Italian Lesson for Homeowners: Valore = Value
Budget-conscious homeowners have a cost-effective way to gain durable synthetic roofing tiles for their homes. DaVinci Valoré Shake and Valoré Slate products are backed by a 50-year warranty and offer protection from severe weather, fire and falling trees.
“Valoré means ‘value’ in Italian,” says Ray Rosewall, president and CEO of DaVinci Roofscapes. “We named this product Valoré because this tile delivers value to homeowners along with quality, durability and incredible appearance.”
Homeowner Khris Bipatnath in Trophy Club, Texas agrees. “We consider the Valoré Shake product recently installed on our home to be an investment in our future,” says Bipatnath. “This roof is made to withstand severe weather, impact and fire. With the crazy weather conditions different parts of our country has faced recently, I believe it’s essential to have a roof like this that resists hail, wind and other extreme weather conditions. And, this roof has further proven to be a sensible purchase because it will also save us on our long-term homeowner insurance premiums.”
Valoré Shake, a nine-inch wide roofing tile with the appearance of hand-split cedar shake, and Valoré Slate, a 12-inch wide roofing tile resembling natural slate, are available throughout the United States. The virtually maintenance-free tiles are fire retardant and have a Class A fire rating. They have achieved the highest ratings for straight-line wind testing at 110 mph and Class 4 impact testing ratings. As with all DaVinci products, the Valoré Shake and Valoré Slate tiles resist curling, cracking and fading, mold, algae, fungus and insects under normal conditions. Additionally, DaVinci roofing tiles resist water absorption, which eliminates freeze-thaw issues and allows for installation in all weather conditions.
The varied texture and profile of the single color Valoré Shake tiles create subtle shifts in hue and color which mimics the natural appearance of wood shakes. Standard colors include Autumn, Mountain, Tahoe and Weathered Gray as well as DaVinci EcoBlend(TM) colors that meet LEED-NC and initial ENERGY STAR® requirements.
“This synthetic roof provides us with the look of real cedar shake shingles without the hassles of worrying about real wood, at a more affordable price point,” says Bipatnath. “We even had a custom Dark Autumn blend especially created for us that complements the exterior of our home.”
All Valoré Shake tiles are 22-inches long with the color and state-of-the-art UV stabilizers embedded throughout each tile. Valoré Slate is available in five single colors, including Light Gray, Medium Gray, Dark Gray, Slate Gray and Slate Black. All tiles are 18-inches long.
