According to Gianni Pellegrinon, senior project manager at Sullivan Roofing Inc., the installer for the rainscreen system panels, "The biggest challenge was alignment of the seams on the vertical fin at the entryway. The fin is about 10 inches wide and has mitered corners that really turned out nice. We also used the composite material to finish off the top of supporting brick columns under the entrance canopy soffit."
