Earth, Wind & Fire

The popular musical team from the 1970s, Earth, Wind & Fire, were known for songs like "Boogie Wonderland" and "Shining Star." But, with a group name like Earth, Wind & Fire, you have to wonder if they might have really been "wanna-be roofers" in disguise.

After all, this singing team sang about "Reasons" and "System of Survival" which tie in perfectly with the desire of many homeowners for impact-, high wind- and fire-resistant DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofing tiles. (See DaVinci Roofscapes -1 … Mother Nature – 0)

Since homeowners these days must deal with severe weather conditions no matter where they live, it's understandable that they'd say "I've Had Enough" and switch to composite roofing. And, when considering the benefits of DaVinci manufactured slate or synthetic cedar shake, those same homeowners may break out into "Got to Get You Into My Life."

Homeowners quickly discover that "After the Love Has Gone" with their older roof products, DaVinci's benefits come shining through, and, dare we say, are a "Shining Star" in the marketplace. The Class 4 impact rated tiles are also rated Class A for fire retardance in the ASTME E 108 fire test. These same durable tiles have the highest ratings for straight line wind testing at 110 mph in the ASTM D3161 test (same as UL 997 Wind Uplift), have passed the TAS-125 certification test for wind uplift resistance in High Velocity Hurricane Zones and passed the TAS-100 certification test for wind driven rain.


Want more reasons to "Keep Your Head to the Sky" and consider DaVinci eco friendly roofing products? These impressive synthetic roofing materials have passed the accelerated weather ASTM 4798 test that replicates 4,500 hours of exposure (the equivalent of six months exposure to extreme temperature conditions, moisture and thermal shock) and have passed the freeze-thaw ICC-ES Test (Acceptance Criteria AC07, section 4.9) with exposure to temperatures from -40 F to 180 F in 22 hour cycles for approximately a month.

So, if you're concerned about earthly conditions such as wind and fire that could negatively impact your roof, take a tip from the famous band and sing another refrain of "Got to Get You Into My Life."
