Fifty years is a long time. Imagine how much your body ages during five decades of living. Now imagine how much sun, wind and weather exposure a DaVinci Roofscapes designer roof receives in 50 years.
We've made sure our dependable composite slate and synthetic shake roofing tiles will hold up year after year. If you're a roofer, it's up to you to make the right decision on the nails you use to assure that the DaVinci roof tiles you install now will indeed stay on the luxury roof for at least 50 years.
At DaVinci, we recommend using copper, hot-dipped galvanized or stainless steel nails. Why? Because our roofs will last for decades, you need to make sure that the nails you use will also last that long. After all, you don't want callbacks down the line that the roof is fine, but the nails you used are popping or rusting!
Once you've made your nailing selection, keep this tip in mind: Remember to nail down the bottom tab on both Bellaforté composite slate and synthetic shake roofing products. It's important to secure the tabs for a firm, confident installation that can help prevent damage from high winds and severe weather. And, don't be stingy with those nails! Every DaVinci roof shingle should be secured using two nails, with dimensions of a 3/8" head by 1/2" length.
