Federal Historic Exterior Restoration

  • The existing stone portion of the building was structurally sound.
  • The roof was neglected for decades resulting in structural failure due to the water damage.
  • After the roof was made structurally sound, we replaced all the fascia and crown molding trim at the eves.
  • We added a layer of plywood to create a smooth surface to accept the Vermont Greenstone Slate shingles, lead coated copper flashings and aluminum ice dams.
  • We removed all of the existing windows, made all of the repairs to the damaged areas around the windows and installed the new JeldWen windows.
  • We removed all of the exterior doors, made repairs to the doors and reinstalled the doors with new hardware.
  • Then we painted all of the woodwork on the exterior of the building.
  • The interior needed massive renovation including re-plastering nearly all of the walls and ceilings and several floors needed to be completely rebuilt.
  • And to bring everything up to code, we removed a window, installed a new door and provided a handicap accessible ramp to the building.
