DaVinci Roofscapes WINNER Share Her Experience

What does it feel like to win a new luxury roof from DaVinci Roofscapes? Ask Lois Phelps of Ashkum, Illinois. Last year she won one of two major Bellaforté polymer roofing prizes in the 2013 Great TOH Giveaway sponsored by This Old House magazine.

“I can’t think of a suitable word to describe how surprised I was to be a winner of a DaVinci roof,” says Phelps. “I rarely enter contests of any sort and to win a new shake alternative roof of DaVinci quality was not anything I ever envisioned happening.”

After consulting with color expert Kate Smith, Phelps chose the Tuscano blend of four autumn shades for her Bellaforté Shake roof prize. “This color is perfect!” says Phelps. “I looked at the DaVinci custom colors and the Tuscano synthetic shake shingles were still my favorite.”


Since her roof was installed, Phelps has become a mini-celebrity in her area. “This is a small community so many people stopped and watched the composite shake shingles being put on,” says Phelps. “There have been nothing but positive comments. I’m stopped in other communities (the latest at a farmer’s market!) and asked about my new shake tile roof.

“The entire process from the moment I was sent the message that I had won one of the DaVinci prizes through the completion of the installation has been a wonderful experience. My contractor said that installing the Bellaforté roof was like putting a puzzle together and something he enjoyed.

“Best of all, this past weekend our area was hit with a destructive storm with 60-70 mph winds and hail. My new designer roof weathered the storm just fine!”
