Flying Garbage Cans? No Problem with a DaVinci Roof
Is there any chance we'll meet Tomas, Virginie and Walter this year? Those are the last three storm names that would be used for the 2016 Hurricane Season, which ends November 30.
Even though it's unlikely all the names on the hurricane list will be used this year, there is a very good chance that high winds and severe weather will continue to impact many areas of the United States. That's why high-wind resistant DaVinci Roofscapes composite roofing shingles are a good choice for homes all across the country.
Can you imagine the conditions your roof goes through at winds of 30, 50 or even 90 mph? A reporter with the Associated Press wanted to experience these conditions for himself, so he went to a wind tunnel laboratory at the University of Maryland. After getting harnessed in, he had the team crank up the winds … all the way up to 100 mph.

During severe weather — not even hurricane conditions — high winds can rip some roofing tiles right off the roof. And, flying debris during a storm can deeply damage some roofs. Not DaVinci polymer roofing.
Our roofs are manufactured and tested to stand firm in extreme weather conditions. (see DaVinci Roof Tiles: Engineered to Withstand Hurricane Force Winds) DaVinci roofs meet the ASTME D3161 test for withstanding 110 mph sustained winds. Our simulated shake roofing and composite slate roof tiles also have a Class 4 impact rating (UL 2218 Impact test) … so if a tree limb falls on your DaVinci roof or a flying garbage can hits it, you don't have to worry about broken tiles.
