Interview with Brad Van Weelden of the Brad Van Weelden Company in Des Moines, IA

Thank you to Brad Van Weelden of the Brad Van Weelden Company in Des Moines, IA for letting us pick his brain about the DaVinci roofing products he installs. 

Lightweight Roofing Solutions DaVinci Valore ShakeHow did you first discover DaVinci?

Kevan, our Sales Rep, at Allied Building Products introduced us to the product.

What do you like about DaVinci? Color blends? Shape of tiles? Performance?

We love the ease of installation. We also like the wide variety of color blends and profiles. There really is an option for everyone.

Furthermore, it is very necessary to have an impact resistant shingle in our area. We get hail storms yearly, so it is very important for homeowners and insurance companies to have a product like DaVinci as a solution.

What's the biggest thing that homeowners say to you about DaVinci?

It looks real! Our last job was Valoré Shake in Espresso Blend. The homeowner wanted a tile to match as closely as possible the look of his 15 yr. old shingle roof.  It turned out great!

Why do you like DaVinci?

Ease of installation, variety of options, and performance of the product.

Which DaVinci products do you like? Do you have a favorite color blend?

I really like the Shake.

What other roofing products do you install?

We install asphalt shingles, stone-coated steel shake, standing seam, and tile.

How long have you been in the roofing  business?

This our 16th year in business!

Do you have a favorite DaVinci job? In other words, a favorite house or building where you installed DaVinci? Why is it your favorite? Could you send photos so we can include them in the post?

Our last job is always our favorite! So right now it would be the Espresso Valoré Shake job at Glen Oaks Country Club in West Des Moines.
