Featured in Traditional Building Magazine our team performed an extensive roof restoration to the copper spires under the direction of Aeon Preservation Services LLC. Access to the 4 copper spires and large main tower required an engineered scaffolding system, designed and provided by Scaffold Resource.

“The new copper roofs of the turrets have an updated seam pattern that’s stronger and more water-resistant than the original but just as aesthetically accurate.”


Additionally, our team installed all new 16oz. copper through-wall flashing under the coping along the gables. The original coping stones were removed during installation and reinstalled by Aeon Preservation to provide us proper access and for traditional, long-lasting detailing.

Lastly, the upper spire roof’s ornate copper vent was carefully removed and brought back to Wagner’s in-house metal studio to analyze and replicate out of 20oz. copper, before being reinstalled at its iconic perch high above the surrounding Capitol Hill neighborhood.
