Cloisters Community New Metal Roof

The Cloisters community was built in 1970 and is situated in Mt. Adams, and HKC had the privilege to recently complete it’s new metal roof! The Frank-Lloyd Wright, style of architecture, is best displayed through it’s many roof lines and complex angles, allowing for some of the best river views in the city. To top it off, the entire structure is built on telephone poles!

Our work included removing the old, orange metal roof before installing a new batten-seam metal roof system. This roof was fabricated 100% in-house, using 24 gauge sheet metal. All of the panels were primed on the underside before shipping to the job site. This additional step was done to ensure maximum longevity, once installed. All details were hand-fabricated and soldered. The client selected a traditional, “Tinners-Red” paint color to finish the project. This project took a total of 8 months to complete.
