The Primary Project goals were to remedy façade element deterioration due to moisture infiltration, and animal damage, increase the envelope energy efficiency, and prevent animal entry into concealed areas of the building and to reduce the potential for future deterioration.
Project scope included replacement of the wood siding and insulation and wood fascia system at the 1992 addition. The design of the rainscreen cladding system required a stand-off arrangement to carry the wood furring / nailers for the fiber cement siding to allow for spray-foam continuous insulation. Animal and insect entry into the wall and soffit systems is prevented with perforated metal barriers at all potential cladding entry points.
Project scope also included replacement of the wood fascia cladding, and repairs to the soffit cladding at the 1974 original building and miscellaneous interior repairs due to moisture infiltration and animal entry.
