Name: Copper Gutter Replacement & Restoration
Location: Milwaukee – Upper East Side
Problem: The home needed the copper gutters replaced, and additionally restored trim and woodwork details surrounding the roof and gutters.
Solution Provided: First we started by removing the roof’s EPDM lining, underlying metal, and termination bars of built in gutters. Once removed our team inspected for any damage. The gutters needed to be re-pitched so the water would drain into the downspouts . On the sides of the home there were wooden brackets and rafter tails all rotting and in need of restoration. We restored these wooden details by using Abatron Wood Restoration 2 Part Epoxy repair solution, and when each one was restored to its desired shape they were then primed and painted to match the existing ones. We installed a Grace Ice and Water Barrier over the built in gutter trough and covered it with red rosin paper slip sheet. Then, installed with rivets and solder, we put the custom bend gutter liner made from 16 oz copper. Next we cut outlets and drain into existing downspouts. To finish this project our team sealed and caulked all of the seams and edges.
