Why Does DaVinci Use 100% Virgin Resin in Our Shingles?

DaVinci SlateHave you ever wondered why DaVinci does not use recycled material in our shingles? 

We are one of the best green roofing materials that you can find, so why wouldn't we use recycled material in our shingles?

Although a plastic slate roof that has recycled material in it sounds environmentally friendly, it is not.  When you use recycled materials, there is no guarantee of the stability of the shingle and it's resistance to freeze, thaw and curling.

When a manufacturer cannot control the materials going into the product, then the product ends up being inconsistent.  As a result, many roofs need to be replaced.  For that reason, we use 100% pure virgin resins to guarantee a sustainable product and to assure consistency. Any of our materials that fail to meet finished specs are recycled for use in our starter tiles.
