This private residence located atop Bear Mountain in Killington, VT, was built using a metal roof coated with a KYNAR PVDF resin based finish.
Metal roofing was chosen to enhance the style and appeal of the home built by Paul Biebel of Biebel Builders. KYNAR 500-based metal roofing has been widely used in severe weather areas to reduce snow loading while providing long-term durability and color retention.
Englert Inc. of Perth Amboy, NJ, applied the Charcoal Gray Permacolor finish to the metal that was fabricated onsite by JEI, Inc. doing business as Iron Horse Standing Seam Roofing. The home required 10,000 square feet of painted metal roofing.
It was noted that the project used BASF’s ULTRA-Cool coatings based on KYNAR 500 PVDF resin, which meet Energy Star specifications for Cool Roofs that can save energy. This coating system can reflect heat away from the building while increasing the life expectancy of the roof due to less expansion and contraction.
