Roof Preservation Project

The ZBOH Association is currently working on a 4 phase project to preserve the original 1883 Russian Tin Roof.

Phases I & II have been completed throughout 2020, 2021 & 2022. These Phases focused on replacing the special hidden gutter system located on the edges of all 4 slanted roof sides along with replacing or repairing all of the down spouts, and repairing or replacing any of the white wood trim located on all 8 sides of the roof on the 2nd and 3rd level of the house. These 2 Phases detailed a labor expense of over 150 hours, and $23,010.04 in total expense. Our income for these 2 Phases were thanks to generous donors thru either a private donation, a special event donation, matching gifts pledged or an in kind labor donation.

Phase III of this Roof Preservation Project has a cost estimated with it to be around $36,900.00. During this phase the metal roof will get a professionally done power wash, will be primed and have kwick kaulk where needed on the standing seams, will be sealed with a rubberized paint material. This Phase is our most expensive Phase to complete, and will only become reality thru generous donors, special event donations, matching gifts and grants.

Phase IV of this Roof Preservation Project has a cost estimated with it to be around $23,184.00. The cupola will be the focus to this Roof Phase. On each of the 8 sides the wood shake shingles will be replaced and the wood behind each wall will be replaced if needed. All 8 of the windows will be assessed and replaced, sealed and painted. The trim on this 3rd level will be replaced and painted. The 1885 Kitchen addition roof will also be fully replaced with a modern metal standing seam roof to match the existing original roof system. Funding for this phase will require special event fundraisers, matching gifts, private donations and $7,000 in grants needed to proceed.
