Haiti - Heritage : Repair of the dome of the Royal Chapel of Milot
Since June 23rd, the Institute for the Safeguarding of National Heritage (ISPAN), in partnership with the parish priest of the Immaculate Conception Church of Milot, has undertaken work of temporary waterproofing work on the roof of the Royal Chapel of Milot.

Let's recall that the domed roof of this circular chapel about thirty meters in diameter, covered with asphalt tiles (shingle) suffered the insults of time, which deteriorated and perforated in several places.



The intervention carried out with the means of the parish consisted in the consolidation of the farms after sprinkling and treatment of the woods; Waterproofing of laths and joints; Cleaning and partial replacement of asphalt tiles with a more suitable membrane (Soprema Sopralene Flam) for roofing.

It is important to note that since this work, there has been no water leakage despite several high-intensity showers, which confirms the effectiveness of the work regarding the sealing of the roof.
