Environment/Green Building Practices

  • Virgin resins used to manufacture roof tiles guarantee sustainability.
  • Every DaVinci tile is 100% recyclable.
  • Extensive lifespan of DaVinci tiles with a Lifetime Limited Material Warranty.
  • DaVinci 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.
  • Selecting synthetic DaVinci Shake roof tiles over wood shakes saves trees.
  • Selecting synthetic DaVinci Slate roof tiles over natural slate saves labor and fuel and offers a smaller carbon footprint by reducing:
    • Waste – 15% of natural slate breaks or cracks during installation.
    • Waste – DaVinci tiles are 100% recyclable.
    • Energy and transportation costs – DaVinci Slate weighs one-third as much as comparable natural slate.
  • DaVinci roofing tiles contribute less to landfills and use less of the earth’s resources than asphalt roof shingles because they can be recycled.
  • DaVinci roofing tiles are shipped on re-useable wooden pallets.
  • DaVinci has developed EcoBlend cool gray roof tiles to meet the standards of the Cool Roof Rating Council® and ENERGY STAR®. DaVinci cool roof tiles reflect sunlight and heat away from your home. Higher emissivity and reflectivity rates lead to greater reductions in the cooling load and, in return, increase energy efficiency. Less air pollution contributes to the reduction of heat islands around cities and populous areas.
  • DaVinci roofing tiles contribute to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification Process (LEED-NC Standard 2.2) by:
    • WE 1.1 – 1.2 – Water Efficient Landscaping – DaVinci products work well with captured rain systems, preserving potable water. (1-2 points)
    • MR 2.1 – 2.2 – Construction Waste Management – DaVinci products divert 50% to 75% of roofing materials from landfills. (1-2 points)
    • MR 3.1 – 3.2 – Resource Re-Use – When carefully removed, 5% to 10% of DaVinci products can be re-used. (1-2 points)
    • MR 5.1 – 5.2 – Regional Materials – DaVinci products are manufactured in Lenexa, KS, for significant transportation savings within a 500-mile radius of the plant. (1-2 points)
