Hail-Damaged Buildings Get New Composite Slate Roofs

In the summer of 2018, chunks of hail rained down on Colorado Springs. People watched in disbelief as their homes, cars and landscaping were completely destroyed. “Baseball-sized hail came down for 20 minutes straight,” says Mike Wilhelm, president of Holladay Grace Roofing. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Wilhelm and his team were brought in to handle the restoration efforts on the 32 buildings within the Enclave at Broadmoor Glen Homeowners Association (HOA). The exterior on the duplexes and quadplexes in the Colorado Springs community were completely destroyed. Windows, garage doors, fences and landscaping needed repair. But, the first priority was replacing the damaged concrete roofs.

Condos Seek Out Composite Roofing

The team at Holladay Grace Roofing started by tearing off the old roofs. Then they immediately installed new DaVinci composite slate roofing. The entire project was completed in just three months.

“We’ve worked extensively with DaVinci products in the past,” says Wilhelm. “This community was looking to replace their broken concrete tiles with something that would stand up to Colorado hail better. After learning about various roofing systems and products, the Board of Directors of the HOA chose Bellaforté Slate.

“This community now stands out to others in the area. I believe you’ll see more associations investing in composite roofing in the future to enhance the security of their structures plus increase the curb appeal of their homes.”

Worry-Free Roofing

Designed to resist hail, fire, high winds and severe weather, Bellaforté Slate is a winner for a homeowners association like the Enclave at Broadmoor Glen. The 76 individual homeowners within the association now have peace of mind. As a result of their new composite roofing selection, they don’t have to worry about the next baseball-sized hail (or regular-sized, for that matter) storm. Or wildfire spreads that may cause sparks to land on their roofs.

Bellaforté is DaVinci’s most affordable product line. It has been designed to reduce material costs while providing long-term durability. Bellaforté Slate tiles provide premium aesthetics and performance that asphalt shingles can only dream about. And, each Bellaforté Shake tile features staggered edges, color variations and dramatic shadows that contribute to a truly realistic appearance.

When it comes to a reasonably-priced, top-quality product that resists hail, impact, decay and fire, Bellaforté has made a name for itself in the roofing industry.

Bellaforté Shake and Slate composite roofing tiles are priced to compete with alternative roofing products. However, their appearance, features and benefits far exceed those of competitors such as stone-coated steel, real wood and high-end asphalt shingles.
