Under the jurisdiction of HCAI, ETC’s team removed and replaced surface materials, abatement, repaired damage from termites, resealed, and resurfaced the roof. This project required removal and replacement of air handlers, and the installation of a temporary air handler. The project was completed two months ahead of schedule.
