When crazy hail pelted Midland, Texas it destroyed more than 14,000 roofs. According to this Interactive Hail Map, the largest hail stones were 2.75 inches across.
“This was a major hail and windstorm,” says Mohan Singh, a Midland area homeowner. “We had more than 100 cracked and broken concrete ‘S’ style roof tiles on our house.”
What's worse, the shingles that Mohan had originally used on his home were discontinued, so he couldn’t easily replace the tiles.
After a lengthy evaluation process, his insurance carrier decided to replace the entire roof. That’s when Singh started thinking about alternative roofing materials.
“The process to get the insurance company to agree to pay for a new roof was more than seven months,” says Singh. “HUF Construction was instrumental in working through that process with them on my behalf. So, when the team at HUF Construction suggested the Bellaforté composite slate roof, I listened.”
What Singh especially liked about the recommended synthetic slate roof from DaVinci Roofscapes was the variety of benefits he’d receive. His new Bellaforté roof resists hail, impact and high winds. It also resists fire, severe weather conditions and pest infestations.
“After 22 years of worrying about the roof overhead, I’m now stress-free,” says Singh. “This roof has brought a spectacular look to my home plus added value.”
To get the curb appeal look he wanted, Singh selected the Sonora color for his new roof. Four different roof colors are blended together to create a stand-out roof: Medium Terracotta, Dark Terracotta, Light Clay and Dark Clay.
“We wanted a color that looks similar to the concrete roof tile originally on our home,” says Singh. “This Sonora color is perfect. It’s added drastically to the curb appeal of our house.
“Hail is a constant worry in this part of the country. The next time a storm comes through it won’t be such a headache for our family. And, we’ll certainly be ready to recommend both the DaVinci products and HUF Construction to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation as we were in. This new composite slate roof has truly enhanced our home’s appearance and durability!”
