Daughter Knows Best
When the Gapultos of Russellville, Alabama decided to replace their worn-out cedar shake roof, they went to an expert for advice — their architect daughter, Aimee Gapultos.
Aimee, who works for Wiser Company and has had experience with specifying green roof systems, wanted a product that would complement the home’s natural stone and wood exterior facade.
"My advice to them was to use synthetic shake tiles from DaVinci," says Gapultos, AIA, LEED AP. "I previously specified similar synthetic tiles for a historic train depot project and was impressed with them. With the DaVinci shake roofing tiles in particular, I like the thickness, profile, and texture of the shakes.
