German Village is one of Columbus’ most note worth areas. Originally started in 1814, German Village became a thriving settlement area for German immigrants of the mid 1800s. Most who settled there did so because the culture that was created was that of a small home-away-from-home. Everyone in the are spoke German, worked with each other, and created a small piece of Germany right here in Columbus.
The brick streets and small shops that exist today are a constant reminder of the working class people who made this great area what it is today. Historical buildings still stand proudly after 100+ years, and keeping those building accurate is a big part of maintaining this area’s mystique.
One of the main things involved in preserving this historical area is maintaining the exterior of the buildings themselves, and keeping those maintenance items historically accurate.
This is one of the challenges of roofing German Village. There are many types of roofing used in German Village, but making sure to pick the right product to maintain a sense of history is very important. These products can range from asphalt, to tile, to slate roofing. Many different styles are available within each type, and German Village accepts many types of this roofing to be acceptable replacement choices.
Picking the right style is dependent on many factors, including both aesthetic looks and price point. We at Great Roofing and Restoration can help with selecting the right roofing product for your German Village renovation.
