The work will concern two buildings of the Khavsko-Shabolovsky residential complex and one of the houses built for the workers of the Goznak factory.

In the Danilovsky district of Moscow, the roofs of three historic buildings will be repaired this year. Work in residential buildings that are cultural heritage sites will take place as part of a large-scale regional program overhaul.

Two buildings are located on Lesteva Street – houses 13, buildings 3 and 22. They belong to the Khavsko-Shabolovsky residential complex built in 1928. The project was prepared by Nikolay Travin with the participation of I. Josefovich and Valentin Bibikov. The buildings are made in the constructivist style and represent 12 five-storey buildings, consisting of typical apartment sections of the Moscow City Council. They are located at right angles to each other and rotated 45 degrees relative to the street grid. Thus, a system of square and triangular courtyards is formed. The corner sections are one floor higher than the straight ones and form tower silhouettes. The main surfaces are made of red brick, and the corners and protruding elements are plastered and painted in a light color.

Also this year, the roof of a historic building in the constructivism style will be repaired at 64 Lyusinovskaya Street, building 1. It was built in 1925 and is part of an ensemble of residential buildings for workers of the Goznak factory. Initially, the house was four-storey, but later two more floors were added.

In South Administrative District 160 roofs of houses will be repaired in 2021

In these houses, specialists will change the covering of the pitched roof, repair the drainage system, and, where it is provided for by the project documentation, insulate the attic floors.

When repairing a roof, the entire old coating is dismantled, after which a new roof is made and fences are installed. All work is carried out in strict accordance with applicable building codes and regulations.

The attic floor is insulated to restore the temperature and humidity conditions of the attic space, which increases the energy efficiency of the building as a whole and improves the operation of the roof. For this, mineral wool slabs are used. If necessary, the battens, rafters and mauerlat are changed, all wooden structures are treated with fire-retardant compounds, hatches and exits to the attic and the roof are renewed.

As a result, the residents of the houses will receive a new roof made using modern technologies from innovative materials.

In total, more than 2.5 thousand houses will be overhauled in the capital this year. Also, more than three thousand elevators will be replaced and over 1300 roofs.

Only contractors with special licenses from the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation are allowed to work. In the process of overhaul, the objects are regularly checked by specialists from the Department of Cultural Heritage of the city of Moscow. Operational, intermediate and acceptance monitoring is carried out by employees of construction control.

Information stands are placed next to each object where work is taking place. There you can find the details of the contractor carrying out the repairs and the contact details of the authorized employees. Also, for all questions, you can contact the dispatch office of the Fund for Capital Repair of Moscow: +7 (495) 695-64-20.
