Project Description
Because of age, antiquated design details, and long-term exposure to cyclical climate extremes, much of the building envelope has been damaged and is in need of repair or replacement. The deterioration of the roofing systems, storm water control systems, wood framed operable windows with single pane glazing, sealants and masonry/grout erosion has led to air infiltration and moisture migration complications throughout the building.

Work includes:
Remove existing wood and metal-framed single glazed windows.
Furnish and install wood or aluminum clad wood window units with double glazed insulated glass.
Clean and re-point masonry walls and chimneys.
Repair water damaged walls in museum.
Selective demolition and reinstallation of slate tiles and copper flashing on sloped roof.
Remove existing membrane roofing system.
Furnish and install tapered roof insulation and EPDM roofing system and pavers.
Remove existing gutters and downspouts.
Furnish and install copper gutters and downspouts.
