Imagine a rainbow on a roof. That’s what the Pavan family has on their beautiful house. The stunning Vineyard blend of Dark and Medium Tan, Light and Medium Gray, Dark Stone, Light and Dark Violet and Dark Amber all combine to create a colorful synthetic slate topping on their lakefront home.
When their real slate roof began chipping and pieces started falling off, the Pavans knew they had a problem. The roof pieces littered their driveway and balconies. Plus, the empty gaps left ugly spaces on their roof.
“We’d been chatting with Nino Pavan since 2013,” says Barbie Copp with Copp Roofing & Construction, Inc. out of Blue Jay, California. “It was obvious the real slate roof would not hold up in this mountain environment. When he was ready, we talked to him about DaVinci Roofscapes products.”
Advantages of Composite Slate
To provide the Pavans with the slate look they liked so much, the team at Copp Roofing recommended a DaVinci Multi-Width Slate product. Engineered to be lighter than real slate, the composite slate is made of virgin resins, UV and thermal stabilizers, along with a highly specialized fire retardant.
Class A fire and Class 4 impact rated, the DaVinci product offers high performance. Modeled from actual slate for natural, non-repeating beauty, the composite slate brings authentic appeal to the roof. Despite being located next to Lake Arrowhead, the synthetic slate roof resists algae and moss growth, insects and termites. It also resists rotting, cracking, chipping and breaking.
Backed by a Lifetime Limited Material Warranty, DaVinci Multi-Width Slate performs beautifully in severe weather conditions. For peace of mind for the Pavans, the product is also WUI 4175 certified.
A Homeowner’s Perspective
As the colorful synthetic slate roof took shape, the homeowners watched the transformation take place.
“I have high standards when it comes to companies performing services at my property,” says Nino Pavan. “Copp Roofing met those standards throughout the entire roofing process.
“When you’re investing in a new roof, you get what you pay for. Copp Roofing isn’t the cheapest option. But for us, they were a very good investment. They provided us with excellent service with great attention to detail. Plus, they were in constant communication with us every step of the project. This really kept us in the loop.”
A Roofer’s Perspective
Working on the Pavan home brought more than just a little satisfaction to the Copp Roofing team.
“We install up to 15 DaVinci roofs a year,” says Bruce Wolverton with Copp Roofing. “Working on the Pavan house was special because it’s a unique roof. We were able to install the DaVinci product that truly resembles the real slate that was originally on the home. Also, the location of the home being right on the lake makes the colors of this project stand out.
“Our finished DaVinci projects always look good. However, when you install a roof with all the colors of the Vineyard blend, it just jumps out as something very special. The finished product makes us proud.”

The superior work done on this re-roofing project earned it the designation of a DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor 2022 Project of the Year. Just seven projects nationwide were awarded this honor.
