Davinci Roofscapes is a manufacturer of composite roofing shingles that look like real shake or real slate. The look is high end and you will see it installed on some of Denver’s “Estate” type homes. But you will also see it installed on homes of more modest size or even multi-family buildings as well. The product is actually really beautiful and comes with many benefits for a long term roofing solution in Colorado.
As we all know, we get hail. We get hail every year. Hail kills a lot of roofs in Colorado. Asphalt shingles don’t deal with hail very well – but we keep re-covering our roofs with it because it’s cheap. Insurance companies keep paying for it – though they keep increasing the deductible. Many homeowners are looking into solutions that might get ahead of the hail cycle of violence. Products like Davinci Roofscapes offer Denver homeowners an option that is “Hail Resistant” – rated Class 4 shingles for impact resistance. This rating means the product can withstand moderate hail – much better than standard asphalt shingles. It is NOT hail proof, however.
Davinci Roofscapes is a really strong contender for those researching a hail resistant roofing solution. New Roof Plus can help you with your research. We install a lot of different products based on the need, the budget, the architectural style, and more considerations.
Composite shingles are made of plastic as the base material. The technology behind a plastic shingle has improved dramatically over recent years. Fading issues of the past are resolved. Warranty options are very compelling. And they are offering the product in more color options to match various design requirements.

Denver homeowners experience hail almost every year. After a significant hail storm hits their home they need to decide what they are going to do about replacing their roof. If insurance agrees to pay for a new one, the choices are
Do I go with the same roof material and just pay the deductible?
Do I upgrade to a hail resistant roofing product and pay extra?
Do I go for a long term solution and search for the strongest roofing system out there?
When the home or building owner is researching hail resistant roofing products, they will likely find Decra Stone Coated Steel Roofing near the top of the list. Decra is a well-known and established roofing manufacturer. They are the leader in Stone Coated Steel roofing. Stone coated steel is a unique combination of manufactured steel panels shaped to look like shake roof tiles or slate roof tiles. Then they are then coated with a fine layer of crushed stone and an adhesive. The stone can be colored to give it a decorative finish.
The process of “Stone coating” steel was developed around the World War two era. It was designed to inhibit rust from forming on steel. It also turned out to be good camouflage so it served two important purposes during this time frame. Since then the process has been refined and improved.
Denver’s dry climate is good for this type of material. We don’t get a lot of rust problems. Our dry climate is not good for cedar shake. Real shake dries out too fast. Stone-coated steel can give you the look of a shake roof without the problems.
DECRA stone coated steel can dramatically enhance the look of a home. It is a long term solution that does well in most hail storms. It is not hail proof but it comes close. Stone-coated steel can give you a sophisticated high-end look to your home.
