Mohican Lodge and Conference Center, Perrysville, Ohio
Roofing Contractor: Wolfrum Roofing and Exteriors, Delaware, Ohio
Architect: Star Consultants Inc. Architects and Engineers, Columbus, Ohio
Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus roofing tiles in Aspen Blend, color Driftwood, (staggered 6- and 7-inch exposure) wide spec were installed on the approximately 443,000-square-foot project. The tiles are an eco-friendly and hassle-free synthetic alternative to wood shake roofing. Empire Shake and Empire Shake Plus tiles combine the classic architectural detail of natural wood with the modern performance, long life cycle and energy efficiency found with synthetic tiles.
The following materials complete the roof system: Empire Shake Hip and Ridge; Glacier Guard impermeable self-adhering membrane, which protects against moisture penetration from wind-driven rain and water backup caused by ice dams; Versa Shield Fiberglass-based Class A underlayment; EcoVent continuous tile-over ridge vent that efficiently removes moisture buildup in the attic space of a building, helping to prevent mold and mildew growth and effectively reducing the building’s cooling costs while extending the life of the roof; EnBase polyiso roof insulation panels; Q” Hand Drive; and 1 1/2-inch coil nails.
Roof System Manufacturer: EcoStar
The reroofing project began in November 2015 and was completed in March 2016.
Wolfrum Roofing and Exteriors incorporated EcoStar’s total range of capabilities, including wide range coloring and multiwidth and high-definition tiles that are Class A fire rated. Using a material with recycled content was desired for this project and, with 25 percent recycled content, Empire Shake met the requirement.
The roofing contracting team says working with the design team at Star Consultants was a pleasure and is proud that together they produced a roof with tremendous curb appeal that is likely to impress guests of the lodge for years to come.
