Roof Scapes

The number one priority of the Phase I restoration work was to put a sound roof over the house.   The new black EPDM roof presents a strong contrast to the rusty, alligatored, and puckered skin of its predecessor.   As you can see below, the roof planes are now clean and straight, allowing water to easily run off the roof rather than puddle up and work their way into the building interior.  The chimney bases have been boxed in and flashed in preparation for their reconstruction in later restoration phases.  In a future phase of restoration, this temporary roof surface will be replaced with a new coated copper roof.

In contrast the matte black of the roofing membrane,  the  shiny galvanized gutter systems and copper flashing jump out at you  A little bling is not necessarily a bad thing…
