First settled by the Algonquian Indians in the early 16th century this farming community eventually was, like many colonial Virginia settlements, Falls Church Virginia begun as a “neighborhood” of large land grant plantations anchored by an Anglican church. That church became known as Falls Church and was on the main trade route that came from Little Falls on the Potomac River. In 1769 a stone church designed by James Wren replaced the wooden original building and it still stands on its original site between S. Washington, E. Broad, and E. Fairfax Streets. Alpha Rain has been providing Falls Church Metal Roofing since 1995.
Not far from where George Mason and George Washington served as vestrymen in this Anglican Church there is a small road called Little Falls Church Rd. where a civil war era plantation house has recently under gone an extensive renovation and now sports a beautiful standing seam metal roof pre-painted one of the three colors available over 100 years ago, matte black. Even though this roof looks historically accurate it actually has some very modern upgrades that help the newly enhanced home maintain its historical heritage while helping the home maintain its incredible energy efficiency. This roof like all of our metal roofing products is top notch and provides our metal roofing customers with a roof that will last up to 150+ years.
Just like Julia Ward Howe, who used an old tune put to new words (The Battle Hymn of the Republic) to give new meaning to a tragic war, this old home in Virginia has kept its “bones” but received a new “skin”. If you visit Falls Church Metal Roofing, you can see where she started this historic anthem right around the corner from this beautiful home on Upton Hill.
If we were daring enough to go up in one of the first artillery baloons like aeronaut Thaddeus S. C. Lowe of the Union Army Balloon Corps, we would see Taylor’s Tavern at Seven Corners and we could visualize what that must have looked like over 150 years ago, however, if you want to visualize your home with a metal roof on it you won’t have to imagine it because we can actually superimpose any color roof on your house. We, at Alpha Rain, would be happy to give directions to the many historical and contemporary homes we have been involved with in the beautiful Falls Church Virginia community where we installed our premier Falls Church Metal Roofing energy efficient metal roofing systems.
