Shake it Off …

If you’re looking to replace a cedar shake roof and think you need to stick with real wooden shake shingles, we have some advice for you — shake it off!

Explore the option of composite shake products from DaVinci Roofscapes and you’ll never go back to curling, rotting and insect-infected real cedar roof shingles again. Even more importantly, you’ll never worry about fire spread on your roof again since DaVinci synthetic shake shingles have been tested and achieved a Class A rating for fire retardance.

This testing means that the roof will withstand extended fire exposure. With a roof bearing a Class A rating, homeowners know that their roofs will resist the spread of fire and help protect the roof deck while not producing flying firebrands and embers.


“We use independent, third parties to test our composite roofing materials to assure they meet or exceed Class A ratings so that homeowners have the peace-of-mind of knowing their homes will be secure,” says Ray Rosewall, president and CEO of DaVinci Roofscapes. “Our shake alternative roofing tiles have also achieved the highest rating for straight line wind testing at 110 mph, Miami Dade Florida wind certification, and a Class 4 rating for impact resistance. This means the roofing tiles can resist wildfires along with the falling and flying debris during wildfires.

“No matter where you live, having a DaVinci Roofscapes cedar shake alternative roof overhead means you have gone the extra mile to increase the odds that your home, personal belongings and family treasures will be there when wildfires, hail and severe weather have passed.”
