At the direction of Amento Group, RCI performed an invasive investigation at this condominium complex in Bellevue. This investigation resulted in a Complete Building Envelope project being performed.
The existing wood siding and WRB was removed. New WRB was installed prior to the installation of new Hardie board siding. All windows and sliding glass doors were replaced, decks and walkways were re-coated and new railing systems were installed. Improved drainage throughout the landscaping. All buildings were re-roofed and new gutters and downspouts were installed.
The project was finished with an updated exterior color scheme as well as new exterior lighting throughout. The photos below represent some before and after photos of the project as well as photo documentation of the invasive investigation.
REVERIE AT MARCATO
This project consisted of target repairs to miscellaneous penetrations throughout the building. Improperly integrated WRB and mis-lapped flashing were in most part the culprit in causing the need for repair. Our crew worked steadily on this project, keeping on track with the tight schedule in needing to have this project completed before the harsh winter weather arrived.
This project wrapped up in the fist quarter of 2016. The building received a full strip and re-clad. All decks were completely rebuilt and windows re-wrapped. Proper flashing was installed as well as new roof fascia and coping. Two stair towers were also rebuilt. Finally, the building received a full re-paint giving the exterior façade of this 1960’s era building a more modern look.
CAMDEN AT HARBOR POINTE
Re-surfaced all the existing waterproof decks. Fabricated new metal rails in our metal fabricated section of the shop and painted in our paint booth. Metal strigers, concrete steps and metal railing had to be removed.
The Bridgeview project originally began as a standard deck renovation project with complete replacement of all deck sheathing and the outdated parapet deck walls. The standard scope of repair was to insure positive deck slope with the application of an Elastomeric Waterproofing Membrane while updating the overall look with new Aluminum Railings.
Upon commencement of the deck project, we uncovered that the structures framing had been deteriorated due to extensive points of water intrusion through failure of installation of the Weather Resistant Barrier and appropriate flashings. The simple deck project had turned to a complete renovation of the exterior: Removing all the existing vinyl and stucco façade and completely rebuilding the decks to current building codes. The structure’s framing and wall sheathing was extensively rebuilt due to the extensiveness of the water intrusion.
Throughout the structural repairs, our team worked closely with a local Engineer and Consultant firm, as well as several meetings held throughout the project with firms based out of the great Northwest; thus, insuring that the best of materials were chosen for installation down to curb appeal. At completion, our clients were extremely happy with what had transformed from what was once an eyesore in the Ballard area to a very modernized, multi-use building that the residents can once again call their home.
HIGHLANDS IN KIRKLAND
We removed and replaced all the damaged siding, re-surfaced all the decks and did a complete re-paint.
Ruff Construction was awarded the contract of the landing project in early 2013, the project consisted of rebuilding eight sets of entry staircases and landings while updating the overall visual appearance of the building.
The project was phased over the course of 3-4 years and in late 2014 our team completed the 3rd and 4th entry stack. The project was especially difficult due to not interrupting the ability to access or depart the 6 homes (per stack) while rebuilding the staircases as well as the application of the Elastomeric waterproofing membrane.
Our crews worked diligently throughout this project with erecting suspended walkways and temporary stairs to not interfere with the resident’s ability to leave or return home.
Made all the necessary repairs to the decks. Waterproofed all the decks with pacific polymers.
This was a complete re-clad/envelope project. We removed and replaced all wood siding for the entire property with Hardie board siding, as well as removed and replaced the vast majority of windows with wrap detail. We also removed and replaced all the WRB and did a complete repaint. Re-surfacing of all the decks and walkways with Pacific Polymers was another large part of this project.
ARBORS AT HIGHLANDS
We removed and replaced all damaged deck and landing sheathing through the community and new sheathing and flashings were installed. New PolyCoat Elastomeric Waterproofing Coatings were applied. We worked closely with the Board President in this project ensuring the the project was completed on time and within budget and with little impact on the homeowners.
Under the direction of RDH Construction Management, we are currently performing a Building Enclosure Rehabilitation at a community in Edmonds.
This is an extensive rehabilitation project that consists of selective areas of demolition. Those areas will receive new Water Resistant Barrier installation, flashing, Elastomeric sealant joints, re-installation of sliding glass doors with new door pans installed, PMMA resin waterproofing of balconies, metal rail installation, exterior architectural woodwork, exterior paint as well as interior finishing.
Removed and replace all the decks framing, post, beams, deck railings, sheathing, and water proofing. All the material was pre-primed and painted in our paint booth.
