California living can be great. However, it can also be tough on roofs. Intense sun, salt air, high winds and constant concerns of wildfire spread cause roofing headaches for many homeowners.
Jack Martin understands. For 37 years his company, Action Roofing, has dealt with roof replacements. During the past decade, he’s recommended DaVinci Roofscapes products to many homeowners (like Dr. Laura Schlessinger), bringing them peace of mind and value.
“The DaVinci synthetic slate and shake products are a good investment for homeowners,” says Martin, president of Action Roofing, based out of Santa Barbara. “These roofs are Class A fire and Class 4 impact resistant. They resist high winds, severe weather conditions and salt air/sea spray. Plus there’s no cracking, curling or splitting of their tiles. With their Lifetime Limited Materials Warranty, that’s a product we fully support.”
Province Slate Introduction
There’s a new synthetic slate product in the DaVinci family that Martin and Action Roofing also endorses — Province Slate.
A 12-inch wide tile with a fixed 8-inch exposure, the latest DaVinci composite roof product evokes a historical nature with authentic traditional slate appeal. Available in six colors, the composite tiles have a non-repeating beauty that complements a variety of home styles.
“I believe the exposure and thickness of the Province Slate is impressive,” says Martin. “The cost is also fair. I anticipate installing Province Slate a great deal in the coming year as people see this new product. It’s going to be a winner.”
Composite Slate Solution
Martin’s first Province Slate project has already taken place. His team replaced the cracked, leaky tiles on a home in the Santa Barbara area. When the homeowner was presented with several replacement options, he chose Province Slate.
“The cost effectiveness and overall appearance of the Province Slate easily won over this homeowner,” says Martin with Action Roofing. “The Spanish Traditional style of the home looks really good with the new gray synthetic slate roof. It’s a significant upgrade to what was on the roof previously.”
The homeowner agrees. “I trusted Jack with his recommendation of the DaVinci product and I couldn’t be happier,” says Pierce B. “The Province Slate has added to the curb appeal of my home. In addition, I feel good about the reliability of the product. This investment has eliminated a deferred maintenance liability that I had with the old, cracking roof.
“This experience has been like hitting the jackpot. Action Roofing did an excellent job on the roof installation. Above all, Jack’s recommendation of the Province Slate was a cost effective and beautiful solution to our roofing problem.”
