Recreating Boston’s history through historical restoration has been John F. Shea’s passion for generations. The roof of an historic building protects the entire structure yet faces the worst from the elements. Our knowledge of techniques, materials and regulations specific to restoring roofs on historical properties allows us to match existing surfaces and architectural detail, recreated to modern standards and specifications.

Restoring historical properties requires special care, skills and materials. Our team of experienced craftsmen works in mediums such as slate and copper to preserve, modernize or restore the roof of your historic property. Their attention to detail ensures the finished restoration honors the original architecture.

Our knowledge of structural preservation requirements and historic protection designations allows us to make sure any repairs and restoration respect and uphold design guidelines, impact to historical detail and designation of archaeological artifact importance.
