The Historic Capitol Reroof
The historic Capitol, which had been restored ten years earlier, suffered from serious water damage during the ensuing years. The perimeter gutter system at the base of the dome had been covered over, which caused the rain to corrode the existing ornamental metal work. MLD designed a new copper gutter system and balustrade to correct the problem, and replaced the badly corroded copper urns. The existing shingle roof was replaced, deteriorated windows repaired and sealed, and the original mortise and tenon construction was shored up. Following the exterior renovation, the damaged interior areas were restored.
