DaVinci Roofscapes, based in Kansas City, Kansas, has been manufacturing award-winning synthetic slate and shake roofing since 1999. DaVinci's revolutionary polymer shingles offer homeowners and contractors the authentic colors and natural textures of quarried slate or rough-hewn cedar shake. They are virtually maintenance free and far more cost effective than the natural product. DaVinci leads the industry in shingle thickness, the widest variety of widths and the greatest variety of subtle earth-tone colors. With state-of-the-art UV stabilizers embedded in the shingle formulation, DaVinci products have inherent superior color fade resistance characteristics. Factory pre-collated blends assure a distinctive look every time, as well as fast, worry free installation, with no special labor, framing or materials required.
We use 100% pure virgin resins in our roof tiles to guarantee a sustainable product. Any materials that fail to meet finished specs are recycled for use in our starter tiles. And of course, every DaVinci tile is 100% recyclable.
DaVinci EcoBlend colors are registered with the Cool Roof Rating Council, and reduce the heat island effect and the temperature of your roof. DaVinci EcoBlend products meet or exceed initial ENERGY STAR(R) program requirements for 25 percent solar reflectivity and qualify for LEED-NC 7.2 Heat Island Effect. Additionally, all DaVinci products are 100% recyclable.
