Revolutionary New Bellaforte Roofing Tiles Introduced

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – DaVinci Roofscapes®, the leader in synthetic roofing tiles, has introduced the patented Bellaforté(TM) product line. The new synthetic tiles incorporate several patented features, including an integrated rain gutter, leading edge tab and rain dam, in an authentic 12-inch slate profile.

Bellaforté roofing tiles use twenty percent less material than traditional synthetic and natural slate shingles, saving resources and reducing the tile weight. A square of Bellaforté roofing tile weighs just 185 pounds, helping reduce both installation time and landfill load due to reduced construction waste.

Available in slate black and slate gray, each Bellaforté tile has been designed to meet the highest standards for wind, fire and impact. The tiles are 100 percent recyclable and come with a 50-year limited warranty.

“One of the most unique and beneficial aspects of the Bellaforté tiles is that they are self aligning both vertically and horizontally,” says Ray Rosewall, president and CEO of DaVinci Roofscapes. “This serves as a tremendous advantage by decreasing installation time and lowering the overall installed cost through the entire value chain.”

Bellaforté roofing tiles will also be available in DaVinci’s EcoBlend(TM) colors, which have been rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council as a “cool roof” that reflect and emit the sun’s heat back to the sky instead of transferring it to the building below. According to the Cool Roof Rating Council, “coolness” of a roof is measured by two properties, solar reflectance and thermal emittance. Cool roofs can save energy and reduce global warming mitigation, improve homeowner comfort, and help reduce urban heat island effect and smog.

Accessories available in the Bellaforté line include a one-piece hip and ridge starter and rake tiles.

All DaVinci Roofscapes products (including DaVinci Slate, Shake, Fancy Shake and Bellaforté product lines) utilize state-of-the-art UV stabilizers, have passed extensive industry testing and are easy to install. Tiles come pre-bundled for hassle-free installation and 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.

DaVinci Roofscapes has manufactured award-winning synthetic slate and shake roofing since 1999. The engineered polymer roofing tiles are far more life cycle cost effective than the natural product. DaVinci leads the industry in tile thickness, the tile width variety and the greatest selection of subtle earth-toned colors. For additional information call 1-800-328-4624 or visit our website.
