Ask a Homeowner
If you’re starting to research new roof options and you’ve found this blog site, then you know that we have many testimonials and insights from roofers and contractors. You may have even read some of our stories related to residential projects. Now we invite you to “ask a homeowner” how they feel about our polymer roofing materials.
From our years of experience answering calls in customer service and dealing with questions from homeowners, we have a pretty good idea what questions you’d like to ask. So, here are some top questions, with answers supplied by homeowners who have chosen to use our simulated slate or synthetic shake roofing materials.
Q: How did you discover DaVinci polymer roofing products?
A: We did what most homeowners do when searching for product options — we turned to the Internet. After searching for faux slate shingles, we found that many companies produced these products, but our research showed that most of them warp over time. We discovered that only the slate tiles produced by DaVinci Roofscapes are uniquely designed to resist warping, fading, curling and cracking. And, these polymer tiles are fire and impact resistant, so we never have to worry about how our intense Texas heat or hail storms will affect them.

Q: DaVinci products cost more than asphalt shingles. What made you invest in composite roofing?
A: The more I learned about the synthetic DaVinci roofing tiles, the more I liked them. As with most people, I had a budget. The cost of a synthetic slate roof from DaVinci was much more affordable than using real slate. The product perfectly complements the stone, brick and stucco features of our home. As an added benefit, the product comes with a lifetime limited warranty warranty. Even if the costs were equal, I’d still choose this DaVinci product because of all the inherent benefits of synthetic roofing tiles.

Q: There are so many colors to choose from. How did you decide?
A: We wanted a roof with some interest to it, not just one tedious color. The subtleness of the colors we selected (including Slate Black and Slate Gray with highlight colors mixed in of Light Green and Dark Green) blended well together. We liked the blend of the roof colors so much that they inspired us to select exterior siding and accent colors to complement it.

Q: How was the DaVinci team to work with?
A: The product testing and manufacturing processes were very impressive at DaVinci. Their customer service was also outstanding and we developed a great confidence in the team.

Q: We have an older roof that we’re trying to replace and add more color. How did DaVinci help you in a similar situation?
A: We did an extensive amount of research on roofing materials and searched for a realistic and durable slate product. The result is a DaVinci Roofscapes Multi-Width Slate roof that we love. We brightened up the home’s exterior — which previously had a black roof — by selecting the Vineyard blend of eight different colors — dark and medium tan, light and medium gray, light and dark violet, dark stone and dark amber. This color combination fits the era of the home and complements our cobblestone driveway and sidewalk, the stone exterior of the house and our copper gutters and snow guards.
