The D.C. Court of Appeals is the fourth oldest building in Washington, D.C. Its new copper roof provides a historically accurate solution to replicate original design intent while correcting problems caused by a poorly executed repair effort.
The 35,000 square foot roof replacement was completed in two phases. This solution includes both flat and batten seam roofing as well as related flashing. Challenging aspects included a new copper enclosure for the rooftop electrical cabinet and incorporation of new access stair ladder.
Copper provides a beautiful, long lasting roofing solution to this majestic building.
