Faking Out the Neighbors with Synthetic Roofing
Is it real, or is it fake? When it comes to having synthetic roofing material on a home, some people just can’t tell the difference.
At DaVinci Roofscapes one of the most common statements people make to us after their new synthetic slate or shake roof has been installed is that their neighbors keep coming over to visit … and ask about their new roofing product.
“We’re so happy with the transformation of our home and love driving up to the house every day,” says homeowner David Gaskin in Wisconsin. “We’ve received many positive (and envious!) comments and inquiries from our neighbors about the roof and our color selections.
“People are surprised to find out the roof is not real cedar, since cedar is a requirement of our area. We were able to petition for a waiver in our community, which was approved after our neighbors reviewed samples of the DaVinci product. They agreed with us that it has a natural look. For us, the best part is the maintenance-free aspect of this composite roofing.”
An Improvement of Cedar Shakes
“From a homeowner’s standpoint, we’re proud of our new composite shake roof,” says Angela Cate. “We’ve had many positive comments on the designer roof from neighbors and guests.
“We chose the DaVinci roof system due to its look and durability. We like the warranty package offered by DaVinci and the Bellaforté Shake is definitely an improvement over the original wood cedar shake roof we had previously.”
What the Neighbors Say
“All of our friends and family think it’s a real slate roof! This DaVinci roof truly complements the overall look of our home.”
Lou Mannarino, New Jersey Homeowner
“Neighbors have asked about our house and we’re happy to tell them about the DaVinci shake product. We may even be gloating a bit because there’s no maintenance involved with our composite shake roof. I think this is a product that will really catch on in our neighborhood.”
Anthony Saraniti, Connecticut Homeowner
“The new roof looks terrific. We’ve had a number of compliments on the roof and inquiries on what the materials are that we used.”
