Have you ever wondered WHY some roofing shingles seem to fade over time? Maybe they don't have enough "sunscreen" to combat Mother Nature's intense rays!
Since May is Ultraviolet (UV) Awareness Month, we wanted to help educate you on how a DaVinci roof can help resist getting damaged by the sun's powerful rays — without lathering up with sunscreen.
At DaVinci Roofscapes, our composite roofing tiles are manufactured from a proprietary engineered polymer that includes multiple virgin resins, organic fire retardant, state-of-the-art color and UV stabilizers and inorganic pigments that are safe for the environment. These UV stabilizers are what helps protect our polymer roof tiles from fading — even after decades of intense daily sun exposure.
Want even more protection from the sun? Then consider our EcoBlend tiles that actually reflect sunlight and heat away from your home. These composite roofing tiles are rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council and have earned the designation as an ENERGY STAR® qualified product. The qualified colors include EcoBlend Weathered Gray (in Medium, Medium Light, Medium Dark, Light and Dark) and EcoBlend Gray (in Dark, Light and Medium). (See What is EcoBlend? )
This summer, keep the SPF50+ sunscreen for yourself. And, for your roof, consider sustainable roofing from DaVinci with its own built-in sunscreen!
