Spadina House is a spectacular historic manor located on Spadina Road in Toronto, built between the years of 1866 and 1913. Once a residential property, it is now owned by the City of Toronto. Today, it is operated as a museum that serves to educate visitors about what life would have been like for an early 20th century family.
In recent years, the historic Spadina House has undergone a complete transformation of both its interior and exterior. Great care was taken to preserve its unique architectural features, which reflect many notable styles including Victorian, Edwardian, Arts and Crafts, Art Deco and more.
All parts of this estate were revived in conjunction with the home’s renovation, including its beautiful gardens and outbuildings. When the City of Toronto needed re-roofing on the property’s stable building, Heather & Little looked forward to working on this architecturally significant structure.
Cedar Shingle Re-Roofing
Our craftsmen installed #1 Grade Blue Label Western Red cedar shingles in place of the existing cedar roof, which had become deteriorated over time. Heather & Little also provided new copper flashings and lead-coated copper valleys, and also installed custom-made eavestrough and downpipes for a fully functional cedar roofing system that will last for many years to come.
