Frank Lloyd Wright Roof Restoration Project

Awards, News

Allrite Home & Remodeling won a Silver Award in the “Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration” category for a roofing project we completed on a historic lakefront home.
Not only did we have the homeowner to impress, but a whole community – both online and in public – of enthusiasts of the original architect of this home!

Designed and built in 1905 by Frank Lloyd Wright, this home is a historical treasure.

After several rounds of restoration and renovation, the final project on the homeowner’s list of home improvement projects was a roof. With the owner’s trust and our team’s experience, we knew we were the right ones for the job.

After consulting with the homeowner, we chose DaVinci® Single-Width Shakes in Aged Cedar, to give the home its original appearance of a natural cedar roof – but with less maintenance and a longer lifespan. The DaVinci product is made from synthetic materials that have the dimensional look of natural cedar shakes, and are completely fire resistant. DaVinci Roofscapes loved our work so much, they featured us in their online portfolio! As a final touch, we replaced the plain brown chimney flashing with beautiful copper flashing that will continue to add character to the home as it ages and patinas. Head over to our gallery to see more before and after images of this historic home renovation.

Not only did we have the homeowner to impress, but a whole community – both online and in public – of enthusiasts of the original architect of this home. We were delighted to see that a Facebook fan took the time to comment on the new roof!

We’re so proud to have won a 2019 NARI Milwaukee’s Remodeler of the Year Silver Award in the “Residential Historical Renovation/Restoration” category and we’re ready to do award-winning work on your home. Let us know what exterior renovation project is next on your list.
