All in the Family … Bellaforté Shake Roofs

When golf-ball sized hail destroyed Laura and Todd Garrett’s roof in McKinney, Texas they didn’t have far to search for a new roof suggestion. Laura’s parents had been in the same situation just months earlier.

“A bad hail storm hit our home in Prosper, Texas and damaged the composition shingles enough that we needed a new roof,” says Vicki Swehla, Laura’s mother. “We wanted to upgrade our roof and followed the suggestion of David Washington, owner of Showtime Exteriors to invest in an impact-resistant Bellaforté Shake roof.”

When the Garretts found themselves in a similar hail-damage situation they started their search for a new roof … at the home of Laura’s parents.

“We had the desire to put a more durable and appealing roof on our home after the storm,” says Todd Garrett. “We saw how good the Bellaforté roof looked on my in-law’s home, and how it was standing up to our tough weather conditions.

“Because they had such a good experience with the DaVinci Roofscapes product installed by Showtime, we were immediately interested. Being able to see the finished roof on a similar home helped tremendously.” 

Curb Appeal Bonus

Both the Swehlas and Garretts selected the Mountain blend of Bellaforté composite shake tiles … and both appreciate how the new roof enhances the look of their homes.

“The curb appeal for our home is really very impressive now compared to what we had before,” says Vicki Swehla. “I would think this composite shake roof would be a great selling point if we ever choose to sell our house.”

Across town in McKinney, the Garretts are also pleased with the “new look” of their home.

“I think the Bellaforté tiles are a major improvement to both the look of our home and the value they add to our house,” says Garrett. “The fact that this composite shake roof can stand up to the elements much better than a standard composition roof gives me great peace-of-mind that my family and my home are better protected from the elements.”

Long-Term Benefits

The satisfaction of these two families over their new Bellaforté roofs comes as no surprise to the expert installers at Showtime Exteriors.

“We install up to 10 DaVinci roofs each year in our area,” says Washington with Showtime Exteriors. “The hail and wind resistance of this product makes it very appealing. Match that with the realistic shake look, the strong R-values and the great warranty we offer and it’s a win-win for any homeowner.”

In addition to the strengths of the Bellaforté product, another asset couldn’t be beat — a long-term discount on insurance premiums for the homeowners.

“We were told about the potential homeowner insurance discounts and that the roof had a great Lifetime Limited Warranty,” says Swehla. “That was music to our ears. Investing in the DaVinci product means we won’t have to go through the hassle of replacing a roof in the Dallas area for a long time.

“There have been several strong hail storms that have come through our area since the new roof was installed. The roof has held up nicely. We absolutely view the new Bellaforté roof as an investment in our safety and our home. It’s really nice to know the same type of composite shake roof is also helping to protect our daughter and her family.”
