ALL SAINTS’ EPISCOPAL CHURCH, FREDERICK, MD
- All Saints Episcopal originally asked us to only repair their steeple, as they had some missing slates, and the wooden dormers were rotten and needed some paint. Once inside the steeple, we discovered that the slates were glued down to each other, making them impossible to replace. Adding insult to injury, untreated, long-term leaks had caused some of the wood to rot.
- Once the scaffolding was up, we removed the roof, dried it in, and replaced all the rotten wood. We restored all the damaged masonry elements – we used lime mortar to tuckpoint the joints, and a historic stone patch to repair the damaged stones. We then installed a new North Country Black Slate roof with all new copper flashings.
