Is that a Peacock on the Roof?
No … although we understand your mistake. That's the colorful Vineyard blend of DaVinci Roofscapes polymer slate tiles.
Why would you mistake this roof for a peacock? Just consider this — the beautiful designer roof has been created with a combination of eight different colors including dark and medium tan, light and medium gray, dark stone, light and dark violet, and amber.
Many homeowners find such a colorful roof exceptionally appealing.
"We brightened up our home’s exterior by selecting the Vineyard blend," says Nancy Dye of Mill Mountain, Virginia. "This color combination fits the era of the home and complements our cobblestone driveway and sidewalk, the stone exterior of the house and our copper gutters and snow guards.”
According to Dye's roofer, Richard Miller of Miller Roofing & Guttering, the colors chosen for the roof united the exterior of the home. "The installation of the DaVinci product was flawless," says Miller. "As we laid in the different colors you could see the house exterior lighten up and come to life."
In northern Maine, the Fanjoy family also selected the colorful Vineyard blend of composite slate tiles from DaVinci for their roof. Looking for a strong visual interest to accent the home, the Fanjoys reviewed the “FRESH Home Exterior Colors” guide to learn about how to select the best color for their luxury roof.
“We went with the Vineyard blend because the reds were a little brighter than in the European blend, and there’s more brown and tan in this blend that gives the entire roof a little more ‘pop’ in appearance,” says homeowner Rob Fanjoy.
“Another consideration was the large, uninterrupted section of the front roof design. With the help of the Color Guide, we felt that a colorful blend would be very dramatic as people came up our driveway — and we were correct. We’ve received glowing complements and lots of interest in our synthetic slate shingles!”
