Historically Accurate Restoration

The goal of historic roofing restoration is to use all original materials. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. One example is building regulations in many areas today no longer allow wood shingles.

Here are some of the beautiful roofing applications today that not only balance the need to protect your historic roofing restoration project, but also provide the historical integrity of your homes roofing system.

Slate Roofing– Slate roofs have been installed on buildings for more than a thousand years. This practice was brought to the New World by European settlers. Nothing else quite matches the durability, aesthetics, and fireproof qualities that were available with slate. This same quality remains prevalent today.

Clay Tile– Clay tile roofing has been in existence for more than 10,000 years. Many early buildings in China, Babylonia, Egypt, Rome, and Greece were beautifully roofed in clay tile.

Metal- Metal roofing applications have a history that extends for many centuries. In the early part of this country’s history, the very important buildings were roofed with lead copper, and tin (tin-plated iron). Today, the options for metal roofing for historical buildings include similar choices. Lead is still used throughout most of Europe. Copper also withstands the test of time and is workable in many different applications and can be used where corrosion or run-off might be a concern.
