Realistic Composite Cedar Crowns 2022 Southeastern Designer Showhouse

The tranquil Kingswood neighborhood in Atlanta is the ideal setting for the 2022 Southeastern Designer Showhouse. Nestled in the Buckhead community, the beautiful 9,300-square-foot home sparkles with an elegant navy blue and white exterior. Topping it off is DaVinci Select Shake roof in Black Oak that fits perfectly in the tree-laden location.

The entire exterior of the home, from the composite roof down to the cedar brackets, was installed by Renewal Roofing. Newly constructed for the show home by Evercraft LLC, the elegant project was featured in the September 2022 issue of Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles magazine.

Show Home Quality

According to Will Boyd, owner of Renewal Roofing, quality and timeliness are of utmost importance when working on a show home project.

“Every aspect of this project was challenging,” says Boyd. “You’re constantly being analyzed from every direction. The builders went down the path of composite options early on. I was fortunate to help steer them towards the best roofing composite in the industry. I simply knew that the Select Shake product was the best choice for this roof.”

The impact- and fire-resistant Select Shake product adds beauty and value to homes. The 5/8-inch thick traditional shake profiles come in 11 color blends and create a finished multi-width look. Ideal for high humidity, severe weather and fire zone areas, Select Shake captures the authentic look of real cedar shake. The realistic composite cedar tiles resist fading, rotting, cracks and insects. Therefore, it’s ideal for the Atlanta location of the show house. The tiles will also not split or curl, and are backed by a Lifetime Limited Materials Warranty.

The realistic composite cedar in the Black Oak color chosen for the home tells the story of dark, aged cedar. It fits in perfectly with the natural setting of Castlegate Drive. The color recreates the mature, almost black bark coloring that some people crave for their roof. In this case, the color looks especially natural with the stark white trim on the house.

This realistic composite cedar roof in the Black Oak color beautifully contrasts the white trim on the home. “Fortunately for us, DaVinci makes a product that’s perfect for just about any home,” says Boyd. “This year we’ve installed composite slate on a historical home and new mansions in north Atlanta horse country. In addition, we’ve installed DaVinci shakes on two Southeastern Designer Showhouses, and even on a boathouse!”

Driving Toward Success

For this tucked-in-the-woods show home that resembles a New England shingle-style house, Renewal Roofing handled every phased of the exterior. They installed cedar shake siding, TPO roof, standing seam metal roofing, gutters, metal coping and several custom elements.

“This project highlights our unique skills as a company,” says Boyd. “I’m proud of those skills, and of the products I recommend.

“Properly installed, this Select Shake roof can last three or four times longer than traditional roofing products. Their weather resistance is amazing. It’s like getting a new car that you simply can’t dent or scratch. I LOVE that aspect!”
