Raising the Roof

We were privileged to be chosen for the roof restoration at the Chapel of Roses, the architectural masterpiece by Francis Harvey Slocombe, and designer of the legendary Mapes Hotel in Reno. It features an organically shaped bell tower, an undulating, Storybook roof with huge dormers, and an abundance of stained glass windows. Great care was taken to match every detail of the historic roof from 1920’s, with patterned to sometimes erratic undulations of the wave coursing, and by steam-bending nearly every area of the roof, including the eaves, gables, ridges, hips and valleys. The end result is truly spectacular.
