Beautiful Craftsmanship

More progress to report on the Tudor-style beauty on Capitol Hill whose porch roof had fallen into disrepair. As the project nears completion, one can see the craftsmanship on full display, before being covered with paint. With fir beams, copper flashing, and new roofing with proper overflow scuppers, this roof will last.

The custom shaped beam ends all have copper cap flashing to protect the wood.

This concrete cap replaces the failed caps on the north porch of the house. After an acid wash and a little aging it will look like the original.

Stewardship and repair of a Tudor-style house

We have been assisting longstanding clients for many years with the stewardship of their beautiful Tudor-style home. This summer the porch roof on the patio needed replacing, due to age and poor detailing.

With the help of Saltaire Construction, the failing portions were carefully removed, and reconstruction has begun. We are in the process of replacing structural elements and building an entire new roof. The details will all match the original work, but with updated materials and methods of construction, including upgrading the waterproofing, so this roof can last well into the future.

The previous beam was only attached to the house with four nails and lacked proper flashing.

The beams spanned to a brick column. You can see there the unfleshed roof allowed water to rot the beams to the point where they were falling out.

Entry walk nears completion

The custom guard rail is a great stylistic match to the original with advantage of steel for strength and durability.

The entry walk is really a bridge to the house.
