Here are some photos of the portico restoration project I just finished. I used
the same process described in Window Repair. The client was very pleased with the results.
They said that one contractor who looked at the job was talking about rebuilding
the entire portico!
It has a copper roof which leaked through screw holes which fastened the iron railing... they weren't bedded. I coated all similar areas with a clear-very sticky calk called "Through the Roof".
|The photos start with CPES applied to cleaned out rotten areas. Epoxy-surrounded wood blocks along with epoxy-soaked sawdust was used to fill in the voids. The plastic-backed sheetrock helped reform the original curve and minimise trimming.|
