Roofs take a beating. Especially if they’re in coastal regions or storm-prone areas.

When California homeowner Jerry Cochran decided it was time for his new roof, he invested in DaVinci Select Shake composite roofing.

“This roof has everything going for it,” says Cochran. “It’s the best looking roofing material I found in the marketplace.”

With a corner lot less than seven miles from the ocean, Cochran was very particular about the roofing material added to his home.

“I want a beautiful roof to improve my home’s curb appeal. At the same time, I’m looking for durability … a roof that will not leak during our rainy season or deteriorate due to coastal conditions.”

Worry-Free Composite Roofing

Across the country in Minnesota, Kristine Merta’s real cedar roof was destroyed by a wicked hail storm. She went with her roofer’s recommendation of a maintenance-free Select Shake roof.

“The aesthetics are terrific on this roof,” says Merta. “I’m very pleased with this composite roofing. My roofer took a bad situation and turned it into a very positive ending for my home.”

Selecting Select Shake

Created with the authentic look of real cedar shake taken from natural wood profiles, the multi-width Select Shake tiles are 22-inch long and 5/8-inch thick. Available in eight- and 10-inch widths, the larger pieces have a simulated keyway to give the appearance of four and six-inch width shakes placed together.

Select Shake tiles come in eight unique color blends, including Autumn, Chesapeake, Mountain, Tahoe, Weathered Gray, Aged Cedar, Black Oak and Mossy Cedar.

As with all DaVinci composite roofing materials, Select Shake is Class A fire rated and Class 4 impact rated. Each piece resists fading, curling, cracking and cupping. The synthetic shakes also resist salt air and sea spray, rotting and insects, plus algae and moss growth.
