Alabama Roofs Ruined by Hail

Side-by-side family homes in Jasper, Alabama recently received similar severe hail storm damage. Roofs on both homes — one of natural slate and the other an asphalt shingle — were deemed a "total loss" by the insurance companies.

When it came time to replace the roofs, owner Bobby Bull of Bull Building Supply, leaned on his industry expertise and selected DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofing tiles. For his multi-story home the selection was DaVinci Multi-Width Slate in an Aberdeen color blend of dark gray, light brown, dark purple, green stone and dark stone.

For his son's ranch-style home next door, the choice was DaVinci Multi-Width Shake in the Tahoe color blend featuring five shades of brown Tahoe. Both roofs are fire- and impact-resistant with 50-year limited warranties, so hail storms won't be a problem in the future.

"We installed the roofs on both homes and they look tremendous," says Steve Miller, president of Miller Roofing, Inc. "Bobby sells several roofing products, including DaVinci. He absolutely knew that this would be the best roof for his own home. I've been installing roofs for 45 years and the DaVinci product is one of the most impressive roofing products I've ever seen.

"When you think that natural slate was so damaged by the hail that it was a total loss, you have to wonder why more people don't use alternative roofing materials like those from DaVinci. These slate and shake synthetic products have such a realistic look you simply can't tell it's not the real thing."
