Coast-to-Coast Hotel Roof Projects
KANSAS CITY, KAN. – Sitting royally in the heart of Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead section is the five-star St. Regis Hotel. And, sitting atop the roof of the hotel’s famous Paces 88 American Bistro restaurant are weather-resistant synthetic roofing tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes®.
“We got the call in early 2009 that the St. Regis wanted to add a small one-story addition to the front of its property to house a small caf?-type restaurant to the right of the main entrance,” says Todd Spencer, president/architect at Spencer Roofing & Construction, Inc. in Kennesaw, Ga. “The goal was for the roof addition to complement the roof on the main section of this prestigious hotel. This desire immediately brought DaVinci products to mind.
“We installed 15 squares of 12-inch DaVinci Dark Green authentic slate tiles in a mansard application on this restaurant roof. The match is ideal. When the doors opened to the 26-floor hotel in April of 2009 the roof and the entryway looked perfect.”
Oceanside Roof Project
Across the country in Carlsbad, Calif., the Beach Terrace Inn is also sporting a new DaVinci roof.
While guests checking into the 48-room hotel may initially be drawn to the oceanfront views, their gaze soon wanders to the fully-renovated hotel itself. And, that’s when they’re likely to notice the structure’s unique design and low-pitch roof.
When renovating the oceanfront hotel, the owners searched for a low-maintenance roof that could hold up to both the salt air and the harsh rays of the sun. They also wanted a roofing product that would add to the design of the overall design of the structure. After extensive research, they selected Valley Roofing to install synthetic roofing tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes in an Aberdeen blend to provide them with a variety of stone, gray, brown, green and purple shades on the low-pitch roof.
“The appeal of this product for the hotel owners was both from a visual and maintenance standpoint,” says Jackie Dyal with DaVinci Roofscapes. “They knew the roof’s pitch made it a design element of the building, so they wanted roofing tiles that complemented the hacienda-style of the project. But, they also wanted roofing that would stand up to the coastal conditions they experience.
“The decision to select DaVinci slate tiles for this project means the owners can rest free with a 50-year warranty. Each tile resists high wind, fire and high impact with virtually no periodic maintenance. And, despite the harsh sun, the colors of the tiles will not fade. The organic colorants are infused into throughout each 100 percent pure resin tile during manufacturing processes.”
DaVinci Roofscapes has manufactured award-winning synthetic slate and shake roofing since 1999. The polymer roofing tiles are virtually maintenance free and far more cost effective than the natural product. DaVinci leads the industry in tile thickness, the tile width variety and the greatest selection of subtle earth-toned colors. Company products have a 50-year warranty and are 100 percent recyclable. DaVinci proudly makes its products in America and is a member of the National Association of Home Builders, the Cool Roof Rating Council and the U.S. Green Building Council.
