Description: Removed the existing slate and built-up roofing materials. Installed Architectural grade Vermont slate with random widths. Included is an area with a conical shape that now has slate installed. On the flat areas, we installed tapered insulation set in insulation adhesive and a fully adhered thermoplastic membrane. All sheet metal details for the slate roofs are from copper sheets. All sheet metal details were fabricated from thermoplastic coated galvanized steel sheets. New half round copper gutters and copper downspouts were installed.
