Jim embarked on a major renovation to his newly purchased home. He decided he wanted a very special roof. He liked the look of Cedar Shake but not the ongoing maintenance issues and costs. He began evaluating synthetic composite materials that provided the cedar shake look but were true lifetime shingles with zero maintenance. After looking at DaVinci and Ecoshake, Jim decided on the Brava Shake product.
Jim contacted Brava Tile to request samples of the Brava Shake and to inquire about a top Roofing Contractor in the Raleigh area that was experienced with the Brava Product. Brava recommended Authentic Restoration, their Pro Contractor for North Carolina. Authentic Restoration Representative, Chad Williamson, met with Jim multiple times to review needs, options and scheduling. A contract was signed in May with a target install date of the week following the July 4 holiday.
Let’s Take a Closer Look
A great deal of planning went into this Brava Shake install to insure everything would go smoothly. The Brava materials were ordered along with other accessories that Jim specifically wanted. Other items such as the dumpster were ordered and the crew was scheduled. Everything started on Monday July 9.
The existing roof was removed down to the bare decking. 5 rotten pieces of decking had to be replaced. Ice & Water shield were installed on the entire roof to insure a 100% leak proof roof for Jim.
An Authentic Restoration Project Manager was onsite for the entire installation instructing the crew and insuring every detail was constructed perfectly.
56 Squares of Brava Slate were installed, the roof was completed by the end of the day Thursday. Consistent with all Authentic Restoration roof replacements, the yard was meticulously cleaned using magnetic rakes to pick up all the nails and metal debris. Neighbors were stopping by during the roof construction expressing their interest and pleasure at the beauty of the Brava Shake roof product. This was the first Brava Shake roof installed in Raleigh, NC but surely won’t be the last. Jim was ecstatic with his new Brava Shake roof and the work provided by Authentic Restoration Raleigh.
