The Hochmans, who live in a lakefront home, chose to replace their failing fiber cement slate roof with low-maintenance composite slate roofing from DaVinci Roofscapes. They wanted a high-performing roof that would have a long lifespan and minimal maintenance, and after doing research, they opted for DaVinci’s products, which are Class A fire rated and Class 4 impact rated. They chose the DaVinci Multi-Width Slate in a Slate Black color for the roof, which the installation presented as a challenge for the contractor. In addition, the home’s boathouse roof was a particularly challenging aspect of the job as the team had to create a floating platform to hold their ladders due to the absence of sound footing.
A DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor for many years, Askari has successfully installed hundreds of DaVinci composite roofs. He’s seen them withstand both normal Texas weather and severe storms.
While the house itself is a dream roofing job, there is another element that makes this low-maintenance composite slate project even more special: A boathouse that sits right on Lake Travis.
