Freeze/Thaw No Trouble for DaVinci Polymer Roofing

5 degrees in Nashville. -2 degrees in Atlanta. Sometimes winter’s deep freeze stretches far deeper into the South than usual. That’s just one good reason to consider DaVinci polymer roofing.

The good news is that, when these temperatures “heat up” to the 20’s and 30’s, roofers — whether they’re in the South or Midwest — can be back outside installing DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofing in either slate and shake tiles.

What some roofers might not know — because they don’t always experience extreme temperature conditions — is that DaVinci composite roofing materials are designed to be installed in areas where freeze/thaw conditions are common.

These hard-working imitation slate and synthetic shake polymer roofing products don’t absorb water, so there aren’t the same freeze/thaw issues that some roofing materials have. That means that even if a DaVinci polymer roof has moisture on it, there will be no damage during freeze/thaw cycles like cracking or splitting of tiles.

Recipe for Success

Made of virgin polymer resin, simulated shake roofing and composite slate tiles from DaVinci don’t react the same to colder weather conditions as natural roof products. For example, a real wood shake roof goes through freeze/thaw cycles constantly in some weather environments. This means that it is common to see cracking and splitting on some cedar roofs. In some areas of the country, the daylight to nightfall temperature swings alone can cause damage to cedar shake roofing.

In addition, DaVinci polymer roofing materials are very thermally stable. A 12″ polymer slate roof tile expands just 1/8″ with a 100-degree temperature swing. Thanks to this engineering feat, roofers don’t get the buckling or movement with a DaVinci tile that can put strain on fasteners as with some other products.

So roofers, add another warm layer of clothes. Then get back outside to install DaVinci polymer roofing tiles this winter. Keep your business growing through even the cold weather this year!
