You've seen it before. Maybe while driving through your neighborhood. You look up at a house and your eyes fix on the roof. And it looks old … or splotchy … or just plain ugly.
Like any other aspect of a home, most roofs have a limited lifespan — especially if it's an asphalt shingle or cedar shake roof. When roofing tiles curl, cup or break away, it's time for a replacement.
If you're examining your own roof and decide a replacement might be in your future, listen to what these professional roofing contractors have to say about their experiences with polymer roofing tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes and see How To Know When To Replace Your Roof.
"My client was looking for a synthetic slate roof that preserved the character of his house. He especially liked the authentic look of the DaVinci slate, the reflectivity and lightweight aspects of the product. I've installed more than 30 DaVinci roofs in the past 15 years, so I know it's a good product. Plus it's Made in America, which is important to us so we can support the U.S. economy."
–Scott Owen, President, Owen Enterprises
“The humid environment we have in the North Carolina mountains works against natural cedar shake, giving them a lifespan of perhaps just 20 years. We’ve replaced about 15 of the original wood roofs in the StoneBridge community with the DaVinci polymer shake products over the past several years with widespread applause from all the homeowners. DaVinci gives the residents the look of cedar shake, but with a much longer life span. Also, the product is not combustible and provides better protection from fire than real cedar shake.”
-Ken Bowman, Owner, Blue Ridge Roofing
“The Telecky roofing project really shows how the right man-made products can complement a historic home design. The Slate Gray color chosen for the DaVinci roof complements the strong Arts and Crafts lines of the home while subtly allowing the architectural details of the house remain the focal point."
–Blake Gillette, Owner, Christian Brothers Roofing
“I’ve worked with the DaVinci product before in our area and felt the long-term value these polymer tiles would bring to the Animas Museum project would be ideal. Each tile has a refined cedar look, much like a machine-sawn shake shingle, so it blends in perfectly with our mountain setting. Plus, the tiles resist insects, fungus, algae, mold, cracking, fading and curling.”
