It’s Better than a Blue Tarp: Progress? on the Roof
After laying out sheets of plywood on Dec. 30 so the lift truck wouldn’t get stuck, the “new roof” project was put back on hold until this week. Tuesday the crew showed up to install our brand, spankin’ new “temporary” rubber roof. This will help prevent additional leaking and plaster damage on the third floor until the roof can be reshingled in the spring or summer.
The material has been laid over the existing shingles on the upper slope of the gambrel roof and is held in place by boards which are nailed through. Supposedly the material is good for 5 or 6 years, but we hope it won’t stay on that long. Stay tuned for when the real work begins which they tell us will be later this year.
