The U.S. Postal Service employees aren't the only ones who deliver in bad weather — DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofing tiles are manufactured to be installed and perform great in rugged, cold weather conditions!
Roofing contractors can install synthetic DaVinci roof products in temperatures as low as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. That's because our carefully-formulated imitation slate and shake alternative roof tiles aren't brittle (like plastic roofing materials are thought to be). Even in the bone-chilling cold temperatures, contractors don't have to worry about excess breakage of the luxury roof tiles due to cold weather conditions. DaVinci composite roofing tiles are manufactured to remain flexible in cold temperatures.
Of course we have a few tips for those warm-hearted, but cold weather installations. First of all, if you're the one on the roof, bundle up! Dress in layers and wear heavy shoes that can break pieces of ice or grip the roof sub-surface as you're installing slate and shake alternative products. Second, if you're using a pneumatic nail gun, make sure the pressure isn't set too high. And third, make sure that the DaVinci simulated slate and shake roofing tiles have been stored flat, and are flat when installed.
While winter installations are no "day at the beach" for a roofing contractor, the roof must go up — and hardy installers can re-roof homes with confidence during winter months when installing DaVinci lightweight roofing systems.
