History is worth protecting. Huber and Associates specializes in historical restoration and preservation of roofs — protecting buildings nationally and internationally that are architecturally, culturally and historically important. Our team has been restoring and preserving historical roofs for more than 40 years. In that time, we have partnered with homeowners, businesses, government agencies and heritage preservation societies, and gained a reputation as historical restoration experts.

Our team of roofers works with many kinds of materials, including clay tile, copper and other ornamental metals, slate, thatch and wood. In everything we do, we strive to create restorations that are as beautiful and durable as the original, maintaining fidelity to its core design principles while adding years of life by using modern techniques and materials.

We have previously worked on many historically designated properties, including those listed below. Follow the links on this page to view detailed case studies and learn more about how we can help you.

Protecting History

At Huber & Associates, when we complete a historic home roof renovation, our primary focus is on getting the colors, finishes and shapes right and providing durable construction.

Many of the roofs we restore are on buildings listed either as National Historic Landmarks or historic places on the Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Places. The Secretary of the Interior nominates landmarks whereas state preservation offices nominate historic places — both signify that a property is part of our history and worth preserving for future generations to enjoy.

We have restored historic roofs on places of worship, plantations, private homes and public facilities including colleges, courthouses and museums. You can find our work from Hawaii to South Carolina and from Florida to Wisconsin.

CASE STUDIES

We performed one of our most notable roof restorations on America's first fireproof building: a National Historic Landmark located in Charleston, South Carolina. Currently the home of the South Carolina Historical Society, upon its construction in 1827, this building was designed to house public records for the city of Charleston. As a result, a fireproof roof was an important priority. Our team was able to restore this aging building to its former glory by adding modern updates that enhance its overall integrity without compromising its stately Doric-inspired architecture.

Huber & Associates was honored to perform a historical roof restoration on the Biltmore Estate, the largest private home in the United States and easily one of the most famous residences in the country. The Biltmore, located in Asheville, NC, is notable for its Châteauesque-style architecture, which features an eye-catching copper roof.

Following a metallurgical analysis, our team determined that large sections of the roof would require rebuilding. To preserve its historical accuracy, we hand-formed 988 individual copper components to create a brand-new ridge. See the results for yourself in our blog post detailing the process.

We have had the pleasure to provide historic preservation and restoration for the following:
