Capital Ale Renovation

A busy lunch service was interrupted when an intense storm caused a roof collapse at Capital Ale House in downtown Fredericksburg in the summer of 2015, allowing more than 2,000 gallons of water into the establishment.  Abby Construction was soon hired thereafter to review the damage and develop a timely repair plan to get the business back up and running.


Once the water and storm debris were cleaned up and removed, Abby Construction was able to assess what exactly needed to be replaced and repaired.  This included new floors, walls and refurbished support beams with a rustic farmhouse finish.  In addition, the building’s electrical system had to be completely replaced and reworked to meet the new design aesthetic.



The aftermath: a terrible storm caused a roof collapse during a busy during lunch hour.



All booths and fixtures had to be removed and rebuilt to the original fit and finish.



With almost 50 employees waiting to return to work, all renovation work had to be completed before a special promotion event.



A successful restoration rewarded Capital Ale with a new roof and restaurant interior!


Completed in just under two months, the project demonstrates Abby Construction’s ability to meet tight deadlines under less-than-ideal circumstances.  The successful completion allowed Capital Ale House to hold their much-anticipated Oktoberfest event in the first week of October.  If you’re in the area, be sure to stop in to Capital Ale House to enjoy some drinks and view Abby Construction’s fine renovation work.
