Shedding Light on Shed Roofs

Feeling handy this summer? Then you might want to check out the story on-line from Handy magazine entitled "Build This Modular Shed."

Cedar ShakeLast summer skilled handyman Spike Carlsen decided to build an outdoor shed … not from a kit, but from scratch. His resulting step-by-step construction project is outlined in the magazine's on-line story (click HERE to view).

In our opinion, one of the smartest moves Spike made was to install composite shake Bellaforté roofing tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes to top off his new shed. As he mentions in the story, the reason he selected he selected the synthetic cedar shake from DaVinci was because of their appearance and durability. We couldn't agree more!

Along with bringing a natural hand-split cedar shake look to the polymer roof tiles, Bellaforté is easy to install. A leading edge tab secures every tile to drastically improve wind performance plus the snap-fit tile creates a built-in rain gutter.

Available in 12" tile widths with multiple profiles to simulate a multi-width, staggered rough hewn wood shake, Bellaforté Shake offer impact resistance, a Class A Fire Rating and resistance to insects — features even a small shed roof project can appreciate!
