Trautman Associates has provided design services for hundreds of roof repair/replacement projects for the New York State Office of General Services and its clients. At the Masten Avenue Armory in Buffalo, we have have provided architectural and civil/structural design for all the roofs with the exception of the barrel roof over the main building. For this most recent project, we're designing a new roofing system as well as exterior wall repairs for the FMS #1 Cold Storage Building.
This project involves complete removal and replacement of the existing corrugated metal roofing with a new standing seam metal roof assembly to match the adjacent building standing metal seam roof profile. Work includes installation of a new metal deck, sub-base plywood sheathing, ice and water shield and all associated flashings and trim. A continuous row of snow guards will be installed on the sloped roof on the west elevation. Abatement of asbestos-containing materials within the existing roofing system is also required.
We will also design and add a metal-clad soffit assembly to extend the eave on the east and west elevations with a heavy-duty gutter, down spouts and splash blocks to provide protection from possible roof leaks that usually occur when the roof edge is flush with the exterior wall. We'll also add a clad-metal soffit assembly along the roof rake on the south elevation.
