President James Buchanan's Wheatland Roof Replacement

Taking on a historic preservation project and restoring a beloved local property like the James Buchanan Wheatland house is an honor for Benchmark Construction. Preserving the home’s roof and structural features was also a huge responsibility and, like all preservation projects, came with challenges. Our team spent four months restoring Wheatland’s roof structure, chimneys, and other exterior features, including window sashes and flashing. Most of the materials used were sourced to be historically accurate to the materials used to construct Wheatland in 1828.
