5 Tips from a Roofing Expert

DaVinci Tips from a Roofing Expert
April 2, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

By DaVinci Roofscapes.

Looking for expert roofing tips? Look no further than roofing expert Eric Salvesen.

Eric is the technical services manager for DaVinci Roofscapes. He gives his best every day at the job site assisting roofers or leading hands-on training with DaVinci composite roofing products. He understands roofs like the back of his hand. And, when he isn’t on a roof, he is on his way to the next roofing project. 

All these roofing experiences mean that Eric is “the guy” for roofing tips. Here are his top five: 

Tip 1 – Save cut pieces to use on different areas of the roof. Pay special attention to where you can use cut pieces (as opposed to discarding them) and you can save 3% or more on job-site waste. 

Tip 2 – Invest in an upgraded fastener. Ring shank stainless steel works really great. If you’re using screws, they must be non-corrosive 5/16″ pancake head type screws. Any fastener must penetrate all the way through the deck at least 3/16″. 

Tip 3 – For every 100 feet of valley, figure an extra square of lightweight roofing materials. 

Tip 4 – Factor in roughly 2% transition tiles when ordering products. 

Tip 5 – Try Bellaforté tiles. Depending on the job, Bellaforté Shake can install up to 40% faster than real cedar.
