Of the few surviving older homes in Atlantic City, New Jersey is the home of Adam Lavinsky, Linda Lavinsky and Adria and Mark Fishkin. Their house is about 100 feet from the beach, with an ocean view . The slate tiles on their seaside home are original—built in 1906 original—making the Lavinsky’s and Fishkin’s real slate roof over 100 years old. But not even natural slate can last forever, so when it came time to replace the roof, the families had a huge task ahead of them to find a comparable material.
“The tiles were in decent shape, but had been patched over the years,” says Adam Lavinsky. “Above all, the nails were failing. That means many tiles were falling off, and that’s a dangerous situation.”
To protect the structure of the house and reduce safety risks, the homeowners decided it was time to replace the tiles. But they really like the natural slate look. The solution? Single-width composite slate tiles from DaVinci Roofscapes.
“After thorough research, it was abundantly clear that DaVinci was the choice for us,” says Lavinsky. “We considered everything from potential damage from salt air and sea spray to sun fade. After that, of course, we considered the pounding storms we get on the coastline. The DaVinci product checked off all the boxes.”
Made of pure virgin resins, UV and thermal stabilizers, as well as a highly-specialized fire retardant, the state-of-the-art DaVinci tile endures beautifully in any climate. Especially in coastal communities.
Constructed to withstand strong winds up to 110 mph, DaVinci tiles resist fading in the sun. They also resist salt air, sea spray, insects, splitting, chipping, algae growth and mold.
Most impressively, DaVinci composite slate tiles are Class 4 rated for impact. In addition, they have a Class A fire rating. These highest industry ratings mean the Atlantic City roof will confidently stand up to Mother Nature for decades. As an added bonus, there will be minimal maintenance.
To tackle the installation of the DaVinci Single-Width Slate roof in a Brownstone color, the homeowners brought in Only the Best Builder.
“I cannot say enough about this company,” says Linda Lavinsky. “Dean and Dave were professional, thorough and possess an extreme level of attention to detail. They respected our home and the property of our neighbors. Most importantly, they did a sensational job installing the composite slate roofing!”
With the job finished, the Lavinsky and Fishkin home now receives compliments from neighbors and friends.
“This composite slate roof has restored elegance to our home,” says Lavinsky. “The natural-looking DaVinci slate enhances the architectural intent of one of our home’s most prominent features.
“We absolutely love our new roof. We’d recommend both Only the Best Builder and DaVinci roofing products to any homeowner!”
