Canadian Barns Updated with Synthetic Shake Roofing
The signs of autumn are everywhere — pumpkins, scarecrows and barns with DaVinci Roofscapes polymer roofing!
Yes, that's correct. In Canada there are several beautiful old red barns being refurbished with polymer roofing from DaVinci, showing another unique use for our simulated shake roofing tiles.
In Ponoka, Alberta, a homeowner decided to have Woodchuck Roofing Ltd. replace her worn out cedar roof shingles with Bellaforté Shake tiles in a Weathered Gray blend. "Alberta is notorious for massive hail and crazy storms as well as harsh winters and hot, dry summers," says Charles Busque with Woodchuck Roofing. "DaVinci roofing materials are ideal for this environment."
Bellaforté Shake is also the choice of another homeowner in Bentley, Alberta who is replacing the cedar roofing on her 100-year old barn.
"This barn was previously used for housing Chuck Wagon thoroughbred horses and has now been turned into a workshop," says Corey Rosta with Monarch Siding & Roofing Centre. According to Rosta, the Autumn blend of synthetic shake roofing was selected for this historic barn.
No matter which way the winds blow this autumn, these barns are now ready for the chill to set in thanks to the durability of Bellaforté Shake. At a one-inch average tile thickness, these polymer shake shingles are reminiscent of jumbo shakes.
