DaVinci Roofscapes LLC rolled out its most affordable shake in a range of colors once offered only as an option as company officials see new opportunities related to the product's weather and fire resistance.
Called the Nature Crafted Collection, the colors were introduced in a limited basis on the Bellaforté brand of shake last year.
The Lenexa, Kan.-based company timed its national rollout of the colors for the virtual International Builders' Show (IBS X) held Feb. 9-12 and organized by the National Association of Home Builders.
Bellaforté now comes in colors called Black Oak for a look of natural cedar shingles saturated with moisture and mold, Aged Cedar with a reddish tone and Mossy Cedar, which has a damp, greenish character.
"This now completes all of our composite shake product lines offering these beautiful colors. The incredibly natural look of the colors surpasses any other composite shakes available in the marketplace," Wendy Bruch, marketing manager at DaVinci Roofscapes, said in an email.
All DaVinci composite slate and shake products are made with polyethylene, stabilizers for ultraviolet and thermal protection and a "highly specialized" fire retardant, she added.
