The existing single-family dwelling is a one-story frame house with a bungalow character, intersecting gables, and exposed rafters. There is a gable roof with composition shingles and a secondary roof structure for the gable porch, which is decorated with lattice and stickwork. The house is a contributing structure that was built in 1927 according to the Florida Master Site File. The property is zoned Urban 3 and is approximately 0.16 acres in size. The house is approximately 1,193 square feet in total area, 1,089 square feet in heated area.

The existing roof has leaks. The proposal would replace the existing shingle roof with a new 26 gauge standing seam style roofing system, with a Galvalume finish from Tri County Metals (See Exhibit 5). The use of the lighter weight looking roofing system will allow the restoration of a thinner roof drip edge and will help expose the original roof rafter tails and give back the rhythm and interest to the edge of the simple roof system. The owner points out that the house is set off in the trees somewhat separate from nearby homes. The house on the corner of SE 4th Avenue and SE 6th Street is a contributing structure in the district that has a 5V crimp roof.

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.
