Most of roofing’s history has not been archived or written and is dying out as roofing’s workforce continues to age. Our goal with creating the museum was to preserve the history and craftsmanship of roofing so the next generation can appreciate the past and the importance of roofing throughout the ages.

Through our website, we are constantly uploading more content including new artifacts. However, the museum possesses a greater number of artifacts than what is featured online. We believe the total number to be more than 10,000 roofing-related historical pieces.
