The existing single-family dwelling is a two-story, frame house with novelty siding, a hip roof and symmetrical fenestration.  The roof has composition shingles in a diamond pattern.  The house is a contributing structure that was built in 1916 according to the Florida Master Site File.  The property is zoned Urban 6 and is approximately 0.24 acres in size.  The house is approximately 2,947 square feet in total area and 2,528 square feet in heated area.  The proposal would replace the shingle roof with an exposed fastener metal roof.  The proposed roofing is a 26 gauge 5V crimp style roof in Galvalume from GulfCoast Supply & Manufacturing. 


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.  Noting the mix of roof types in the University Heights Historic District - North, the proposed metal roofing is compatible with the neighborhood.
