How Do DaVinci Tiles Stand Up To “Sluggo” the Sledge Hammer?

Are you familiar with the show, MyFixitUpLife? The host, Mark Clement, likes to look at different building products and evaluate them.

Recently, Mark took a look at our polymer roofing tiles – well, taking a look was more like taking a hammer to it.  He also took a hammer to:

    • Natural Slate
    • Concrete Roof Tile
    • Cement Covered Foam
    • Stone Coated Steel


He then proceeded to take “Sluggo” to each roofing tile – “Sluggo”, of course, is his sledge hammer.

The impact of Mark’s hammer is very similar to the impact that a large hail stone would make when it hits your roof at a certain speed.

If you live in an area that is prone to hail, then it appears from Mark’s experiment that DaVinci Roofscapes lightweight tiles might be just what your roof asks for to protect your family, your business and your belongings.

The video of Mark’s testing is posted below – check it out!
