Some cities are known for their historic buildings. DC, New York, Charleston, Chicago, etc., all have buildings that have silently watched as time moves forward to the present.
South Tampa also has its fair share of historic buildings. And preserving them is all the more important. According to this article on tbo.com:
Now, two of the most colorful historic buildings in the city are going through major transformations, and you could easily walk past them without knowing. Purists may dispute the names I’m giving them, but let’s just call them 1) the remake of the Franklin building on Franklin Street, and 2) the remake of the Roosevelt 2.0 building in Ybor City. Each one is chock-full of stories about Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, black-and-white movie theaters, urban juice bars, mead brewing bars and much more.
Most of these historic buildings were once frequented commercial establishments. But time and weather may have taken their toll on beautiful structures. To extend the life of these iconic establishments, there is a need to renovate, starting with the roof.
Why the roof? The roof serves as the primary line of defense against the weather. Commercial roofing in South Tampa is an art form as much as construction is concerned.
