Project Details

One year after the completion of their new facility in Crater Lake, Oregon, Xanterra Parks & Resorts contacted PRC to determine the failure mode of the imitation cedar shingles roof system that was originally specified.  After an exhaustive study, PRC determined that the imitation shingles were improperly formulated and manufactured resulting in the rapid failure of the roof.  In addition, even without the material defect the shingles were capable of withstanding the climatic conditions experienced in this heavy snow region.  PRC identified several other structural and design concerns with regard to heavy snow load and glacial type snow movement on the roof structure.  Our firm developed an emergency plan for securing the building from water intrusion over the winter as the construction season was drawing to a close and the area is uninhabitable through the winter months. Ultimately PRC designed and oversaw the roof replacement and modification project.
