, but they also require protection and preservation. Failing to maintain these structures and replace parts that have weathered away with historically accurate products often detracts from the beauty of these old buildings and our rich history.
Most municipalities have a Historic District Commission that ensures that no district rules are violated while taking steps to restore or maintain a historical building. If the roof of an ancient building has slate roof tiles in a specific color, most rules only allow for the use of the same or similar tiles during replacement or restoration. This sometimes becomes challenging for business owners, churches, and/or architects when the same material is not available. Many times it forces the owners to use a more expensive product that can require a lot of maintenance and upkeep. But with the DaVinci Roofscapes' products, historic renovations are much easier.
Since our roofing material comes in a wide range of colors and color blends, the hues stated under historical guidelines are usually easily matched with our materials. Considering all these features, our products have been an great choice for popular historic districts, like for the St. Clement Eucharistic Shrine in Boston, Massachusetts.
