Alternative to Cedar Shingles

By Seth Weston

New products are constantly emerging across the building industry to offer both contractors and homeowners environmentally friendly and cost effective solutions. Today there are many alternatives to materials that were a standard choices at one point in time, such as natural cedar shingles. Cedar shingles offer both natural beauty and durability, but they come at a high cost. Imagine if you could achieve the same aesthetic and durability, with an environmentally friendly material and lower cost point. With DaVinci Roofscapes, you can do just that.

Modeled after actual slate and hand-split shake, DaVinci products offer a natural beauty and decades of enduring and worry-free performance. We all know the weather and harsh New England environment of sun, wind, sand, and snow takes a toll on our homes and buildings. Traditional red cedar shakes require regular maintenance to prevent mold, mildew, and moss growth. DaVinci Roofscapes take the worry out of shingle maintenance. These durable composite shakes are resistant to mold, mildew, insects, warping, cracking, and curling.

DaVinci Roofscapes provide an alternative to natural cedar shingles without compromising quality, durability, or aesthetics. Available in multiple colors and textures, the composite shakes offer stellar curb appeal and variations to fit any homeowner’s style. The company’s 20 year track record with roofing composites, lifetime warranty, and overall quality make DaVinci Roofscapes an excellent choice for roofing projects.
