Set against a landscape of mountain vistas, the Red Ledges community in Heber City, Utah is a planned community boasting unique homes — many of them designed by Kevin Price. Homeowners rely on Price to create eye-pleasing home exteriors that blend in with the natural Utah setting, starting with the roof.
"The three brown tones of our DaVinci Multi-Width Shake roof make up the Mountain blend," says Ann Fiery, homeowner. "The color is beautiful. It complements the colors of our stonework siding as well as the stain colors on the exterior.
"We wholeheartedly recommend Kevin for his design efforts, plus for his recommendation of DaVinci synthetic cedar shake roofing tiles. It's a great choice and we're pleased to have the shake alternative product on our home."
In the same community, Eric Gingras also sings the praises of the designer. "Kevin has an innate sense of combining the customer's requirements, architectural realities and building supply options," says Gingras. "Specifying the synthetic shake DaVinci roof is just one example of combining client needs with local covenants and restrictions to achieve a stunning home exterior."
For the Gingras home, Price specified the Bellaforté Shake roofing product in the Espresso blend of four tones of brown. "I love the dark color options on our roof as they complement our light-colored cedar siding," says Gingras. "In addition, I know the simulated shake roofing will retain its rich dark color without fading, splitting or rotting. We've eliminated the problems of natural shake roofs while gaining long-term durability without expensive or time consuming maintenance issues.
"Besides having a great looking low-maintenance roof, we are happy with the peace-of-mind provided by the fire-resistant features of the DaVinci polymer roofing products. The cost was a little more than traditional cedar shake roofs, but well worth the investment."
