Griffin Enright Architects: material of dark grey blocks on top of the door is www.parklex.com / a resin-impregnated wood product. Fascia is Bonderized steel: galvanized steel that is processed through a phosphate bath. This provides a corrosion inhibiting, crystalline zinc phosphate, micro-porous surface that promotes adhesion of top coatings. // Bonderized steel is actually Galvanized G90 that has been put through a phosphate bath and has a layer of Chromate applied and dried leaving it ready to accept paint. The process produces a dull gray colored finish. "Paint Grip" holds paint well and is popular in the rainwater goods industry: rain gutters, downspouts, roof flashings, and roof valleys. In recent years architects have used Bonderized for roofing and siding WITHOUT applying paint to the steel. This is done to achieve a beautiful dull gray WEATHERED look. www.bonderized.com/about-bonderized-steel.html
