The VISION House Seattle Cascades team picks roofing that works with the climate and controls thermal gain.
One easy decision on this project was to use steel roofing, particularly with the growing threat of wildfire in the region. The experts selected BoralSteel’s stone clad steel roofing, not only for its exceptional fire resistance, but also because the house is on a sunny site and will not have air conditioning, it was necessary to pick a product that would keep heat from entering through the roof.
The VISION House Seattle Cascades project brings together the greatest minds in the building industry to redefine what it means to build green homes in today’s marketplace. The home will serve as a simple, replicable application of innovative design, progressive building science, and thoughtful green building that professionals and homeowners can follow throughout the nation.
