BEFORE AND AFTER

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

From the exterior, nothing appeared to be wrong with the cupola or the surrounding roof. Especially since the house was fairly new, only about 10 years old…But the inside of the home was a different story.

SCOPE OF WORK

What needed to be done to get this fixed? Here are a few things we did:

  • Removed the rotted/damaged material
  • Sheathed the base and started on the sill
  • Waterproofed the base
  • Rebuilt the sills out of Boral
  • Installed the aluminum pan flashing

When installing any roof, attention to detail is necessary since there are various types of roofs. To ensure the best result we use the right trade partner.

We rebuilt the cupola’s base in place, salvaging as much of the upper portion as possible. We set up temporary roof protection made from plywood and 2-by stock. After removing the existing peel-and-stick, we found that roughly half of the cupola base’s sheathing and framing was rotted beyond repair.
