HISTORIC PRESERVATION: The Red Antiquities Building
Problem: Constructed in 1873, the Red Antiquities Building in London, Ontario Canada, needed to preserve its historical appearance of a wood shake roof while finding ways to reduce energy and maintenance costs.
Solution: DECRA Shake XD® in Antique Chestnut reduces the heat in the attic and provides the classic wood shake appearance that meets historical preservation requirements.
Results: The restoration of the building will allow for many more years of service to the community and the new roof has helped in reducing maintenance and energy costs.
RELIGIOUS: Bethlehem Lutheran Church
Problem: Bethlehem Lutheran Church’s existing asphalt shingles were falling off due to high wind conditions in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
Solution: Installing DECRA Shake XD® in Pinnacle Grey. The interlocking nature of DECRA’s direct to deck, hidden fastener product can withstand 120 mph winds.
Results: Eliminated the need for constant patching, repairing, and fixing the existing asphalt roof. The Shake XD® roof provided an upgraded more dimensional appearance while coordinating with the existing style of the church.
COMMERCIAL: Sleep Center
Problem: The new commercial Sleep Center needed to blend into the residential area it resided in and the old wood shake roof posed a fire hazard.
Solution: Installing DECRA Shake XD® in Pinnacle Grey. Shake XD® is a Class A fire rated material and emulates wood shake.
Results: The Class A fire rating ensured patient safety and the choice of Shake XD® preserved the residential feel, blending with the surrounding neighborhood. Easy maintenance, a 50-year warranty and minimal noise requirements are also a plus.
