2018 Gold Award Winner

Cincinnati Music Hall renovation

Cincinnati Music Hall

The Cincinnati Music Hall is considered one of the largest and most beautiful concert halls and theaters in the world. It has played host to iconic performances and events for more than a century. Yet the doors on the 225,000-square-foot facility had been closed for over a year to allow for a complex interior and exterior restoration effort.

The Music Hall roof had been adorned with high-end slate tiles. Cost made replacing the slate prohibitive, but the ability to replicate the slate look was of utmost importance. In addition, the new roof had to be durable enough to withstand harsh Cincinnati weather. In the end, CertainTeed’s Grand Manor® luxury asphalt shingles were used to replicate the roof’s slate aesthetic. To provide additional protection against the elements, DiamondDeck® and WinterGuard® underlayments were also installed.

The install by Imbus Roofing Co. was impeccable and the final results were worthy of a world renowned music venue and top prize in the 2018 ARMA awards.
