Roofer Selects DaVinci Synthetic Shake for His Own Home

Bo Mikuta knows roofs. Since 2003 his company, A. B. Edward Enterprises, Inc. has installed more than 5,000 roofs in the Chicagoland area. So, when it came time for Mikuta to select a roof for his family’s new home he had many options. He chose a synthetic shake roof from DaVinci Roofscapes.

“Over the years I’ve seen how beautiful the DaVinci composite roofing products look on a variety of home styles,” says Mikuta, president and CEO of A.B. Edwards Enterprises, Inc. out of Wheeling, Ill. “I wanted that same beauty and dependability on my own home.”


For his sprawling new home in Glenview, Ill., Mikuta selected the DaVinci synthetic shake multi-width tile in a Mountain blend of colors. The look and color of the roof has attracted positive attention from friends, family and neighbors.

Mikuta and his team install an average of 10 to 15 DaVinci composite roofs each year. The durability and dependability of the synthetic roofing material brings peace-of-mind to homeowners.

“As a business, we keep coming back to DaVinci roofing products for many reasons,” says Mikuta. “The design possibilities are limitless while the product provides superior energy efficiency and resistance to bad weather. These are critical features in the Chicagoland area where our extreme weather changes year after year.”

Family Affair

A.B. Edwards is a family-owned and operated business that employs more than 30 people. Along with roofing, the company specializes in all home exterior services, such as siding, windows, gutters, masonry and more.

“People in our area rely on us for quality workmanship and sound product recommendations,” says Mikuta. “We’ve had experience installing many products, so we know the best of the best. For us, when it comes to composite roofing, DaVinci falls in that category.

“When my family decided to build our new home, I knew the DaVinci synthetic shake product had all the qualities we wanted in a roof. When you consider that this roof resists hail, impact, fire and high winds, you know it will keep a family safe and secure. That’s what I wanted for my family … and it’s exactly what I got with my new DaVinci roof.”
