DaVinci Designated Gold Sponsor in Green Life Smart Life Project
DaVinci Roofscapes®, the leader in synthetic roofing tiles, has supplied the company’s award-winning line of DaVinci roofing tiles for the Green Life Smart Life home project in Narragansett, Rhode Island. The 4,300-square-foot ocean view home was constructed to LEED® standards and features a multitude of environmentally-friendly building products and practices.
“This home is the first in the country using the environmentally efficient DaVinci Weathered Gray roofing tiles,” says Joe Hageman, owner of the home. “We anticipate this roof will help us save up to an estimated 15 percent each year on energy costs while improving the comfort of our home.
“We selected these roofing tiles for several reasons. Along with the energy efficiency aspects of the tiles, they have been rated Class 4 for impact resistance, have the highest ratings for straight line wind testing at 110 mph and have a Class A fire retardance rating. These are all features that will help the roof stand up to the potentially severe coastal weather we face in the future.”
