Back to School with DaVinci Roofscapes
From Mohawk Avenue elementary school in New Jersey to the Sara Bea Learning Center at Notre Dame, DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofs can be found on school campuses across the country.
“Dozens of schools nationwide have selected DaVinci’s low-maintenance polymer roof tiles due to their aesthetic appeal and 50-year limited warranty,” says Ray Rosewall, president and CEO of DaVinci Roofscapes. “The long-lasting slate and shake tile shingles we manufacture can be found on the roofs at Willard Elementary School in Ridgewood, New Jersey, the dormitories at St. Joseph University in Philadelphia and on the Trinity Pawling School in Pawling, New York.
“These dependable Class A Fire Rated roofs are especially popular at colleges and universities for new construction projects like dormitories and classroom buildings. You’ll find fire-resistant DaVinci roofs on structures at Princeton College, Colorado State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Mount St. Mary’s and the College of New Jersey.”
At the State University of New York (SUNY) campus in Canton, New York, there are eight buildings that create the Smith and Mohawk Residences which house 850 students. Each dormitory features a mansard roof of DaVinci Slate roofing tiles in the European Blend color that reaches from the top of the buildings down more than four stories to the lawn below.
And, at the Mohawk Avenue School in New Jersey, 100-year old slate tiles had to be replaced after years of service. “We specialize in authentic historic design roofing work and this project totally fit our capabilities,” says Boyd with CM Boyd Authentic Design, the team that installed 198 squares of DaVinci tiles in the European blend color. “I knew as soon as we replaced that roof it would completely transform the look of the school. The authenticity of the polymer roofing tiles we used is one of the best advances I’ve witnessed in this industry.”
