First United Methodist Church

Location: Lancaster, Ohio

With its stunning cupola, this church has been a landmark since it was built in 1905. Originally guaranteed for eighty years, the cupola showed obvious signs of leaking and deterioration when we took on the project to completely replicate it along with its supporting wood structure and have it installed for the church’s centennial celebration. Judges for the National Roofing Contractors Association awarded the 2006 Gold Circle Award to us for this complex project, which also included a custom gutter system, tile roof restoration and restoring the stained glass below the cupola.
