KANSAS CITY, KAN. - DaVinci Roofscapes®, the color leader in the polymer roofing industry, will showcase the company's most popular shake and slate products lines at the 2014 International Roofing Expo in Las Vegas, February 26 – 28, 2014. Located in booth 1573 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, the DaVinci exhibit includes Bellaforté® Shake and Slate products, along with DaVinci Multi-Width Slate and Shake roofing tiles plus samples from the Valoré Slate and Shake product lines.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2014, DaVinci develops and manufactures industry-leading polymer slate and shake roofing systems with an authentic look and superior performance. All DaVinci products are made in the U.S.A. by experienced professionals dedicated to creating reliable high-performance synthetic roofing products that add value and prestige to residential and commercial projects.
Bellaforté Shake and Slate
One of the most popular product lines available from DaVinci Roofscapes, Bellaforté polymer roofing tiles in shake and slate profiles play a major role in the company’s booth this year. The patented features of Bellaforté roofing tiles, which include a leading edge tab and a self-aligning ledge, help reduce the installation time for the products. A square of Bellaforté tiles (with 100 pieces per square) weighs just 190 pounds. This lower tile weight helps reduce installation time and transportation costs.
All DaVinci tiles resist curling, cracking, fading, mold, algae, fungus and insects, making them ideal for installation in a wide variety of geographic areas. Just as with other DaVinci products, the Bellaforté tiles are 100 percent recyclable and come with a 50-year limited warranty.
Significant projects completed in 2013 with Bellaforté roofing tiles include:
- Catawba Shores 35-unit condo complex in Port Clinton, Ohio
- Residences with Bellaforté product in Alberta and Thunder Bay, Canada
- The Beach House by Absolute Green Home in South Salem, New York
- Red Ledges 22-home community in Heber City, Utah
DaVinci Multi-Width Slate and Shake
DaVinci Multi-Width Slate is carefully engineered to provide the authentic look and durability of natural slate using 100 percent virgin resins to guarantee a sustainable product. Available in 12″, 10″, 9″, 7″ and 6″ widths, bundles arrive at the job site pre-sorted by color and size, eliminating on-site sorting and guesswork. The polymer slate is crafted to display rough edges and natural stone-like surface textures and comes at an impressive 1/2″ tile thickness.
DaVinci Multi-Width Shake displays the texture of natural cedar shake with a deep-grained surface. Available in 9″, 8″, 7″, 6″ and 4″ widths along with a virtually limitless color palette, the multi-width shake product features both wavy and straight grains throughout the blend for an authentic appearance. Multiple widths of the 5/8″ profile on the tiles help create a more natural, non-repeating appearance that can be laid in either a straight or staggered pattern.
Each DaVinci polymer roof shingle is lightweight, impervious to freeze/thaw cycles, impact resistant, maintenance free, color fade resistant, Class A fire rated (with specified underlayments), UL 2218 Class 4 impact rated, and wind resistant to 110 mph. All DaVinci polymer tiles resist water absorption, which eliminates freeze-thaw issues and allows for installation in most weather conditions.
Significant projects completed in 2013 with DaVinci Multi-Width tiles include:
- Clock Tower in Vail, Colorado
- Mai Kai 34-unit condo complex in Newport Beach, California
- The North Face® retail store in Victor, New York
