PABCO Roofing's Premier Advantage shingles garner QARC award with Star House installation

The Star House was originally built by a family as a vacation cabin overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. They wanted to honor their Texas roots so they built the house in the shape of the Lone Star. The original roofing and siding on the home consisted of heavy redwood shakes. The homeowner planned an extensive remodel; they wanted to update the appearance and durability of the exterior products.

Fort Bragg is known to experience high winds, heavy rain and frequent fog. The damp, salt air environment seemed to age the wood shakes, so they felt it prudent to go with a more durable product. The general contractor used PABCO® Roofing Products asphalt shingles on his own home in Esparto, California and cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. He had first-hand experience with asphalt shingles and knew how they perform in challenging climates. They chose the shingle that best fit the strict aesthetic and performance requirements of the Coastal Commission.
