Sea Crest Condos

Metal Panels Protected With Tedlar® PVF Film Chosen To Reroof Coastal Condos

Tedlar® PVF film was selected as a protective roofing material for the Sea Crest Condos in Hilton Head, South Carolina in 2022. The project includes a 6-story building, constructed approximately 20 years prior, which sits directly on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean. The existing steel roof panels and framing of the building were severely corroded and the owner was looking for a long-term solution to withstand an extremely corrosive environment.

Construction Metal Products (CMP), a leading panel producer in the Carolinas, was selected to facilitate the renovation project and recommend suitable materials. They were presented with two options. The first was to install a standard coastal paint finish on an aluminum base metal, which included scheduling, executing, and documenting yearly maintenance to maintain the paint finish warranty. The second option was to install Tedlar® on an aluminum base metal with no maintenance requirement to maintain the finish warranty.

Aluminum panels laminated with Tedlar® from their partner Metal Alliance were ultimately chosen for their excellent durability by the coast, even as close as 1,500 feet from the ocean. Additionally, Tedlar’s® flexibility allowed it to bend to tight edges on the roofing panels without compromising film integrity or adhesion, thus assuring the roof is protected and looks brand new for decades. Installers commented that Tedlar® was durable and hardier during installation than other paint finish options. They also noted the ease of installation of the panels and the excellent finished look of the roof.

The 6,700 sq. ft. of new metal panels were installed by RPI Roofing with panels supplied by Construction Metal Products, from coils provided by Metal Alliance. Metal Alliance Tedlar® products are available with up to 50-year warranties and no coastal restrictions, offering revolutionary protection to the metal building panel market.
