Bellaforté Shake: Changing Minds and Rules
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Hail storms seemed to take aim at the real cedar roof of Colorado resident Pam Lariviere. In 2018 she called it quits and invested in DaVinci’s Bellaforté Shake composite roof in a Tahoe color. She convinced the Architectural Control Committee for her 600-home HOA community to allow DaVinci impact- and fire-resistant roof shingles for herself and other residents.
“We discovered that DaVinci products most closely resemble the profile of a cedar shake roof without the costly maintenance issues of real cedar. We also determined that the composite shake roof delivered on performance with its Class A fire rating, Class 4 impact resistance and 110 mph wind rating. Those impressive features sold us on the DaVinci roofing product.” – Pam Lariviere, Homeowner
Synthetic Slate Tiles Top Custom Home
Architect Michael LoBuglio knows that designing a custom home that sits on the Long Island Sound means taking extra care to specify the right roof. And he did, with a DaVinci Multi-Width Slate roof in Castle Gray. The durability of the composite roofing, compounded by its resistance to salt air, severe winds, impact and fire, make it the ideal roofing solution for this stunning award-winning home.
“Aesthetics were a key factor in the selection, but certainly not the only factor. Due to the home’s location, we needed a durable synthetic slate product that would resist high winds, impact, algae, fungus, insects and even termites. At the same time, we wanted a low maintenance roof for Hillary that would have a strong warranty. We found all these features in the DaVinci product.” – Michael LoBuglio, Michael LoBuglio Architects
Composite Slate Made to Stand Up to Severe Weather
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
It looked nice, but it didn’t last. Just seven years into its 50-year warranty period, the slate roof on the Dawson’s family home in Oklahoma was falling apart with slate shingles shattering down on the driveway. The family worked with Statewide Roofing to find the solution to their problems: durable DaVinci Single-Width Slate tiles in a European blend.
“When the next hail storm hits our neighborhood we expect several of our neighbors to switch to DaVinci composite roofs. The peace-of-mind that comes with knowing your roof overhead won’t get damaged by hail or blown away by strong winds is simply amazing.” – Evan Dawson, Homeowner
26 Homes Boast Synthetic Shake Roofs
Beaver Creek, Colorado
Gaze down the street of homes in the Village Walk community and you’ll see more than two dozen houses. Located on Beaver Creek Mountain in Colorado, these spacious ski-in/ski-out duplex homes had a big problem. After 11 years, the roofs overhead were leaking from deteriorating natural cedar. The solution? Installation of 26 new DaVinci Multi-Width Shake roofs in Autumn and Mountain blends.
“The Umbrella Roofing team stayed with the schedule and communicated effectively. They were easy to work with and attentive to all our needs.” – Michael Beardsley, CAM, Association Manager for Village Walk
Single-Width Composite Slate Tops N.J. Dream Home
Vorhees, New Jersey
When constructing their new two-story French Chateau style home, the Kolovos family knew they liked the look of real slate for their roof, but not the cost or the weight. After doing online research, they found a great alternative: low maintenance, lightweight composite slate roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes.
“We really liked the look of the Single-Width Slate tiles from DaVinci. We feel that the Smokey Gray color of the composite slate tiles truly complements our home’s design.” – Chris Kolovos, Homeowner
