Overlooking the Mississippi River, Eagle Point Park in Dubuque, Iowa, features 164 acres and views of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. In 2021, the cedar shake roof system on the park’s bridge pavilion was replaced by Paul Meissner Roofing, Dubuque.

The crew removed existing cedar shingles, replaced rotten roof boards, repaired the tower, replaced fascia boards with 100-year-old yellow pine, fabricated cedar shingles into ridge caps and installed 6,000 square feet of Certi-Last® 18-inch red cedar shingles. While working on the project, workers found cans and bottles from 1937 in the soffits.
