Medallion-Lok From McElroy Metal Tops Signature Barn Project

McElroy Signature Barn Project
March 9, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.

Rare is the barn that designer, builder, roofer and owner all consider a signature project. The Miller Barn in Churchville, Maryland, is that rare exception.

In need of a new barn to store lawn equipment, a rural homeowner had the original barn on his property torn down to construct a new barn. The owner spared no expense on materials, ordered up some top-of-the-line products and topped it off with a standing seam metal roof from McElroy Metal.

“It was all high-end materials, the best of everything,” says Ted Jasinski, AIA, NCARB, CGP, Vice President and Director of Architecture at Frederick Ward Associates of Bel Air, Maryland. “The retaining wall, the metal roofing, the exterior siding, the custom doors … it started as a $750,000 project, but with change orders, it ended up being a million-dollar barn. It’s in an upscale rural neighborhood.

“Let’s just say it’s a real nice storage facility for some lawn equipment.”

The 4,875 square foot barn also has a loft measuring 1,880 square feet. Windowed dormers in the loft area provide plenty of light into the building. The 14-foot wide doors accommodate equipment stored in the barn. The view from the barn overlooks the pasture below.

Everyone who worked on the project was focused on executing the details. McElroy Metal’s Medallion-Lok standing seam roofing (7,500 square feet) was carefully installed by Agpoint Construction Services of Quarryville, Pennsylvania. Project manager Barry Flora had plenty of crew members on the jobsite to handle the lengthy panels in some challenging conditions. The roof had various pitches, some as steep as 9:12, requiring extra safety precautions.

“That area has a tendency to be subject to some windy days and getting those longer panels into place took extra care,” Flora says. “We also paid close attention to detail during the roof installation, make sure everything was flashed properly. Obviously, you never want to have water infiltration with any building, but with all those dormers, this job provided plenty of opportunities. We made sure it wasn’t going to happen.”

The 16-inch wide panels featured the Sherwin-Williams Fluropon PVDF coating in the color Charcoal Gray and double pencil ribs to increase rigidity. Approximately 7,500 square feet of McElroy Metal’s standing seam roofing was used to complete the job, with a small amount of copper standing seam roofing to top off the cupolas.

The interior of the barn was sided with T-1111 clear cedar siding, featuring grooves 8 inches on center. The T-111 siding was also wrapped around the bottom four feet of the interior glulam columns. The interior of the windows and doors were all carefully trimmed with the T-111 siding. The exterior siding is 1 by 12 #1 cedar board and batten siding. RigidPly Rafters of Richland, Pa., supplied the columns, interior and exterior siding, barn trusses as well as the S-5! ColorGard snow retention system.
