The Governor's Mansion in Bexley, Ohio, is the official residence of the Governor of Ohio. It is a large, stately mansion located in the suburb of Bexley, just outside of Columbus. The mansion was built in the early 20th century and has been the home of Ohio's governors since 1957. It is a beautiful and historic building, featuring elegant architecture and landscaped grounds. The mansion is open to the public for tours on certain days of the week, and it is often used for official events and ceremonies. It is an important part of the state's history and serves as a symbol of the office of the Governor.
Our craftsmen installed a new underlayment and replaced damaged slate across the entire roof. The Ohio Governor’s Residence was designed by Columbus architect Robert Gilmore Hanford and completed in 1925, as the residence for industrialist, Malcolm Jeffrey. Since 1957, it has been the residence for the last nine Ohio governors. Our work has included several projects including replacing the entire slate roof with new Vermont slate, new copper gutters and downspouts, and replacing existing rubber roofs with soldered, lock-seamed copper roofs. Our most recent project was assisting in the installation of solar panels into the slate roof, for which the residence received the 2005 AIA Leadership in Building Design Award.
