Roof Hail Damage No Fun

If you have any doubt that hail can severely damage a roof, just ask the residents of Oklahoma.

On March 25th severe weather tore through the state of Oklahoma wrecking havoc for millions of homeowners — and damaging thousands of roofs. Hail the size of baseballs, tornados and hurricane-strength winds reminded Midwesterners that tornado season is well underway.

These are just some of the many homeowners who had DaVinci Roofscapes composite roofing installed last year after previously experiencing roof hail damage in recent years.

"We were in the market for a new roof after a hail storm," says homeowner Kevin Riley of Norman, OK. "Being in Oklahoma I wanted to put something on our roof that would stand up to future storms. The DaVinci roofing product has provided us with the durability to handle our unpredictable weather plus enhanced the architectural look of our home."

"Hail severely damaged our original roof," says John Simonelli. "The new engineered polymer Bellaforté Slate roof we had installed got us a discount from State Farm and made our home look more elegant and tailored. We're now getting compliments on our roof, and that never happened before."

Another Oklahoma resident, Dr. James Magnusson, also upgraded to impact-resistant composite roofing due to hail damage on his previous roof. "If you live in Oklahoma, you have to expect hail," says James Magnusson. "We made the investment in DaVinci Single-Width Slate roofing because of its durability to hail coupled with its classic look. That's a winning combination."
