118 Jefferson St., Huntsville, AL

Constructed in 1948, the 118 Jefferson St. building (building with the Trustmark logo) is a historic bank located in the heart of downtown Huntsville, AL. One of the only Art Moderne-style buildings in Huntsville, the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Today, the property is owned and operated by the Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group and is home to Trustmark Bank.

Proactively Navigating Potential Challenges

As a local commercial roofing contractor in Huntsville, AL the team at Maxwell Roofing was excited about the opportunity to work on one of the most architecturally significant buildings in downtown Huntsville. The historic bank building is located on the corner of the courthouse square, with hundreds of customers and pedestrians passing by each day.

When the property management team at Crunkleton recognized the building needed a new roof, they partnered with the Maxwell Roofing team. The Maxwell Roofing team worked with the bank and property management company to execute a game plan that would cause the least impact on the bank’s day-to-day operations. This included developing a detailed project schedule and implementing safety and noise control measures.

In less than three weeks, Maxwell Roofing was able to navigate logistical challenges and complete the reroofing project for the 6,200-square-foot building.

Preserving the Building’s Interior History

In order to protect the structural integrity of the building, Maxwell Roofing installed a fully adhered roofing system which was installed directly onto the roof deck using adhesives. This was particularly important for this project, because it allowed the building to maintain the original roofline. It also minimized alterations to the building’s aesthetics and protected the structure from water intrusion that could lead to structural deterioration or damage to valuable artifacts or documents.
