And The Award For Best Roofing Solution Goes To…

With all of the award shows on at this time of year is it any wonder I dreamed that I was hosting the Leo’s, a set of awards given annually for excellence of roofing industry achievements?

To win a Leo, the roofing tile must demonstrate outstanding performance with unparalleled elegance, making the installer an artist and every home a masterpiece. This is what inspired Leonardo 500 years ago and now inspires these awards today.

I was wearing an awesome designer gown, fabulous shoes and to-die-for jewelry. And why not, it was my dream after all. Joining me was a colorful cast of characters. All of the best and brightest in the housing industry were there. You could say it was a wall-studded event (forgive me…Billy Crystal I’m not)!



Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter,
sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist,
cartographer, botanist, and writer was the inspiration for “the Leo.”

As with any major awards show, everyone was on the edge of their seat waiting for the winners to be announced.. There were so many remarkable performances but with its three differentiators – thickness, multiple widths and factory collated color blends – DaVinci Roofscapes Slate and Shake swept the awards.


Best Slate Tile in a Leading Role: DaVinci Multi-Width Slate in Weathered Green


Best Shake Tile in a Leading Role: Bellaforté Shake, Abruzzo

Maybe I have a sense of humor even when I’m sleeping. Or perhaps I’ve just been working too much lately. Whatever the reason for conjuring up “The Leos” it sure was fun to think about hosting an awards show.

While if there ever is an awards extravaganza for building materials, I may not be ask to host but I think it is a sure bet that DaVinci Roofscapes will be among the big winners. And so will any homeowners that choose to top off their home with this remarkable product!
