DaVinci synthetic shingles have become the standard for synthetic roofs across the US. The reasons are many. DaVinci shingles have been installed for over 20 years. Their proprietary polymer formulation has proven to be extraordinarily tough and weather resistant. In addition, DaVinci produces 4 separate products in realistic slate and shake profiles. DaVinci products are used in all climate zones, including those areas where accumulating snow falls.
When replacing natural shakes in areas where accumulating snow falls, owners should be aware that snow will slide on synthetic roofing materials much like snow slides on metal roofs. Depending on the situation, having snow slide off the roof can be a good thing. Ice dams won't build up if the snow has slid off the roof. There is less stress on the structure if the snow doesn't accumulate over the course of a winter. However, there may be roof areas where snow needs to be held in place. Such as roofs that shed onto walkways, decks, driveways, etc. Basically, roofs that will shed snow onto people or property that can be damaged.
