DaVinci Select Shake Roofing Shakes Up Roofing Industry

Jan 16, 2020 - LENEXA, KAN


The recently-introduced fourth shake profile in the shake roofing product offering from DaVinci Roofscapes® has quickly become a favorite with homeowners. DaVinci Select Shake features multi-width tiles with the authentic look of real cedar shake taken from natural wood profiles.


Available in eight- and 10-inch widths, each DaVinci Select Shake tile is 22-inches long and has a 5/8-inch thickness. The 10-inch wide pieces have a simulated keyway to give the appearance of four- and six-inch width shakes placed together. The unique tile design of DaVinci Select Shake allows for faster installation than previous DaVinci single- and multi-width products.


“If someone is searching for a multi-width shake tile with a truly authentic and traditional shake profile, we recommend the DaVinci Select Shake product,” says Wendy Bruch with DaVinci Roofscapes.


“DaVinci Select Shake results from our desire to constantly ‘make a good thing better.’ We’re excited to provide visual versatility to meet aesthetic vision and budget.”


Ready to Stand Up to Hail Storms

Homeowner Mike Goldstein was one of the first to get Select Shake roofing on his Omaha home. After installing a real shake roof in 1996, the shingles were fading, cracking and had moss growing on them. A bad hail storm in 2019 was the last straw. Goldstein decided to invest in Select Shake roofing.


“The new composite shake looks very realistic,” says Goldstein. “Just like when we first had the real cedar shakes installed. Some of the homes in our neighborhood still have real shake shingles. Those homes simply look messy. We’re absolutely thrilled with how the new composite shakes have given our home a new, improved look.”


Select Shake on 125-Year Old Home

Visiting Clermont Historic Village Museum takes you back in time to the late 1800s in Clermont, Florida. Buildings are constructed out of their original heart pine wood. But, you’ll also find a state-of-the-art Select Shake roof on one structure.


“The Townsend home was the first home moved to our village,” Jim Briggs, president of Clermont Historical Society. “We restored it to a presentable condition. However, over the years the roof has become a major problem.


“The City of Clermont is responsible for the outside maintenance of buildings in our village. They researched roofing options and shared their thoughts with us. We all agreed that the Select Shakes in an Aged Cedar color from DaVinci Roofscapes are the best solution. They maintain the original look of the roof, plus we know they’ll have a long lifespan.


“All of our visitors love the look of the roof. Many people think they’re the original style wood shakes. We know better. We have the comfort of knowing they’ll endure through hurricane conditions year-after-year. And, we also know this roof is resilient enough to stand for many years after we’re gone.”


Authentic Shake Appearance

The DaVinci Select Shake product line comes in eight color blends, including Autumn, Chesapeake, Mountain, Tahoe and Weathered Gray. The additional three color blends come from the Nature Crafted Collection and include Aged Cedar, Black Oak and Mossy Cedar. The Nature Crafted Collection colors reflect different progressive aging processes found on real shake shingles. These colors recreate the natural warmth and softness of a patina previously only created by time and exposure to the elements.


DaVinci Select Shake products meet the same testing classifications as with other DaVinci roofing products. The tiles are backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty and resist fading, rotting, cracking and insects.


With the addition of the DaVinci Select Shake product line, DaVinci offers four composite shake tile options: DaVinci Multi-Width Shake, DaVinci Single-Width Shake, Bellaforté Shake and DaVinci Select Shake.
