GOLD – Star House by John Foster, General Contractor, Fort Bragg, California
Asphalt roofing systems have the distinctive ability to provide superior durability and protection while also enhancing unique architecture. John Foster, a roofing contractor in Esparto, CA, was tasked with updating the appearance and resilience of this incredible star-shaped home. The home’s original owners designed the structure around the Lone Star to honor their Texas roots. Sitting on a range of cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean with no protection from storms and high winds, the homeowners needed a roof that could perform in a challenging climate.
The contractors chose PABCO Roofing Products Premier Advantage Granite shingles because of the product’s exceptional wind resistance and ability to endure the damp, salty coastal environment. The shingles’ color and design complemented the look of the home without getting lost in the bold architecture. Despite a challenging design, the contractor successfully installed an asphalt roofing system that met the rigorous aesthetic and performance requirements of the project.
