Colorful Composite Slate Roof Eases Sellers’ Remorse
Who wouldn’t miss this beautiful house? Certainly the Hill family did. Deciding to downsize after their children were grown, the Hills sold their house to Eric and Mika Hunter, owners of Precision Construction & Roofing. After a few years, the Hills got a bad case of seller’s remorse and called the Hunter’s. They made them an offer they couldn’t refuse and bought back their beloved home. But the story doesn’t end there.
Just after the Hills re-purchased the house, a severe storm brought pounding hail to their Keller, Texas, neighborhood. Not the homecoming they expected.
Knowing the Hunters so well, the Hills contacted them for their roofing needs. Their top priority? Roofing with the look of slate, but with a Class 4 impact rating.
“There was not a doubt that this home needed a DaVinci Roofscapes composite slate roof,” says Matthew Melrose, senior project manager for Precision Construction and Roofing, a DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor out of North Richland Hills, Texas. “The DaVinci Multi-Width Slate roof has both a Class 4 impact and a Class A fire rating. This roof will stand up to all types of severe weather and strong winds that we experience here in Texas.”
Colorful Composite Slate Roof
Happy with the DaVinci roofing recommendation, the Hills next turned to a color decision. Based on their stone exterior, they selected the Vineyard color blend of eight colors. Medium and Dark Tan, Light and Medium Gray, Dark Stone, Light and Dark Violet and Dark Amber all combine to create a sophisticated, colorful canvas on the roof.
“They chose the Vineyard blend to accentuate the stonework of the house and the copper accents,” says Melrose. “Together, the colors and the copper make the roof a focal point of this home.”
To create the showpiece copper turret, the roofing crew and a copper artisan riveted hundreds of pieces of individual copper panels to the turret deck. The pieces were interlaced together to provide a “woven” appearance.
Delivering a Quality Product
Given the size of the project, the Precision team of 10 invested almost three weeks on the colorful composite slate roof, custom copper and gutter work. The crew has installed about a dozen similar large roofs in the same neighborhood over the years.
“We take huge pride in our work product,” says Melrose. “We’ve been installing DaVinci products since 2008 and like to get people into DaVinci roofs whenever possible. We aim to deliver the very best. Our goal is to align our customers with quality products. That means working with materials and manufacturer partners we believe in.
“All you have to do is look at the finished product for the Hill home to see how beautiful this project looks. But it’s more than beauty. This roof has durability that will make these homeowners happy they re-invested in their home.”
