Historical value

F.J.A. Christiansen Roofing Co. Inc. reroofs a historical Milwaukee courthouse

Built between 1929 and 1938, the Milwaukee County Courthouse is a prominent building in Milwaukee known for its grace and beauty. With towering stone columns outside the building and marble decorating the interior, Milwaukee residents long have appreciated the courthouse for its historical and aesthetic value.

When leaks began to develop because of the roof system's age, the county realized the importance of preserving the historical landmark and called for an evaluation of the building's roof system, which determined the building would need a roof system replacement.

F.J.A. Christiansen Roofing Co. Inc., Milwaukee, a Tecta America company, performed the first reroof on the building about 30 years ago. After participating in a public bid process, the company once again was chosen to install a new roof on the Milwaukee County Courthouse.
