As the weather changes from hot to cold and dry to damp, the wood on the tower expands and contracts. For the mitered cornices and trim details, the movement of the wood allowed an moisture to find its way into the building. One of the goals of this project was to address this issue more effectively. Therefore, the mitered corners are receiving custom-made flashing covers. The new flashing covers, seen above, will create a barrier and give water running down the side of the tower a solid surface over which to travel towards the roof and then away from the building.
