The historic clock tower in Westminster, Maryland, stands as a symbol of the town’s rich heritage and is a beloved landmark for locals and tourists alike. Built in 1879 as a firehouse, it’s an iconic part of the town.
In an ambitious move to preserve its legacy, the community rallied behind a comprehensive restoration plan and called upon Cole Roofing Company and other specialty contractors to save the structure.
Suffering from age, water damage and deterioration, and some unfortunate vandalism, the Tower’s condition was a cause for concern among residents and businesses. There was some worry that the structure might even collapse. The roof was damaged, and the tower roof area was leaking.
Cole’s professional team intricately repaired the slate, replaced copper panels, and installed roofing materials, barriers, and sealants to prevent further leakage.
Stop by 66 East Main Street this coming Fall weekend to view our handiwork. Cole Roofing is proud to have been a part of the rescue of this significant architectural structure.
