Raymond Engineering was retained to address the issues of the removal of existing shingles and modified bitumen roofing, installation of new architectural shingles, cold process modified bitumen roof system, gutters and downspouts. Additionally, correct underground drainage issues.
We were initially retained to perform a roof evaluation survey to evaluate the existing condition of the roof assembly. After the report submission, Raymond Engineering developed plans and specifications for the re-roofing of the facility and provided construction administration and part time quality assurance inspection services.
We developed a closure between a lower and copper roof that would provide ventilation to the attic space, minimize any disturbance of lead paint, and provide a watertight detail. The underground drainage system at the front of the building had negative slope and was clogged. We re-designed the drainage system to resolve this problem. Work had to be performed on this facility which had numerous historical artifacts on display.
