If you’re building a commercial structure in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, you’d better check the local laws — and use DaVinci slate or shake polymer roofing tiles!
Back in 2009, then Mayor Karen Messerli and the City Council voted to remove a restriction that allowed only concrete tile to be used on the roofs of commercial projects in the 65-square mile city. What product prompted this change? DaVinci Roofscapes synthetic roofing tiles.
To be considered for the waiver by the leadership in Lee’s Summit, DaVinci Roofscapes had to first show compliance with International Code Council – Evaluation Services (ICC-ES) for its imitation slate and shake products. An evaluation report — which is used by architects, engineers, contractors and specifiers — was presented to the City Council offering the positive findings of ICC-ES as to the compliance with code requirements of DaVinci plastic roofing materials.
The independent testing helped the City Council in Lee’s Summit understand that DaVinci Roofscapes are the perfect solution for new construction needs in their community. Impervious to freeze/thaw cycles, DaVinci slate and slate roof alternatives are often more cost effective than natural slate and shake shingles. They have superior color fade resistance with color throughout each designer roof tile for long-term durability. In addition, the virtually maintenance-free green roofing materials are ideal for commercial applications because they resist curling, fading and cracking under normal conditions.
The icing-on-the-cake for Lee’s Summit? The 50-year limited warranty provided by DaVinci that backs up their product. Now Lee’s Summit boasts at least a dozen projects with DaVinci simulated slate and shake roofing tiles overhead … and law-abiding contractors below!
