Flemington Roof Replacement and Historic Restoration Cover

Located on Main Street in Flemington, New Jersey, the historical society building of Hunterdon County stands as a testament to the area’s rich heritage. Over the years, the building had undergone several renovations to maintain its charm and historical significance. However, a previous contractor’s improper installation had led to the premature failure of the copper roof within just two years. To rectify the situation, the expertise of Alte Exteriors was enlisted to replace the failed copper roof with a white energy-efficient EPDM roof system, while carefully preserving the building’s timeless appeal. As part of this restoration effort, Alte Exteriors installed custom fabricated copper edging around the perimeter of the roofline, ensuring a seamless blend of functionality and aesthetics.

Flemington Roof – The Challenge of Improper Installation:

The failed copper roof was a disappointment for the historical society and the local community. Improper installation techniques, such as inadequate flashing, improper soldering, and subpar workmanship, led to leaks, corrosion, and premature deterioration. The situation demanded immediate action to not only restore the building’s structural integrity but also uphold its historical authenticity.

Flemington Roof – Alte Exteriors Steps In:

Recognized for their expertise in historical restoration projects, Alte Exteriors was contracted to replace the failed copper roof. Their goal was to provide a durable, energy-efficient roofing system while preserving the building’s unique character. To ensure energy efficiency on this Flemington roof replacement and historic restoration, Alte Exteriors proposed the installation of an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) roof system. EPDM is a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane known for its exceptional weather resistance, insulation properties, and longevity. The white EPDM roof would reflect sunlight, reducing heat absorption and minimizing the building’s cooling requirements, thus improving its energy efficiency.

Preserving Historical Charm: Failed Copper Roof

While the copper roof had failed prematurely, the historical society wanted to retain the building’s charm and character. To achieve this, Alte Exteriors proposed the installation of custom fabricated copper edging around the roofline. This would serve as a nod to the building’s original copper roof while providing a seamless transition between the EPDM roofing system and the building’s architectural elements. The custom copper edging would be meticulously crafted to match the building’s historical aesthetic, ensuring a harmonious blend of old-world charm and modern functionality.
