Stanley Hotel Roof Repair

Red ShinglesWe recently had the honor of completing a hotel roof repair on the iconic Stanley Hotel.  This historic building is an important piece of Colorado’s rich history and it was our distinct privilege to breathe new life into the existing roof. The success of this project hinged on our team’s ability to work together and problem solve every step of the way. Let’s take a closer look at what made this project so unique and the legendary building our efforts helped to restore.

We were contacted by the Stanley Hotel when they discovered water leakage resulting from damage to their roof. Upon a closer inspection we found a leak in the elevator shaft, and that they were in need of woodshake shingle replacement and painting to match. At Elite Roofing we understand that projects like this require special attention to detail. Restoring the beauty of historic buildings is one of the most rewarding things we do. Ensuring that we stay true to the aesthetic appeal of the building while adhering to modern building code standards is a challenge we are always eager to take on. Today the leak has been repaired and the risk of damage to the beautiful Stanley Hotel has been mitigated. This beautiful piece of Colorado history will continue to pique our interest and capture our imaginations about its rich history for decades to come.

A Brief History of the Stanley Hotel

The Stanley Hotel first opened in 1909. Built by husband and wife Freelan Oscar and Flora Stanley, the hotel was intended to be a luxurious getaway in the beautiful Estes Valley. Freelan first visited the area in 1903 suffering from the symptoms of consumption. After just one season in the valley, his health began to restore. He vowed at that time to return every summer. Accustom to the luxuries of the metropolitan life on the East Coast, Freelan and Flora decided to open a hotel that would introduce sophistication to the Estes Valley.

The inspiration for Author Stephen King’s The Shining, the hotel is famous for not only its grandeur but its folklore. The property has undergone several renovations to restore it to its former glory. Just an hour outside of Denver, the Stanley Hotel is a favorite destination for Coloradans and tourists alike.
