Washburn Heights, Brockton


The Washburn Heights development is comprised of ten two-story residential buildings that were constructed in the early 1950’s of masonry veneer construction, wood framing, and asphalt shingle roofs.  The roof shingles were worn and the buildings had been experiencing many leaks. 


CBI performed a comprehensive investigation of each roof in the development, analyzed the needs of each building in terms of which could be included in the Brockton Housing Authority’s budget, and which should be proposed as alternates to the contract.  CBI performed drainage and ventilation calculations to provide updated attic venting systems and the correct size and quantity of downspouts.  CBI addressed intricate flashing conditions creatively to prevent run-off from being trapped against existing siding.  A complete asphalt shingle replacement roofing system was designed with 50 year shingles, underlayments, and ice and water membrane for ideal moisture protection.
