Amazing! Stone Coated Metal Roof Takes the Heat in Wildfire Zone
Information about Stone Coated Metal Roof Takes the Heat in Wildfire Zone
The Audubon Sanctuary in Trabuco Canyon in Southern California is an important site. Wildlife and restoration work is being carried out there to help protect a fragile area that is facing tremendous pressures from climate change and drought. At the heart of the sanctuary is a beautiful 90-year-old historic structure threatened by severe conditions including the region’s infamous Santa Anas – very strong, extremely dry downdraft winds that create dangerous wildfire conditions.
When it came time to re-roof, wildfire and wind protection were top priorities for the Sanctuary. As well as long-lasting performance to avoid the need for repair or replacement for decades to come. The old asphalt roof just didn’t offer the fire resistance the structure needed, and it was also badly damaged, having some unique problems caused by some of the sanctuary’s feathered friends. Woodpeckers had stored many pounds of acorns in the old roof, stuffing them into the asphalt shingle crevices, crevices and crevices, further compromising its ability to withstand the elements and protect the structure.
Spotlight on MRA members Unified Steel™, a Westlake and McCormack Roofing company:
A heavy-duty, resilient and long-lasting stone-coated metal roof was selected for the new roof. With a 50-year warranty and Class A ignition protection, the new roof protects against a potential spark caused by wildfire. The new roof is light, strong, and impervious and tightly installed with very few penetrations to prevent the region’s winged denizens from using it as a storage facility. It also provides a beautiful stylistic complement to the structure’s historic rustic feel, adding a natural charm.
“In this area, high quality stone faced metal roofing is a great solution,” said Thurston Tsui of McCormack Roofing. “It’s light and very dense, making it resilient to wildfires and strong winds.”
