This building dates back to the early 1950’s and was a unique combination of 6 or 7 structures which were combined into one building during a previous renovation. We were contracted to test and evaluate the exterior envelope and wall system integrity. We developed a team of experts to evaluate and specify the renovation scope which ultimately included demolition, substantial exterior structural steel wall upgrades, fireproofing, waterproofing, insulation upgrades, exterior stucco cladding upgrades and architectural enhancements to the exterior façade of the building.
Over the past 20 years we have performed many scopes of work to keep these buildings standing tall. At the waterside elevations, the majority of the work is performed off barges. Currently we are working on wood trim repairs at window surrounds and shutter replacements.
This multi-story home exhibited numerous balcony leaks and localized structural damage. Beachfront environments can take a toll on building construction elements.

The exterior envelope of this home was in need of extensive repair due to various failure profiles associated with the construction. Numerous areas exhibited severe deterioration while other locations exhibited various degrees of degradation. Some areas were in an accelerated stage of structural failure, none of which would have been anticipated from a home of this age. The deterioration discovered during the reconstruction process was dramatic.
The elevated balcony deck at this home failed as the result of poor workmanship. The deck itself did have a waterproof coating, but the stucco and stone was applied over the drip edge effectively blocking the water channel which allowed the water to seep behind the stucco and into the substrate materials and eventually into the interior of the home.
Estate Home Forensic Analysis – Throughout the process of excavating the exterior layers of stucco cladding, stone deck topping, railing details, roof tiles, roof sheeting, and flashings at this estate home, we discovered a considerable amount of severely deteriorated substrates including; stucco and lath materials, plywood sheeting and framing members. This deterioration is an indication of severe and long-term water intrusion.
