Copper Installation by the Pros
Copper is both resilient and beautiful while making a statement on homes. Our residential crew recently finished a copper bay window that was damaged by hail in the Fox Valley Area and their work is nothing short of perfection.
The first thing the crew had to do was remove the original damaged copper and lay down new plywood. The edges of the bay window were then sealed to maintain the integrity of the structure while also securing the plywood to the home below to make sure that it is a sturdy base for the copper sheets.
Next the crew added the waterproofing underlayment and then sealed the bottom edges with copper trim. This helps to create a good seal for preventing water from making contact with the plywood.
The crew put on the copper layers and crimped the edges to secure the panels to each other and onto the waterproof layer underneath. They then had to insure that the seams were covered and ready for flashing. It may seem like a lot of work, but every step is deliberate to prevent water incursions, keeping the structure dry and tough.
The crew then added flashing to obtain a flush fit with the brick work of the home, and a counter flashing piece was cut and fastened to the edge. Not only is it one more piece of the waterproofing, it also complemented the style of the home.
At the very end, all details were checked one last time, and all debris was removed. Not every home in Sugar Grove would benefit from a copper bay window, but for those that do, our crew is ready to make your home shine.
