Title
Reroof a duplex dwelling with a metal roof and add windows on north elevation (B)

Petition HP-21-24. Lily R. Lewis, owner. Certificate of Appropriateness to reroof an existing duplex with a metal roof and add windows to the north elevation. Located at 517 NE 4th Street. This building is contributing to the Northeast Residential Historic District.

The applicant is requesting the removal of the existing shingle roofing system and renail wood deck to code and replace with a 1 inch standing seam metal roof, 26 gauge with non-painted panels and concealed fasteners over Rhino underlayment. The panels will have a mill finish (silver)
