The Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul serves a thriving intercultural Christian family in the city of Montreal. Designed by noted architect Harold Featherstonhaugh and built in 1931-32 in what was then Montreal's luxurious Square Mile, the building's gothic revival style is expressed with an elegance of line and simplicity of detail. The original copper roof was more than 77 years old and nearing the end of its normal life expectancy within its urban surrounding.
To respond to the new energy codes and norms, the roof was required to be insulated. So, a 17,500 square-foot, copper batten seam roof system was conceived and installed. Selective demolition works consisted of removing the existing copper panels, gutters, downspouts and underlayment down to the existing structure and installing a new waterproof membrane, foil faced polyisocyanurate insulation, plywood sheeting, roof shield underlayment system and 17,500 square feet of 16oz. copper batten seam roofing panels with notable custom details.
