At 9,000 feet above sea-level is Mountain Village situated next to historic Telluride, CO. Elevation becomes a factor in analysis and considerations for roofing types. For Granita Condominiums, roofing was less the matter than was the dysfunction of the building envelope barrier.
The internal conditioned environment was hemorrhaging to the exterior, causing significant ice damming for starters. Identifying the cause was FEI’s initial task, and this provided Granita with a report of overall conditions as well. Ultimately, a phased-approach to alleviating the malady was rendered. FEI orchestrated the sequence and coordinated contractors to provide the fix
A total roof replacement was abandoned because localized issues could be treated, saving Granita Condominiums precious financial resources. The projects have graduated from the specific to the general as the intended improved building performance is restored.
