A venue can make or a break an event, and in the stress of finding the “perfect place,” aesthetics usually reign supreme. There are, of course, a number of other factors that must be considered when choosing a location for a corporate gathering, wedding or family celebration, but when it’s all boiled down, a place must have the right feel. The rest will follow.

The Grand Hall at Westlake Gardens, an expert in the event business, is well aware of this. In assuring its guests a pleasing aesthetic, no detail is spared. While events are typically held indoors, those at the Grand Hall know that the building’s exterior serves an important role in customer decisions.

A recent update to the building’s exterior goes to show that the Grand Hall puts appearances first. The Grand Hall received a new metal paneled roof in October of 2016. After prices for replacement asphalt shingles proved out of budget, the team decided to use more reasonably priced architectural exterior metal roof panels.

Architects from The Etica Group decided to use McElroy Metal’s 138T Shingle Recover roofing system. With this system, elevated clips are used to create an energy-saving ASV (Above Sheathing Ventilation) airspace between the original roof and the new standing seam panels. The reduction of utility expenses will continue to save the Grand Hall in years to come.

The standing-seam metal roof panels are finished in an Evergreen shade of Valspar’s FluroponÒ PVDF architectural exterior coating. This Fluropon coating is the cherry on top, quite literally, of the benefits the standing-seam metal roof panels offer. The Grand Hall at Westlake Gardens is in good hands with a coating that will come through with long-lasting protection.

Fluropon offers many unique benefits including enduring dirt and stain resistance and phenomenal color consistency. While durability is key, especially for roofing, Fluropon goes the extra mile. Fluropon architectural exterior coatings have outstanding resistance to ultra-violet rays. Solar Reflective (SR) formulations are able to lower energy costs by reflecting infrared radiation without sacrificing durability, performance or beauty.

The Grand Hall at Westlake Gardens is now equipped with a clean, sleek roof that will also provide the building with unwavering protection. With an exterior that matched the vibrant interior, the Grand Hall is certain to wow those scouting out their next event venue.
