Composite Shake Roofing Makes Great First Impression

You only get one chance to make a first impression … that's why builder Tim Aalders with Handcrafted Homes decided to use a Bellaforté Shake designer roof on a show home in Salt Lake City.

"This is the first time we've used composite roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes we're very impressed," says Aalders, owner of Handcrafted Homes based in South Jordan, Utah. "People visiting this home love the cedar shake alternative roof. They are constantly asking about the type of material it's made of and what the color is of the polymer shake roofing tiles. We have to answer questions about the roof all day long!"

The realistic looking Bellaforté Shakes have a natural hand-split cedar shake look with sawn edges and staggered lengths. Each one-inch thick tile is 100 percent recyclable and meets exceptional testing standards.


Designer Roof


According to Aalders, the different seasonal weather and high winds experienced in Utah make the simulated shake roofing a good choice for their homes.

"The Tahoe blend of roofing colors looks very authentic and complements the overall style of the house design," says Aalders. "We've been pleasantly surprised at the response to the roof. Some show home visitors have specifically asked if we could reroof their homes with this product! We were able to refer these people to area roofers and we already know of three homes that have the new DaVinci roofs as a result!"
