Waterfront resort’s new 74-room inn topped with complicated metal roof

The recently expanded Palmetto Bluff Resort in Bluffton, S.C., now boasts a new 74-room inn complete with extensive high-end amenities and a Petersen Snap-Clad roof finished in custom color Patrician Bronze. Approximately 75,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD 24 gauge Galvalume panels was installed on a tight deadline.

Designed by Dallas-based HKS Architects, the Resort’s new inn sits alongside an expanded lagoon waterway and was inspired by the R.T. Wilson Jr. mansion built on the property in the early 1900s. The Resort is set within the 20,000 acre Palmetto Bluff community and conservation preserve that features an array of Southern-style residential neighborhoods ranging from multi-million dollar legacy family compounds to more traditionally sized single-family homes.

Installation of the Snap-Clad Panels on the 154,000 sq. ft. luxury inn was completed by Southern Roof & Wood Care in Hardeeville, S.C. “It was a complicated job with three adjoining sections of the roof and lots of different elevations, planes and dormers. The flashing details were complex,” said Southern President David Swanson.

Southern Roof & Wood Care has considerable experience with Petersen and the PAC-CLAD profiles. “We like Snap-Clad because it doesn’t require mechanical seaming. We use it whenever we can and when it meets the wind uplift requirements,” Swanson said. “Of course, we also install a lot of Tite-Loc and Tite-Loc Plus, too. We like using the PAC-CLAD products because we can be competitive in the marketplace. We’re really happy with the Petersen relationship. They stand behind their products.”

The general contractor was Choate Construction in Savannah. The Petersen distributor on the project was Commercial Roofing Specialties in Savannah. The Snap-Clad panels were manufactured at Petersen’s plant in Acworth, Ga.
