New Rochelle, NY Having completed a series of comprehensive façade repairs at Young Israel of New Rochelle, a prominent synagogue with a Modern Orthodox congregation, at 1149 North Ave. in the Wykagyl neighborhood, Bellet Construction will soon embark on a second phase of restorations, encompassing roof repairs and other measures to eliminate and prevent any exterior leaks in the future.
In addition to upgrading roof cladding on the 50,000 s/f masonry structure, Bellet will be installing new metal coping along copper parapet walls and caulking around all of the windows and through-wall air conditioning units. The synagogue has also retained Bellet Construction to clean the moss-soiled masonry in the rear of the property, using a high pressure, eco-friendly detergent.
“Young Israel of New Rochelle is a congregation committed to keeping their revered house of worship in optimal condition,” pointed out Wayne Bellet, president of the eponymous, third generation restoration firm. “The fact they are additionally investing in improving the aesthetics of the back façade, further reinforces the high standards of this admirable and close-knit community.”
The second stage of the project is scheduled to be completed by early fall 2022.
