Merrill Court is a 9-unit town-home complex located in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Seattle. The construction of the building is mixed traditional brick. Tatley Grund was awarded the project through a competitive bidding process with the base scope of work to perform a full
strip and re-roof of the existing rooftops and brick veneer chimney repairs with waterproofing. The scope of work included full removal of existing roofing system and replace with a new cold applied roofing system. Perform grout and brick repairs as well as waterproofing repellent at all
rooftop chimney locations. Temporally remove existing HVAC rooftop systems and reinstall at completion. Raise all skylight and roof-hatch framing curbs for proper clearance of rooftop. Project was performed on budget and on schedule. A big challenge of the project was the time
of year in which the projected was contracted to start when compared the being a roof replacement project. Contractually, Tatley Grund was to perform the project in 90 days with the project beginning in the latter part of summer and navigating through environmental conditions.

A unique aspect to the Merrill Court project was gaining access to the rooftop with as little impact to the property as possible. This was accomplished by installing a stair-tower on the inner courtyard and building walking bridges between rooftops. Additionally, Tatley-Grund
was met with the challenge as to how to best protect both the exterior portions of the building, but also important, how to protect personal items within the individual town-homes as it is common for a roofing project to impact interior through movement and vibration.
