How Do DaVinci Tiles Stand Up To "Sluggo" the Sledge Hammer?

Are you familiar with the show, MyFixitUpLife? The host, Mark Clement, likes to look at different building products and evaluate them.

Recently, Mark took a look at our polymer roofing tiles - well, taking a look was more like taking a hammer to it.  He also took a hammer to:

  • Natural Slate
  • Concrete Roof Tile
  • Cement Covered Foam
  • Stone Coated Steel

He then proceeded to take "Sluggo" to each roofing tile - "Sluggo", of course, is his sledge hammer.

The impact of Mark's hammer is very similar to the impact that a large hail stone would make when it hits your roof at a certain speed.

If you live in an area that is prone to hail, then it appears from Mark's experiment that DaVinci Roofscapes lightweight tiles might be just what your roof asks for to protect your family, your business and your belongings.

The video of Mark's testing is posted below - check it out!

Do you have a DaVinci roof? Do you live in a hail prone area and that's why you chose DaVinci? How has your roof stood up in the storms since you have had with your new roof? We want to hear your story - please feel free to leave a comment below with details.

We have Belaforte Slate tile installed Summer 2012. In Colorado you can have anything from hail, wind, snow, heat, to all of the above. We were replacing Spanish style curved concrete tiles and wanted something that would maintain the character and appearance but provide protection that the concrete tiles did not. Color was another issue as nothing seemed to go with our brick until we found DaVinci. I created a 4-color custom blend by printing various color combinations, printing them from the computer, and holding the printout up to the brick. The color tool online was so accurate that I only had to make 2-3 adjustments from my first selections to get the combination I wanted. The 50-year warranty and discount on our homeowners insurance sealed the deal. We love the result.
