Frank Lloyd Wright Roof Restoration Project


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. 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 list 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 decided to use DaVinci® Single-Width Shakes in Aged Cedar, to give the home its original appearance with less maintenance and a longer lifespan. Around the chimney had been plain brown flashing, and we updated it with beautiful copper flashing that will continue to add character to the home as it ages and patinas.

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!
