Happy Earth Day from DaVinci Roofscapes!

Happy birthday to the Earth! Started in 1970, Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide.

reduce reuse recycle graphicIn case you didn’t know, Earth is the third planet from the sun and the largest of the terrestrial planets. The Earth is the only planet not named after a god and its name comes from the word “erda” which means ground or soil. Very appropriate since the Earth has the greatest density of all planets in the solar system.

During Earth Day the world focuses on the environment — how to make it better, take care of it and reduce impact that can harm our planet. At DaVinci Roofscapes, every day is Earth Day. That’s because our manufactured slate and shake roofing tiles are 100% recyclable and have an extensive lifespan — backed by a 50-year warranty.

What makes our polymer roofing tiles earth-friendly? DaVinci composite roofing products are manufactured from a proprietary engineered polymer that includes multiple virgin resins, organic fire retardant, state-of-the-art color and UV stabilizers and inorganic pigments that are safe for the environment. Selecting synthetic DaVinci Shake roof tiles over wood shakes saves trees. Selecting synthetic DaVinci Slate roof tiles over natural slate saves labor and fuel and offers a smaller carbon footprint by reducing waste.

Here’s another fact. DaVinci Slate roof shingles weigh one-third as much as comparable natural slate, so energy is saved in transporting our composite slate tiles. And, DaVinci roofing tiles contribute less to landfills and use less of the earth’s resources than asphalt roof shingles because they can be recycled.
