Tiles resemble cedar shake

DaVinci Roofscapes® has introduced its line of multiwidth Bellaforté Shake polymer roofing tiles. The 12-inch tiles are available in eight profiles that resemble cedar shakes. They feature snap-fit tabs for easy installation and self-alignment and include an integrated rain gutter, leading edge tab and rain dam.

A square of Bellaforté Shake tiles weighs 190 pounds. The lower tile weight reportedly helps reduce installation time and landfill load because of decreased construction waste. The tiles also are 100 percent recyclable. The tile line includes 49 colors and a selection of five color blends, including abruzzo, espresso, harbor gray, tuscano and verona. The tiles also are available in DaVinci Roofscapes' EcoBlend® gray colors, which have been rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council.
