Five Years Later: Report on DaVinci Slate Roof
When Rob and Holly Fanjoy moved to Maine five years ago they looked up … and saw that their new home absolutely needed a new roof.
Given the harsh winter weather Maine gets each year, they knew a reliable roof was needed. They selected a Multi-Width Slate roof in a Vineyard blend from DaVinci Roofscapes. (See Maine Challenge)
After five tough winters, we checked in with homeowner Rob Fanjoy to see how his synthetic slate roofing has held up.
Q: What type of weather conditions has your roof been exposed to since 2011?
Fanjoy: The weather in Maine has been atypical the past several years. A bitterly cold winter with several feet of snow would be followed by a cool summer with drenching rains. The next winter was very icy, followed by a brutally hot and humid summer. Through it all, our imitation slate roof has held up perfectly and retains its beautiful appearance.
Q: You researched DaVinci roofs quite a bit before making your roof selection. Has the DaVinci product lived up to your expectations?
Fanjoy: No. Actually, it has exceeded our expectations. We set the expectation bar very high for this roof. The performance and aesthetics are top-notch and we have absolutely zero complaints.
Q: What would you say to someone asking your opinion on whether or not to invest in a DaVinci roof?
Fanjoy: I would wholeheartedly recommend a DaVinci roof to anyone looking to replace their old roof — and I often have! I tell them the initial higher cost is more than worth it when you factor in the durability, worry-free performance and fantastic curb appeal. The beauty and longevity of these synthetic slate shingles make them a great bargain!
