The newly built home is appx. 25,000 square feet and the remediation scopes were highly technical. After the mold remediation and investigation phases, this project required the removal and reinstallation of the failed exterior vertical wall barrier, stucco cladding system, windows and doors, roofing system, and all elevated decks (including new drainage plane, drains, waterproofing membranes and stone toppings). We completely rebuilt the exterior envelope to ensure the watertight integrity of this beautiful estate home.
At this home we were chosen to provide construction services that include; leak investigation, structural repairs at precast columns, elevated deck repairs and waterproofing, window and door replacement, railing refinishing, electrical and plumbing modifications, faux painting and other areas of repair and restoration.
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.
Water intrusion due to unsealed planter box assemblies necessitated the following emergency scopes of work here at this hospital. We removed the steel trellis, stone caps on the planter walls, handrail assembly and roof pavers pedestal system. We replaced the EPDM with modified bitumen roof system to complete this project and stop the water intrusion.
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.
