Interview with Stella Amador of Florida Quality Roofing

Thank you to Stella Amador of Florida Quality Roofing for talking to us about our lightweight roofing solutions.

How'd you first discover DaVinci?

Lightweight Roofing Solutions installed by FLORIDA QUALITY ROOFINGI first discovered DaVinci products through a commercial project involving Bahama Breeze restaurants. The restaurants had wooden shakes that needed to be replaced to composite shakes. Our client required the same or better look of wooden shakes but with a longer product life. After researching for such specifications I was introduced to DaVinci, which exceeded my client's demands by offering a 50 year product warranty.

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

The most impressive aspect of DaVinci products is the overall quality. This includes quality of colors, sustainability, life of the product, and aesthetics.

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

Simple, it looks beautiful.

Do you have a favorite DaVinci job?  In other words, a favorite house or building where you installed DaVinci?  Why is it your favorite? 

Yes, my favorite job was re-roofing the first Bahama Breeze restaurant. I enjoyed it because it was our first project with DaVinci and the results were astonishing. The difference between the previous wood shake roof and the final result with the DaVinci Autumn Blend Shake were immeasurable. Also, our workers were transformed, by our fourth Bahama Breeze they were no longer roofers, they were artisans.
