The Mountain Blend color pattern accurately represents the period and the style of the original roof.
In Durango, Colo., the milled wood roof shingles on the historic 1880s Peterson House were so worn by time and weather that they had simply crumbled apart. As part of ongoing restoration efforts of the historic structure in 2011, the team at Animas Museum turned to experts at DaVinci Roofscapes to provide a composite roof that would replicate the look of the original roof.
“The mission at our museum is to keep La Plata County history and culture alive for present and future generations,” says Carolyn Bowra, director of Animas Museum. “DaVinci has certainly supported this effort and made it possible for the Peterson House to have a new life.
“We love the new composite shake roof in the Mountain blend color because it is ‘spot on’ for the period and the building. Our insurance agent is thrilled with the safety aspects and the fact that the polymer roofing tiles have a Class A fire rating. We’re so pleased with this DaVinci roof that we’re hoping that, as other roofs in our complex become in need of restoration, that we’ll be able to install these same polymer tiles.”
