This private residence, built in 1912, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The owner, Dr. T.S Park, is a world-renowned neurosurgeon who specializes in a unique, pediatric surgical procedure called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and has performed the surgery on over 3,700 children and 130 adults. Dr. Park is known as “The Guardian of Childhood” by many around the world.
After a severe hailstorm, which caused major damage to the residence and carriage house multi-colored Vermont Slate roof and copper dormers, the owner contacted Renaissance Roofing, Inc. to assess the condition and propose a common-sense scope of work that satisfied the clients needs.
Renaissance Roofing, Inc. provided 20 squares matching reclaimed 18” x 9” x ¼” Vermont Multi-colored Slate (the blend being a Vermont non-fading green, Vermont semi-weathering green and a Vermont Royal Purple with other sporadic slates mixed in). Each slate sourced from a salvage in the Midwest was inspected for defects and ultimately used for the Park slate re-roofing project. This process of picking up and relaying the existing slate roof was only one portion of the full scope of work to be completed by our crew.
The complete slate roof restoration of Park roof also included the fabrication of custom 20oz. copper flashings and counter flashings, a new 6” European Style Gutter system with downspouts and a large and intricate 20oz. custom copper radius ridge cresting (or ridge cap) for the main house.
The carriage house included all the above-mentioned flashings, counter flashings, gutters and as well as a fully soldered flat seam copper roof on the carriage house dormers.
