At this year’s International Roofing Expo®, DaVinci Roofscapes®, a leader in the composite roofing industry for the past 20 years, introduced a new line of composite siding. Featuring the appearance of authentic cedar shakes, DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding products are available in eight colors. DaVinci has taken all of its composite roofing manufacturing expertise and created a durable, aesthetically pleasing siding product that will not deteriorate like real wood. Just like DaVinci’s roofing products, the new composite siding shakes resist impact, fire, mold, algae, insects, salt air, and high winds. While they’ll look as attractive as real cedar, they won’t curl, cup, or split like real cedar.
Each tile in the siding line is 18” tall with a 5/8” thickness and comes in 8” or 10” widths. The 10”-wide pieces have a simulated keyway to give the appearance of 4” and 6” width shakes placed together to provide a multi-width appearance. Made to withstand weather conditions on the roof, the DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding tiles are ideal for the exterior walls of a home. Made of virgin resins, UV, and thermal stabilizers, plus a highly specialized fire retardant, the siding is resistant to expansion and contraction that can happen with fluctuating weather conditions and temperatures.
Manufactured at the DaVinci Roofscapes facility in Kansas, the new maintenance-free composite shake siding is made with color throughout each piece and requires no painting. The tiles are recyclable and serve as an environmentally friendly alternative to real wood shakes and plastic siding.
DaVinci has introduced five new colors for the DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding product line: bark, granite, sage, slate blue, and taupe. Three additional color blends from the Nature Crafted Collection will also be available in the siding profiles: aged cedar, black oak, and mossy cedar. DaVinci Hand-Split Shake Siding products are currently undergoing testing and are expected to meet the same testing classifications as with other DaVinci roofing products. The siding product line is backed by a lifetime limited warranty.
