Residential Project in Snowmass Colorado

by Linda Schmid

Surrounded by the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains, this inviting residential home is located near Aspen, Colorado. The residence features uninterrupted panoramic views and a steep gabled roof (with pitches of 7/12 and 9/12), recently replaced with metal panels in Steelscape’s unique Rustic Rawhide finish.

The homeowners had an existing cedar shake roof and were seeking a durable system that would provide a Class A fire rating. When used in conjunction with the correct underlayment, metal provides an excellent solution that will last for decades. They had already decided on a standing seam metal roof, but were undecided on the color. When they were shown samples of Rustic Rawhide, they loved it right away. Rustic Rawhide offers a restrained color that complements the design features of the home and a texture that reduces the sheen of the large roof area.

With both visual appeal and outstanding performance, the home now features a roof as memorable as the views around it.
