Then, follow this step-by-step guide (or get professional help) to start your own DaVinci roof installation right away.
Step One: Deciding on Your DaVinci Roofing Materials 🤔
DaVinci Roofscapes is one of the leading manufacturers in the roofing industry, offering a range of roofing tiles and shingles that mimic natural cedar and slate but are much more cost-effective for many homeowners. As you might expect from one of the top roofing manufacturers, DaVinci offers an impressive range of roofing products, so step one is to take your pick.
DaVinci Slate Roof Tiles
Real slate roof replacement projects can cost an arm and a leg, and the installation is incredibly lengthy. Instead of real slate, you can install DaVinci slate tiles, which are meant to look like real slate without the heavy weight and high price tag. Your options include:
- Single-width slate tiles
- Multi-width tiles
- Province slate tiles
- Inspire slate tiles
- Bellaforté model slate
DaVinci Shake Shingles
For those who prefer the look of cedar shakes and cedar shake shingles, there are also several options:
- Single-width shake
- Multi-width shake
- Select shake
- Bellaforté shake roofing
Step Two: Getting DaVinci Roofing Products Delivered 📦
After you and your contractor choose the DaVinci system you want to be installed, an order will be placed by your roofing company. Typically, the composite roofing materials are delivered directly to the job site in bundles sorted by size and color. This allows for fast, hassle-free handling and installation.
Step Three: Preparing for Your Roof Replacement 🧰
After choosing which DaVinci composite roofing system suits your personal style and budget best, and once your roofing materials have been delivered, it’s time to move on to the actual installation.
However, you’ll have to gather some essential tools and safety equipment first to ensure everything goes safely and smoothly since roofing can be a seriously dangerous job. That includes items like:
- Roofing nailer + nails
- Tool belt
- Circular saw
- Utility knife + hook blade
- Roof rake or shovel
- Pry bar
- Safety harness
- Rubber sole shoes
- Work gloves
With these vital tools gathered together, you can move on to your DaVinci roof installation.
Step Four: Installing Your New Roof 🛠
The easiest way for both professional roofers and DIY-ers to get the proper steps to install DaVinci roof tiles is directly through DaVinci Roofscapes itself. Their website provides in-depth installation guides that give you a detailed look at everything required to complete your roof replacement.
And if that isn’t good enough, you can also get these guides in other languages, including Spanish and French (Quebec). You’ll also find a couple of other hidden gems online to help with your DaVinci roofing installation, including:
- Cold weather installation instructions (DaVinci roofs can be installed in as low as 20º F temperatures)
- Steps for installation in high winds
- Top DaVinci install tips
- Virtual waste calculators
- Guides for retrofitting snow guards
- Roof replacement FAQs
- Warranty Information (material backed by a limited lifetime warranty)
- And other great resources straight from DaVinci Roofscapes
Read through these helpful installation guides from DaVinci before attempting to install the roofing tiles. For professional roofers, this part should be a breeze (and why we say leave these projects to the pros).
Step Five: Cleaning Up Your Property 🧹
Once your roof replacement is complete, you can clean up your property and bask in the glory of your solidly protected home. With the help of DaVinci’s online waste calculator, you can discern whether or not to get a roll-off dumpster or if borrowing your brother-in-law’s pickup truck will do.
Professional roofers will also have plenty of projects under their belts, so they’ll also be able to help estimate how much waste will be made thanks to their experience.
After everything’s said and done and your property’s all clear, you can enjoy your new DaVinci roof replacement for years to come and consider other DaVinci products for your future home improvement projects.
Step Six: Exploring Everything Else DaVinci Roofscapes Offers 👀
In addition to an impressive range of shake and slate roofing systems, DaVinci Roofscapes also offers high-quality siding materials that homeowners love. If you’re a contractor, talk with your representative from DaVinci roofs to see if carrying siding is something that makes sense for your company.
Homeowners can also inquire with their general contractor to find out if DaVinci siding is something offered that they can take advantage of.
Why Go With DaVinci?

These affordable and attractive systems are the perfect composite roofing material to mimic the more expensive roofs you really want.
Even though DaVinci tiles aren’t the real deal like those swanky slate roofs seen on multi-million dollar homes, you won’t have to compromise on style or quality with DaVinci roof tiles since they’re still incredibly durable, versatile, and look great. Plus, DaVinci products have a pretty impressive lifespan, despite the lower price point.
