Project Background

The Milwaukee City Hall is a historic landmark originally built in 1895. The building has a spired tower and was once the tallest building in the city of Milwaukee. The hall became a National Historic Landmark in 2005 and needed major renovations to protect the building. Yet a botched restoration job by inferior contractors left sections of the roof looking rundown. Roofed Right America was eager to help preserve and restore this famous building.

Project Conditions

Any work on the exterior of Milwaukee City Hall was going to be complicated. The historic appearance of the hall had to be preserved. A central skylight and multiple decorative spires had to be worked around. This would not be a simple job by any means.

Fortunately, our team of local roofing contractors have years of experience with historical roofs. We are a Historical Society Project Contractor due to our work on historical commercial properties.

Strategies and Results

Our first goal was to provide waterproof roofing material and installation. The steep slopes often caused water to collect on the roof, putting the building at risk of leaks. At over 100 years old, a waterproof roof would go a long way in preventing water damage to the more vulnerable internal structures of the building. The finished roof is watertight to prevent leaks and water damage for years and years.

Next, we focused on repairing any damage that had occurred in the building’s past. The result is a unified appearance across the entire roof. This historic building will last long into the future thanks to our work.
