The Trout Street Bar & Grill in Port Aransas, Texas contracted with State Roofing Company for a new roofing system for installation the first week of December. This fine establishment closed for three days to facilitate the roof installation. Trout Street Bar & Grill, a purveyor of fresh Gulf seafood, adjoins the Port Aransas Marina filled with rows and rows of fabulous fishing boats.
The owners chose the GAF Timberline HD Ultra Lifetime® shingle for the new roof installation. The Slate colored shingle complemented the architecture and paint colors of the restaurant. The heavier weight Ultra shingle was used due to the high winds that are often present on the coastal location. GAF Pro-Start® was utilized for the starter strip. GAF Z-ridge® was used on the hip condition with GAF Timber-Tex® used over the 12” GAF Cobra Ridge-vent®. The ridge vent was utilized at all the ridges to facilitate adequate ventilation for the structure. GAF Stormguard® was utilized in the valleys and around all penetrations in the roofing system.
Trout Street Bar & Grill will receive a GAF System-Plus Warranty as State Roofing Company is the only factory certified GAF Master Elite Weather Stopper Contractor in the Coastal Bend.
The DL Drip edge was galvanized and was pickled, primed and painted on both sides to match the fascia color. All roof vents are galvanized that have been pickled, primed and painted inside and outside to match the shingle color.
The eight man crew worked day break to dark for three days and did a final clean and punch out the morning of the fourth day. A safety officer was on duty during the installation to protect any visitors to the site and monitor the crews’ actions on the steep two story structure.
The General Manager, Chip Ritz was very complementary of the installation, “The crew was great and did an awesome job.” He also gave a big “Thank you for the company’s professional service”.
