Texas State Aquarium – The Aviary
Texas State Roofing was honored to be selected as the roofing contractor to replace the roofing system on the Aviary Building adjacent to the Hawn Wild Flight Theater at the Texas State Aquarium. This building is home to the hawks, falcons, owls, parrots and other birds and wildlife that serve as ambassadors in communicating the importance of conserving wildlife.
Texas State Roofing installed an Aluminum Standing Seam System with concealed fasteners. The .032 Aluminum coil, from which the roof was fabricated on site, is factory painted with Valspar Fluropon paint and has a 35 Year Limited Warranty. The color is Regal Blue. The previous roof was a Galvalume material, which does not stand up to the salt air in a coastal environment – and barely survived service for ten years. Texas State Roofing also replaced the .032 Aluminum gutters and downspouts and replaced the deteriorating wood siding on the cupola with James Hardie® fiber cement siding.
The Texas State Aquarium has become an integral part of Corpus Christi with over 500,000 visitors yearly and has a $90 million positive effect on the local economy. The Texas State Aquarium has made great strides in engaging the visitors with the animals, inspiring appreciation of our seas, and supporting wildlife conservation.
