LENEXA, KAN. - In the damp climate of the Pacific Northwest, algae and moss accumulation on roofs is a common concern. For some homeowners tired of maintaining and constantly cleaning these pesky growth formations from their roofs, easy-care polymer roofing tiles are their new best friends.
"Natural slate and cedar shake shingles can be increasingly difficult to maintain over time in this environment," says Jordan Eades, president of HOPE Roofing & Construction. "When homeowners see the advances of man-made polymer roofing tiles they get almost giddy with the idea that they'll be spending much less of their valuable time and money on maintenance to remove unsightly moss and algae from their roofs."
In recent years Eades and her team have started offering synthetic shake and slate roofing tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes. At the 2015 Building, Remodeling and Energy Expo in Sequim, Wash., Eades received overwhelming interest in the DaVinci product showcased in their booth.
"We're seeing that more and more customers want long-lasting and low maintenance features in their roofs," says Eades, whose company is headquartered in Port Townsend, Wash. "The Bellaforté roofs we're installing offer those advantages plus the look is very realistic. The beauty of these tiles coupled with the lifetime limited materials warranty are features that homeowners in our area are very excited about."
Eades and her team operate two locations that service Kitsap, Jefferson and Clallam counties located on the Olympic Peninsula. The company is involved with both new construction and remodeling efforts for roofs and other construction aspects. "We're experiencing a very strong, sustained interest in roofing projects right now," says Eades. "There's been no slow down since about June of 2014. The weather has been on our side and industry indicators are positive.
"Because we service an area with many historic homes, our customers are looking for roofing products that have the look and feel of natural slate and shake. DaVinci products deliver this authentic look. The company offers a wide range of choices that our customers appreciate. And, in addition to the ease of installation of their roofing products, what really makes DaVinci stand out from the competition is their customer service. The staff are always ready to go the extra mile for the contractor, installer and the end customers."
