Colorado Townhome Community Topped with DaVinci Roofscapes Polymer Shake Tiles

LENEXA, KAN. – As part of a two-phase re-roofing project, two dozen townhomes at Buckhorn – Bachelor Gulch now have impact-resistant DaVinci Roofscapes® Multi-Width Shake roofs overhead. Between August of 2013 and October of 2014, more than 77,000 square feet of the polymer shake roofing tile was installed by Umbrella Roofing.

Located in Avon, Colo., Buckhorn – Bachelor Gulch offers luxury living and fast access for residents and visitors to area ski slopes. The homeowners association for the community selected the DaVinci product in the Autumn blend to complement their mountainous location. Custom copper flat seam roofs and a full snow-retention plan designed by Rocky Mountain Snowguards was incorporated into the roofs on the multi-story townhomes.
“Our team has installed more than 100 DaVinci roofs in the Aspen and Vail areas,” says Trevor H. Cannon, owner of Umbrella Roofing. “This is the only synthetic roof we install. The track record we have with this polymer roofing product is very impressive.

463“In our geographic market people are moving away from real cedar shake shingles due to their deterioration and susceptibility to fire. Anytime we have a new customer looking for a simulated shake product we discuss the cost, insurance, appearance and maintenance saving aspects of the DaVinci product. These are features that immediately win over the client.”

Umbrella Roofing has 35 employees, many of those team members worked on the re-roofing project at Buckhorn – Bachelor Gulch.

“This project had a great number of steep slopes, was very ‘cut up’ and had many transitions from custom flat seam copper to the DaVinci polymer roofing tiles,” says Cannon. “Our quality installers embraced the challenges of this project and produced a superior finished roofing product.

“We specialize in re-roofing high-end residences. The combination of our expertise and the reliable DaVinci product have positioned us a step above our competition. When homeowners in this area want peace-of-mind plus a sensational looking imitation shake or slate roof, they come to us!”
