Historical Roof Restoration Services

Chew Bittel Associates has been a leader in roofing services since 1887. Serving Southern PA and the Greater Philadelphia area, we continue the tradition by preserving the beauty of historic buildings through our roof restoration services.

Living in a historical building adds a certain flair. Sadly, old roofs always come with problems. From leaks to structural wear, these issues need to be fixed so the building keeps its original aesthetic.

This is where our skills really shine. We’re not just contractors—we’re guardians of history with over a century of experience. We’ll make sure that your roof restoration is done with the care and accuracy that can only come from years of experience.

Why Historical Roof Restoration?

People often say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But when it comes to the roof over your head, especially in an old building, not all problems are obvious at first glance. That’s why we always recommend having your roof inspected.

Once we know the extent of the damage or wear, we can begin the restoration work. Our team matches the original roofing materials and techniques, ensuring the restored roof retains its historical significance.

Our Approach

First, we identify the original materials used for the roofing. To maintain the original appearance to the best of our abilities, we use materials like slate, cedar, wood siding, and copper wherever possible.


However, we recognize the importance of modern technology and provide alternatives such as synthetic slate and cedar, aluminum or steel for standing seam roofs, and composite materials for wood trims. 

We also add modern touches that go with the old-fashioned look of your building and roof. Notably, we use Coppercraft for historical metal details. For structural elements like columns and posts, we turn to trusted names like Mid-America, FYPON, and Fairways.
