Dave came over early on Saturday to get started. He hadn’t gotten the materials from Colorado, but luckily we had enough to allow him to do what was really required before any significant rain set in (which it never did).
The main areas of concern were/are:
a leak area above the living room that corresponds to a valley where the living room gable meets the main portion of the roof.
- another leak area above the library in yet another gable valley.
- broken tile on the gable over the front porch
- leak areas on the conservatory wall next to the dining room – this used to be an outside wall – and the conservatory used to be a balcony.
Dave fixed the number 1 completely which also helped to mitigate number 4. For number two, he put a patch in place, and will address it again when he comes back for the wrap up. Since we’re still waiting on the tile from colorado, he couldn’t do the full fix.
As of Friday (9/28/2007) he hadn’t gotten the materials, but said that as soon as he did he would be back to do the install. This will get us all the broken tile replaced, and the conservatory roof replaced. We’re also going to take this time to install two skylights in the conservatory to allow us to get more light in the area during summer (the large Japanese Magnolia shades the windows quite a bit).
While Dave was here I took the opportunity to take some pics of some of the roof using his ladder to get up to that hieght.
