A New Roof for a Historic Home

Home / Gallery / A New Roof for a Historic Home

Pin this project:

Designed and built in 1905 by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Thomas P. Hardy House is a historical treasure. The stucco finished front, intricately detailed windows and breathtaking views make this home like no other in the neighborhood. However, it was desperately in need of a new roof. We were tasked with restoring the home to its former glory by tearing off the old roof and replacing it with a new one.

Upon tearing off the roof, the crews discovered significant fire damage that needed to be repaired. After removing and fixing the damaged rafters, we installed Davinci® Single-Width Shakes in Aged Cedar to give the home its original appearance. The simulated cedar shakes gave the home its original appearance with less maintenance and a longer lifespan. As a beautiful finishing touch, we replaced the brown flashing around the chimney with copper flashing that will add character to the home as it ages.
