Davinci Slate Roofing
Builders in the northeast historically chose a natural slate roof for early American homes, including Gothic Revival, Victorian, and Second Empire-style houses. The color of the natural slate roof depended on what was available from the local quarry, but purples, greens, red, blue, and black were common.
For years, homeowners have loved these classic roofs for their unique, textured appearance and natural fire and water resistance. However, a natural slate roof can be as heavy as 800lbs per square foot! Is your home capable of supporting that kind of weight?
A natural slate roof can also become brittle over time, which causes chipping and cracking, especially if someone walks across the panels on the roof or a hail storm hits the house.Before installing a DaVinci roof at your Long Island home, browse the many colors that used to only be available regionally—50 shades in total!
