When it came time to replace aging roofs, it was important to keep the look visitors as well as the community had grown to love. Thanks to the diligence and dedication offered by Greg L. Lauterbach Architect, LLC, Brava Sierra Shake was approved and specified for the replacement.

Greg and his team decided on Brava because of “the aesthetics of the tile and long-life span.” In addition, it was decided by all the color Sierra “best mimics the look of real wood shingles while having the benefits of a composite.”

Sierra Roof Color

Having the right look is only a small part of the equation. Cox Arboretum demanded a roof capable of handling all the weather conditions local to Western, OH. Seasonal rains, hail, high winds, heavy snow loads and extreme fluctuations in temperature are just a few of natures “gifts” in the heartland.

These elements plague roofs throughout the Midwest as well many other parts of the country, rendering many roofing materials inadequate. They simply do not offer the strength or durability of Brava Roof Tiles.

Durable Roof Tiles

When it comes to a durable and long-lasting roofing product, Brava Roof Tile rates amongst the industries toughest. Offering a class 4 impact rating, a wind rating in excess of 188mph with ring shank nails and an installed weight of only 350lbs per roofing square, Brava Shake is in a league of its own.

Of course, a great roofing material is only as great as the installer. E. Lee Construction headed this project seamlessly from start to finish. By the time the job was complete E. Lee Construction successfully installed Brava Shake on three different buildings across the property.
