One of the Chase County Courthouse’s striking features is its 150-year-old mansard roof clad in red terne metal. Last re-painted in 2000, the roof was in need of repair by 2019. Ben Moore Studio researched methods for terne metal repair, as this method of roofing is not commonly used in modern construction. Our team helped the owner find contractors who were comfortable performing the historic method. To complete construction drawings, our studio utilized a drone to capture footage of the areas of roof difficult to reach. In addition, one of the masonry chimneys needed re-pointing. Ben Moore Studio researched the methods for terne metal repair and provided construction drawings and construction administration for this project.
