The Impressive Durability of Composite Roofing

Learn why these contractors can’t stop raving about this long-lasting composite material. 

Contractors Scott Kim from WGM Contracting and Chad Janisch from the Shake Guys want other roofing companies to know all about the benefits of using composite roofing materials. Molded from actual slate and shake profiles, composite roofing material from DaVinci Roofscapes is made from high-density polymers. While a lot of manufacturers make their composite roofing products out of recycled materials, DaVinci makes theirs out of a virgin resin. 

Jeff Karo, DaVinci regional sales manager, stated in this Read Listen Watch that by making their composite products out of virgin resin, it makes the product more durable and easier to install. “With the virgin resin, you're getting the highest quality, the purest out there,” he said. “With the recycled (resin), the big issue is the consistency. You don't know what that resin was prior to it being in this final product.” 

DaVinci’s composite roofing products are heavily tested for quality assurance and engineered for maximum efficiency. One of the great features that the contractors love is the design of the tile. DaVinci tiles are engineered with a waffle backing that makes them lighter and more flexible. It also has a limit on how much it can expand and contract. 

Contractor Chad Janisch from the Chicago-based Shake Guys says he often finds himself installing roofs in extreme weather conditions. He states that when installing other types of shakes, “if you install them correctly and the keyways are too tight, contraction expansion will start to buckle...with DaVinci, you don't have that issue.” 

Scott Kim from WGM Contracting says that when he inspects roofs that are installed with DaVinci products, he’s often amazed at how great the tiles holds up. He also said that his crew members give him positive feedback on the product too. “They tell me that it feels different. Although it's lighter, because of the thickness and density of the material, they say it feels really tough.”
