About Five Saints Distillery

Five Saints Distillery is a microbrewery, bar, and distillery located just blocks from the Schuylkill River in the heart of historic Norristown, PA. Built in 1888, their building originally housed Humane Fire Engine Co. #1. Five Saints Distillery has done a great job retaining the character of this historic structure, and regularly gives tours of the firehouse and their distillery operations.

Condition of the Roof


John contacted CityScapes Commercial Roofing because the existing metal roof was showing signs of wear and was leaking into their distillery operation.


On our initial inspection of the historic building’s roof, we found a metal roof with several layers of coatings. Because of the relatively good condition of the metal roof, we recommended a metal restoration system that would provide a waterproof coating. 

Finished Results

Our first step was to remove the prior metal coatings, which we were able to do with a pressure washer. Then we cleaned and primed the metal roof, caulked the seams, and applied our waterproof polyurethane topcoat across the entire roof. 


This roof is now totally leak-free. Due to the white coating, the roof will not retain heat like before, which should cut down on the distillery’s energy costs. This roof is now ready to continue the fire station’s proud history for decades to come. 

“Allen and his team were very professional and applied their knowledge and skills to repair and restore our roof beautifully. He inspected the roof thoroughly, shared recommendations and their rationale, and gave an honest quote, and kept his word on services, quality of workmanship, and timeline. You cannot have a well-kept building without a well-kept and functioning roof. We absolutely recommend CityScapes for a state-of-the-art roof using advanced materials. Thank you CityScapes!”
