Building a Florida home two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean begins with an aesthetically pleasing design. Equally important is the use of building materials that can withstand the unending combination of hot sun and salty ocean. Given those challenges, it’s no wonder Petersen Aluminum’s Snap-Clad panels were chosen for this complex and visually striking residential roof.
Ponte Vedra Beach is an unincorporated seaside community in St. Johns County on the east coast of northern Florida. The area is known for its golf courses and for being the headquarters of the PGA Tour. When the Callahan’s chose Ponte Vedra Beach to build their new home, the architectural firm of Jaycox Reinel created the look of a residential estate.
Roofing contractor Thorne Metal Systems of Green Cove Springs, FL was instrumental in the selection of Snap-Clad standing seam roofing panels. On the Callahan home they installed 12,000 sq. ft. of the Petersen Aluminum’s .040 gauge slate gray Snap-Clad.
Snap-Clad roofing panels feature a 1-3/4” leg height and a continuous interlock for improved structural performance. A concealed fastener clip system allows for thermal expansion/contraction while providing extraordinary hold-down strength. The panels meet Florida Testing Application Standards and Miami-Dade building codes.
The Callahan’s general contractor, C. F. Knight, Inc. of Jacksonville, has coordinated some of Northeast Florida’s most exquisite homes. Aluminum metal panels for the project were manufactured in PAC’s Acworth, GA plant.
