When the recently remodeled Hoover Dam Lodge and Casino in Boulder City, Nevada, reopened its doors in April 2015, they did so with a new roof overhead. A Multi-Width Shake polymer roof from DaVinci Roofscapes now tops a covered walkway that runs the entire length of the building plus two porte cochères and a high roof over the hotel. “This is truly a beautiful roof that adds to our entire renovation effort,” says John Dade, chief of engineering at Hoover Dam Lodge. “We appreciate its durability and believe it would improve the look of any building.”
Located just four miles from the Hoover Dam, the hotel and casino stretches out impressively on the road towards one of Nevada’s most famous attractions. The renovation included hotel guest rooms, casino, cafe, general store, and Player’s Club. “There are many different rooflines on this project that add to the visual appeal of the structure,” says John Latham, business development manager with Technicoat Management, Inc., installers of the roof system. “During the roofing selection process we walked the hotel project team through the engineering process, comparing different roofing products and costs. Ultimately the look of the cedar shake roof from DaVinci influenced them the most.” According to Latham, even though this was the first time their team had installed DaVinci composite roofing, the project went smoothly. “There were no major issues with the project and we found the simulated shake roofing very similar to installing a wood shake shingle,” says Latham. “We’d highly recommend the synthetic cedar shake DaVinci products in the future for other clients.”
