Work is taking place to seal the exterior brick work on the Capitol Theatre and to replace its aging roof.

Windsor City Council approved two capital expenses for work at the Theatre back in October and crews started working on the roof a few weeks ago. These improvement are part of an agreement the city made with the Windsor Symphony when they signed a lease for the building on July 4th.

Work includes sealing the exterior of the building structure, particularly along the west wall, to prevent moisture from entering the newly proclaimed symphony hall. This work has to be undertaken before any restoration work on the inside can begin to repair water damage. Siding will enclose most the the remaining brick face wall. The total cost for this is $232,151 with the contract being awarded to Gillett Sheet Metal.

They city is also spending $216,627 on repairs to the most deteriorated sections of roof on the theater.
