Classic Restorations Adds New Roof to Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat

Written by 

The restful setting of the Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat in Stamford, Ct., now has a new roof overhead that perfectly complements the structure’s Mediterranean style architecture. Thanks to the expert roofers at Classic Restorations Inc., a polymer Multi-Width Slate roof from DaVinci Roofscapes® has been added to the rambling structure.

Classic Restorations Adds New Roof to Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat

Sitting on a tranquil hillcrest setting, the international Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat and gardens is home to educational seminars, retreats and programs. The center was created by the Knights of Columbus and is operated by the Sisters of Life. Constructed as a series of interconnecting buildings, the white stucco structure is accented with red-hued corner tile pieces and brick. The new DaVinci roof color was selected to carry the orange-red color of the tiles and brick across the entire expanse of the retreat.

"We had the DaVinci team create a custom color that involved 33 percent each of dark and medium terracotta with light clay colors to capture just the right blend to complement the Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat," says Victoria Jackson, president of Classic Restorations in Stamford, Ct. "We recommended the DaVinci slate tiles based on our past successful work with this company. We believe DaVinci is the best synthetic slate product in the marketplace and we've installed the roofing tiles on several homes in our area."

DaVinci Multi-Width Slate tiles offer many advantages for both commercial and residential products. The tiles resist fire, impact, rot and insects. Available in 49 standard colors and unlimited custom color options, the DaVinci tiles are backed by a 50-year limited warranty.

"This retreat is a truly beautiful setting made even more special by the DaVinci roof overhead," says Jackson. "We added 182 squares to this structure and have helped the Sisters of Life have a roof they can depend on for decades to come."
