Since the fall of 2016, Renaissance Roofing has been hard at work restoring the historic roof at the Cascade County Courthouse in Great Falls, Montana. Much of the project involves the remanufacture and installation of the ornate copper metalwork on the 115-year old, three-story English Renaissance Revival structure.
Last week, a news crew from local station KFBB captured the final steps in installation of new copper balusters. You can view their story here.
Cascade County Commissioner Jane Weber was interviewed, and expressed confidence in the progress of the project, saying, “we expect this roof to easily last 85 to 100 years. We have a lot of critical things inside this building… beautiful architecture we’re going to be protecting for another 100 years.”
Completion of the project is expected in early 2018, and will include restoration of the centerpiece of the structure – the striking copper dome which rests on a series of supporting columns. Check back to our blog in coming months for more updates on this exciting project!
