Roofing for Triple-Decker Houses

Boston’s Historic and Iconic Residential Buildings

Boston is renowned for its rich architectural history, and the iconic triple-decker houses have been a distinguishing part of this city’s landscape for over a century. The team at Crown Contracting is highly skilled in roofing three-decker houses.

What is a Triple-Decker House?

A Triple-Decker, also known as a three-family house or three-decker, is a three-story residential building that houses three separate apartment units, one on each floor. These distinct houses, easily identified by their stacked porches, became incredibly popular in Boston and the surrounding regions during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They were designed to accommodate the city’s growing population of working-class families and immigrants.

Roofing Materials Used on a Triple-Decker House

When it comes to triple-decker houses, the choice of roofing material can play a significant role in maintaining the house’s aesthetics and functionality. Here are some common materials:

Asphalt Shingles

Economical and durable, asphalt shingles are a traditional choice, providing an attractive look that complements the historic nature of these buildings.

EPDM Roofing

This synthetic rubber roofing material is known for its durability and weather resistance, making it an excellent choice for flat-roofed triple-deckers.
