Winery​ Roof Becomes D.C. Taylor Co.’s 4th RoofPoint™ Registered Project

July 6, 2013

D.C. Taylor Co. is proud to announce that its roofing project at the Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena, Calif., has been recognized as a RoofPoint™ Registered Project. This is the national roofing contractor’s fourth RoofPoint Registered Project.

RoofPoint™ is a voluntary, consensus-based green rating system developed by the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing to provide a means for roofing contractors, building owners, and designers to select roof systems based on long-term energy and environmental benefits.

RoofPoint Registered Projects demonstrate roofing excellence in several key categories, including energy, materials, water, life cycle, and durability management. RoofPoint Registered Projects are submitted by applicants and determined to meet a minimum score overall and in each major RoofPoint category. RoofPoint Registered Projects are recognized to embody the key principles of sustainable roofing.

“RoofPoint Registered Projects represent the unique contribution the roofing industry is making to sustainable construction and showcase the critical role roofs play in mitigating the impact buildings have on our environment,” said Center President Craig Silvertooth.

From October 2012 to January 2013, a D.C. Taylor Co. crew restored the 187,500-square foot foam roof with an acrylic coating. This high-performance coating will extend the service life of the roof by 25-plus years. “Because existing roof assembly components were reused, more than 10,500 cubic yards of waste was diverted from the landfill,” explains Mike S. O’Bryant, Regional Account Manager.

During roof preparation and pressure washing, D.C. Taylor Co. captured the water run-off. This prevented contaminated water from entering the soil at the vineyard.

Blue Sky Utility, a Napa, California-based solar rooftop developer, subcontracted with D.C. Taylor Co. for the installation of a solar system on the newly cured roof. An eight-man crew installed 1,345 solar standoffs and the solar PV racking system, flashing the standoffs with new foam and coatings. Next, 4,620 solar panels were installed. The system will provide 1.6 megawatt hours of energy annually, helping the vineyard offset its demand from the grid.
