Preserve your historic Boise home's roof, while still saving the building's heritage

Preservation of historic homes is not just about maintaining a structure, it's also about making sure the authentic look of the home stays in tact. Among the crucial aspects of a timeless architecture is the roof - a sentinel standing guard against the elements, preserving the story beneath.

Boise's historic homes, many of which date back to the early 20th century, feature a variety of roofing styles and materials, from classic shingles to ornate tiles. These materials were not just chosen for their aesthetic appeal but also for their functionality in the local climate.

Challenges in Preserving Historic Roofs

Restoring or maintaining these historic roofs comes with its set of challenges:

  • Finding Authentic Materials

    Modern materials often don't match the historic fabric of these old roofs.
  • Balancing Modern Standards with Historical Integrity

    Meeting current building codes while preserving the original look can be a tightrope walk.
  • Skill and Expertise

    It requires artisans skilled in old-world craftsmanship.


  • Replication with Modern Materials

    Advances in roofing materials mean we can now replicate historic looks with longer-lasting, more durable materials.
  • Custom Fabrication

    Many roofing companies specialize in custom fabrication to match historical designs.
  • Modern Techniques for Enhanced Longevity

    Modern waterproofing techniques can be subtly integrated to protect these timeless structures.

Working with the Right Roofing Partner

Choosing the right roofing partner is crucial. They should not only possess the skills but also a deep respect for Boise's history. They should understand the balance between preserving authenticity and ensuring functionality.

Roofing a historic home in Boise is not just a construction task; it’s a commitment to preserving a piece of our city’s soul. With the right approach, materials, and expertise, these roofs can continue to tell their stories for generations to come.

“I worked with Owyhee Roofing after getting an outrageous estimate on replacing my roof from someone else. They were responsive within one day, and got to work on estimating and scheduling right away. My roof looks beautiful. I worked with Austin and his team. They were professional, punctual, and very respectful of the property and the clean-up afterward. Highly recommend!”
