From the Architect’s Corner – DaVinci Shake Paired with a Flat Roof
We don’t (typically) get a lot of interest on behalf of homes or buildings with flat roofs. Makes sense, as we manufacture a steep slope roofing product. Sometimes DaVinci Slate or Shake roof tiles can still be installed on overhangs which accent the building. We see this often with commercial buildings or strip malls, and DaVinci polymer roof tiles cap many projects like that. What we don’t see as often is a flat roof with overhangs on a residential project. The project below, installed in Oklahoma, has our composite shake roof tiles as accents on this home. So architects, something to consider the next time your design incorporates something like this. Our products all come with a Class A Fire Rating, Class 4 Impact Rating, 110 mph wind certification and are a 50 year roof. Not to mention that they look great, and can compliment these types of projects in a very natural way.
Happy Friday, Architects!
