Before digging deeper into the wonders of Brava and DaVinci, it’s essential to understand why composite and synthetic roofing materials have been gaining popularity in the market. Homeowners today are increasingly looking for innovative solutions that offer durability, style, and environmental sustainability.

What Are Composite And Synthetic Roofing Materials?

Composite roofing materials are made from various elements, including plastics, fiberglass, and recycled materials. On the other hand, synthetic roofing materials, often used interchangeably with composite, typically refer to products manufactured to mimic traditional roofing materials like wood or slate but offer superior durability and sustainability.

Composite And Synthetic Roofing Vs. Traditional Roofing

Although traditional roofing materials such as asphalt, wood, or slate have their unique benefits, the advent of composite and synthetic roofing has shifted the dynamics in the roofing industry. The following sections will extensively discuss the advantages of hybrid and synthetic materials over their traditional counterparts.

Durability And Longevity

One of the most significant advantages of composite and synthetic roofing materials is their exceptional durability and longevity. Unlike traditional materials, which may degrade over time due to weather conditions, blended and synthetic materials are designed to withstand the test of time.


Composite and synthetic materials offer a wide array of styles and colors, providing more flexibility in design than traditional roofing materials.


Low maintenance is another substantial benefit. Composite and synthetic materials resist mold, mildew, and algae growth, eliminating the frequent cleaning required by traditional materials.

Environmentally Friendly

Composite and synthetic materials often contain recycled content. They are recyclable, making them a more environmentally friendly choice for your roof.

The Installation Process Of Brava Roof Tile And DaVinci Roofscapes

You’re not just purchasing a product when you opt for Brava Roof Tile or DaVinci Roofscapes. You’re investing in a process that transforms your home with a durable, aesthetically pleasing, and environmentally friendly roofing solution. Here’s what you can expect:


Before the installation begins, a thorough inspection of your existing room is conducted to assess its condition. This inspection enables the team to understand the specifics of your roof, determine the appropriate roofing solution, and plan the installation process.

Next, a detailed proposal, including cost estimates and timeframes, will be provided. After finalizing the details, the chosen roofing materials will be ordered. Remember, patience is vital at this stage, as some products may require a lead time for manufacturing and delivery due to their unique customization.

Removal Of Old Roofing

The actual installation day kicks off with the removal of your old roofing material. The team will take the utmost care to ensure that your property is protected from debris and potential damage. This is also where any underlying injury or issue, such as rot or structural damage, will be identified and addressed.


With a clean and prepared roof deck, the installation process begins. Brava and DaVinci products are installed similarly to their traditional counterparts (cedar shake, slate, etc.), so experienced roofers will be familiar with the process.

Starting from the bottom edge of your roof, the composite tiles will be installed row by row, secured with roofing nails. The team will also install flashings (thin pieces of impervious material) to prevent water intrusion in areas such as chimneys and walls.

Finishing Touches

Once the tiles have been installed, the team will handle finishing aspects, such as the installation of ridge caps. These caps provide a complete look and help prevent water intrusion at the roof’s peak.

Clean-Up And Final Inspection

Post-installation, a thorough clean-up will be carried out to ensure your property is left in its original state. Lastly, a final inspection will ensure the installation meets the highest standards.

Open communication will be maintained throughout the process, keeping you updated about the progress. With companies like Greater Midwest Exteriors, you can expect professionalism, commitment, and a focus on customer satisfaction, making your journey towards a new roof as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
