DaVinci Fancy Shake Synthetic Roofing Tiles Offer Refined Cedar Look
KANSAS CITY, KAN. – DaVinci Roofscapes®, the leader in synthetic roofing tiles, has introduced a new cedar shake roofing tile option. Fancy Shake roofing tiles offer a machine-sawn cedar look, providing a more refined appearance on homes than a traditional hand-split cedar shingle.
A pristine roofing tile with a clean, smooth look on both sides, DaVinci’s Fancy Shake is available in four unique color blends — Autumn, Mountain, Tahoe and Weathered Gray. The blended color runs throughout each tile for a naturally authentic appearance all year long. Each roofing tile is embedded with state-of-the-art UV stabilizers and backed by a comprehensive 50-year warranty.
The virtually maintenance-free Fancy Shake tiles are fire retardant (with a Class A fire rating) and come in three widths (five-, seven- and 12-inch). Tile widths are pre-collated at the factory, creating a distinctive and varied pattern when installed. The 18-inch long tiles have achieved the highest ratings for straight-line wind testing at 110 mph and Class 4 impact testing ratings. Fancy Shake roofing tiles have been approved by the Florida Building Code.
“We developed the Fancy Shake style of roofing tiles in response to homeowners and contractors requesting a smoother, flatter roofing tile that replicates homes constructed in the late 1800s,” says Ray Rosewall, president and chief executive officer of DaVinci Roofscapes. “This classic look is perfect for both contemporary housing styles and restoration or historic projects typically associated with the New England states.”
One of the strongest advantages to the Fancy Shake roofing tile is the ease with which the product can be installed. No special tools or training are required to install DaVinci roof products and tiles come pre-bundled with varying widths for hassle-free installation. As with all DaVinci products, the Fancy Shake tiles resist curling, cracking and fading, mold, algae, fungus and insects under normal conditions. Additionally, DaVinci roofing tiles resist water absorption, which eliminates freeze-thaw issues and allows for installation in all weather conditions.
An optional, patented top coat system for Fancy Shake incorporates Kynar™, which provides additional UV inhibitors and a polymer grit to create an increased surface texture.
DaVinci Roofscapes has manufactured award-winning synthetic slate and shake roofing since 1999. The polymer roofing tiles are virtually maintenance free and far more cost effective than the natural product. DaVinci leads the industry in tile thickness, the tile width variety and the greatest selection of subtle earth-toned colors. For additional information call 1-800-328-4624 or visit our website.
