The existing single-family dwelling is a two-story non-contributing structure that was built in 2000 according to the Alachua County Property Appraiser’s data.  The property is zoned Urban 2 and is approximately 0.31 acres in size.  The house is approximately 4,880 square feet in total area, 3,557 square feet in heated area.  The proposal is to install a Tri County Metals TCM-LOK ribbed standing seam metal roof over the existing single-layer shingle roof.  This is a hidden fastener system that will have 24 gauge Galvalume panels. 


Roofs are a highly visible component of historic buildings and are an integral part of a building’s overall design and architectural style.  The Historic Preservation Board discussed and adopted a policy on April 2, 2013 concerning styles of metal roofing which would be allowed within the historic districts.  The Historic Preservation Board approves metal roofing on a case-by-case basis depending on the style and use of the building.  Recommended metal roofing for most buildings in the historic district is a 5-V crimp or standing seam metal, as spacing of these roofs is more sympathetic with historic metal roofs, and exposed fasteners are not as numerous or visible.
