Rua and Son Mechanical took a little extra care with the installation of the 238T Plank and Pencil Rib standing-seam metal roof to solve ongoing leaks at the clubhouse. “We installed a system with better lapping and counterflashing,” explains Louie Rua, president of Rua and Son Mechanical. “At the transition, we installed a 1/2-inch aluminum welded saddle.”
The roofing manufacturer brought a rollformer and curver to the job site, located on Air Combat Command at Beale Air Force Base. Approximately 30,800 square feet of the 238T panel in Surrey Beige was formed and installed. The longest panels were almost 70-feet long. Five areas required curved panels: the four entrances and a large vented area for the HVAC equipment in the attic. The 238T symmetrical panel system offers wind-uplift resistance and strength characteristics, individual panel replacement capability and job-site rollforming for long-length panels.
Working at Beale Air Force Base requires crew members to obtain government clearance. “And there are high safety requirements on the base,” Rua adds. “That’s nothing new for our crews; we work hard to follow safety regulations on every job.”
Andrew Drumheller of North Star Construction and Engineering oversaw the reroofing project. “There is a lot of security protocol in place on this military base,” Drumheller notes. “Security is very tight, and the building was in use the whole time, so our challenge was coordinating the job with the occupants. Our installer did a great job.”

For more than a decade, the patrons of the Recce Point Club House at Coyote Run Golf Course were forced to put up with a leaky roof at the entrances. The problem areas were the valleys between the roofing and the curved roofing over the entrances. “ … They were dealing with leaks from day one,” Rua notes.
The reroof was completed in november 2014 and is performing well.
