Historic Tile Roofing
Chicago, IL

Tile Roofing With Custom Copper


Project Overview

Summary provided by video transcript.

Hey, guys. Huy here with RestoreMasters. Today, we have a very unique project that we’re working on. Let’s go check it out.

So this property was built in 1915, with all of its original materials and components. Now, this includes copper gutters, copper downspouts, copper valleys, and copper all around the metal. It also includes its original roofing system, which is a historic clay roof.

Now last year, this property was hit by an inch and a half hail storm that came by through this prestigious neighborhood. The homeowners decided to call us to check it out, and today we’re building them a brand new roof. Let’s go take a look.

Now we are at the back elevation of the historic home. As you can see, we have scaffolding set up. Not only is this for the safety of our crews, but for the safety of the homeowner and her guests. As you look around, you can see that this homeowner has spent a lot of time taking care of her landscape. We want to make sure that it stays impeccable and protected just in case, if there’s materials that fall down, it doesn’t damage the property. Now let’s go up.

All right, we made it up. So right behind me is brand new copper valleys that were just installed today. What we had to do is detach and reset each one of these historic clay tiles, put brand new underlayment on, and then we installed the valley. Now, the reason why we’re wearing gloves is not only for our safety, but for the safety of the materials. Since this is a natural metal, the oils on your fingertips causes this to deteriorate at a much faster rate.

So right now we’re currently soldering the copper on top of the dormer, making sure that it’s properly sealed and withstands the test of time.

So here we are at the copper station. This is where our crews cut and fabricate the copper right on site to fit perfectly with your home.

Well, that’s it for today, guys. If you own a historic property here in the Winnetka or Evanston area and would like a free inspection by one of our specialists, give us a call. We’ll swing by and we’ll do a full 10 point inspection on your property for free. Give us a call or visit our website at www.restoremastersllc.com. I’ll see you at the next project.
