General contractor, The Steel Building Guys, called upon MBCI to supply metal paneling for both the walls and roof of the 2,100 square-foot barn, which were finished in Valspar’s Fluropon architectural coating. To achieve the traditional barn aesthetic, the wall panels were coated in a Rustic Red color of Fluropon, while the metal roof panels were finished in Polar White. In addition to achieving the desired authentic barn look, Valspar’s Fluropon coatings also add to the durability of the structure.
Acknowledged as a staple in the coating industry, the benefits of Fluropon are wide-reaching. The excellent adhesion properties were helpful when coating the roof, which features fully functional louvered cupolas. The Polar White coating on the roof will also help reflect ultraviolet rays, reducing the heat in the building, and providing a cool space to store the grapevines. Additionally, Fluropon protects the building’s exterior as it is formulated to resist chalking and fading. The coating also offers supreme color retention, which will help the Bastoni Vineyards barn sparkle in the Valley.
In addition to acting as the main grapevine storage barn, the new building provides space for Bastoni Vineyards to host vineyard tours as well as serves as a phenomenal, scenic location for a variety of events.
