Investigations discovered that the underlayment had deteriorated and was allowing water into the attic space. The wooden gutter lining had rotted and needed replacement.

The existing clay tiles were tested and found to have significant life left in the materials. Tile roof system was removed and reinstalled after replacing the underlayments. The original manufacturer supplied the project with specialty pieces and additional field tile as needed.

Copper gutters were completely replaced and rescoped to drain more efficiently and incorporate expansion joints. Heat trace system was installed within the gutter and down each leader to below grade.

"Bell & Spina's impeccable credentials as exterior envelope specialists, steadfast attention to detail and unparalleled concern for a quality project, set them apart from other architectural firms."
