On historic buildings, rainwater run off can be the reason for deterioration on foundations and wall surfaces. Before repairs are made to the structure, flashings and guttering systems need to be working properly. Restoration Artisans, LLC offers custom metal work solutions on our historic restoration projects. Properly installed copper flashings will keep water out of the structure. “Euro half-round gutter systems” will divert rain water away and give a distinctive look to the facade.
Sometimes capping woodwork in zinc or copper solves the problem of reaching areas inaccessible to painting on a regular basis. Metal work also adds to the beauty of the historic building while keeping with a traditionally used material from the past.
