Wildland Urban Interface

Protection from the elements.

Beauty vs. The Beasts

DaVinci comes out on top.

Against air, water, and especially fire. 

Yes, DaVinci composite roofing and siding delivers the beauty of natural cedar shake and slate for years on end, without wear or maintenance issues. Even better, it’s also tough as nails — which is especially important in these days of increasingly intense weather and dangerous wildfires.

More of that incredible DaVinci roof over at Tahoe. Man, Montana is great.

Made to take the heat.

The perfect defense for the WUI. 

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) marks the transition between undeveloped wildland and human development. It’s a place where fire can easily jump from one side to the other. That’s why WUI Codes require that a structure’s exterior be ignition resistant, and resist the entry of flying embers and flying radiation. WUI standards also go beyond this, taking into account the entire roof or siding system — including the underlayment — as well as the building site itself, to ensure that there’s a safe zone around the structure.

Fortunately, all DaVinci composite roofing passes three critical tests to earn a Class A rating for fire resistance — the highest level. And they’re all certified to meet WUI requirements. 

Driven by these codes, Wes Coast states are seeing both tighter insurance requirements and restrictions on building materials — which is making wood look like a not-so-great option. As builders and homeowners seek out alternatives, DaVinci products, with their top ratings and lifetime limited warranties, are one of the most attractive ways to face down danger.
