Hotel LBI is New Jersey’s finest coastal hotel—located in Ship Bottom, the hotel offers the charm of a summer home paired with top-of-the-line amenities. They provide a world-class experience and they wanted their new building design to reflect that same upscale feel. The design of this new construction build is reminiscent of the early 1900s-style grand hotels, and the Drexel Metals standing seam metal roof is the cherry on top of a beautifully executed project. 

Kupex Exteriors of Trenton, New Jersey, is a valued partner of Drexel Metals and a well-trusted roofing installer in the New Jersey tri-state area. They offer several commercial building exterior services as well as residential services. After working with the general contractor of this specific project on several other occasions, the managing partner of Kupex Exteriors said they ended up being a natural choice to bring in for the execution of this roof installation. The contractor was already very familiar with the vast array of metal roofing benefits, so choosing the roofing material was an easy task. 

The specific Drexel Metals material used for this project was the DMC 175S 1¾” Snap Lock panel. This panel type is known for its distinctive broad width seam, impressive structural capabilities, and easy Snap Lock installation. Featuring a 1¾” seam height, this continuous interlocking engineered roof system has a concealed fastener and clip application that allows thermal movement and requires no mechanical seaming to ensure weathertight integrity. The installation is simple and quick, yet it withstands extremely high design pressures, a natural fit for the location of this hotel right along the coastline that’s more prone to high winds.
