It’s “Ask a Stupid Question Day”
How many times in life have you heard a teacher or parent say, "there's no such thing as a stupid question." Well … maybe there is. Why else would today be designated as "Ask a Stupid Question Day."
At DaVinci Roofscapes, we understand the general homeowner may not be familiar with the "ins and outs" of our polymer roofing products. After all, it's a complicated formula we use to create our impact-, fire-, insect- and algae-resistant simulated shake roofing and imitation slate shingles. That's why we want to share with you some of the most frequently asked (and not stupid!) questions we get about our composite roofing products.
Q: How do you get the color in your composite roofing tiles?
A: We use extra-strength crayons to color each tile. No, seriously … DaVinci lightweight roofing tiles are made of an engineered polymer with virgin resins and the colors are blended throughout each piece in the manufacturing process. We call it "color through and through." The polymer is also impregnated with fire retardant and the most advanced UV and thermal stabilizers available.
Q: How can you prove that your synthetic roofing materials will resist hurricane force winds and hail?
A: We use simulated weather conditions to make sure our sustainable roofing products can withstand severe weather conditions and meet the highest Class 4 Impact Resistance codes to provide a more secure home for you and your family. Our designer roof tiles have also achieved a 110 mph wind resistance rating, equivalent to Category 4 hurricane conditions. See for yourself …

Q: If my house burns down, will the fire-resistant roof still be standing?
A: Well, no. It's impossible for a roof to still stand if there's nothing to hold it up. However, a DaVinci Class A Fire Rated roof resists the spread of flames, so if you're in an area with wildfires and sparks "jump" or land on your roof, the DaVinci manufactured slate and shake alternative roof will not ignite.
