Western Roofing received a unique request when asked to reroof the historic Colorado National Guard Armory. Built in 1913, The Armory, as it is known in the area is on the National Registry of Historic Places and stands as an iconic Jefferson County building. Originally designed to be built with brick, cost cutting led the building to be constructed of 6,600 tons of river sourced cobblestone hauled in 3,300 wagonloads to the site.
Because of the historic nature of the building the roof replacement had to go through added review to be accepted, and the interface of the roof with the existing structure had to be approved prior to starting the work. We were honored to be a part of maintaining this historic building to allow it to provide meaningful use for decades to come.
