DaVinci’s synthetic shake and slate withstands elements better than natural materials

Let’s start by discussing the downsides of using natural cedar and slate for roofing. While these materials may appear attractive initially, cedar is prone to rot, mold, and insect infestations, which can lead to costly repairs and a shorter life span. Moreover, cedar demands regular upkeep to sustain its aesthetic appeal and durability. On the other hand, natural slate is heavy, is challenging to install, and often comes with a high price tag. Furthermore, both materials are less energy-efficient than synthetic options, which can result in higher energy bills over time.

One of the significant advantages of DaVinci’s synthetic shake and slate products is their ability to withstand the elements far better than their natural counterparts. It’s worth noting that insurance companies often offer reduced rates when homeowners switch from natural cedar or slate to DaVinci’s synthetic alternatives. These roofing materials are Class 4 impact rated, Class A fire rated, and certified to withstand 110 mph winds. In addition, they reflect sunlight and heat away from the home, increasing energy-efficiency. Because DaVinci tiles are made of resins fortified with UV stabilizers, ensuring color control and consistency, this helps maintain color over time.

DaVinci shake and slate options

Let’s talk about DaVinci’s shake and slate options. The shake product line, designed to resemble cedar, includes Multi-Width, Single-Width, Select, and Bellaforté options. The slate line, engineered to mimic the appearance of natural slate, features Multi-Width, Single-Width, Province, and Inspire options. These diverse offerings cater to various aesthetic preferences and functional requirements, ensuring that homeowners can find the perfect roofing solution to enhance their home’s beauty and resilience. With such an extensive range of styles, DaVinci Roofscapes guarantees a high-quality, visually appealing, and long-lasting roofing option for any home.Copper Alpine snowguards on DaVinci slate roof in North Stamford, CT
