Roof repair day one, the finale.

.

Roof section stripped, ice and water shield in place, drip edge nailed down.

.

.

The problem corner was recognized and discussed.

.

I checked periodically and enjoyed the view from up high.

You’d think all the hammering and noise would scare off the wildlife…

But it didn’t stop Chuck from having a little nosh.

No, the husband wasn’t asleep… but they’d been on the roof since 8:00am and apparently he can strategize just as well lying down.

I repeatedly asked what he was going to do with the bad corner…. and I was repeatedly ignored. Please refer to the complicated diagram below to understand how and where the water was getting in.

They finished for the day at 7:00pm and the tarp was redeployed. But when I went back out and found the section over the door (you know.. where it was leaking!) hadn’t been covered, I suggested something might need to be done due to the forecast of imminent rain. But once again, I was ignored. Because really, what do I know?

  1. Yes, what do we know? I’ve already spoken in a previous comment of how my late husband used to acknowledge that he should’ve listened to me (multiple times) and how he continued to ignore my counsel, despite the acknowledgement. But I didn’t share with you how sometimes he would say “Yes, YOU did tell me this would happen…but YOU didn’t say it in a way that I could understand.” Oh, so you heard me, ignored me, and SOMEHOW IT’S BECOME MY FAULT???? We women just can’t win…

  2. So the hubs is ignoring your pleas for the leak that’s being caused by rim joist damage? I use to date a contractor so I know about the “corner/tapered roof leak. And if you roof isn’t fixed where it’s leaking its going to leak again. But then you know this, the question is, does your hubs? lol

  3. It appears that the wood is rotted where the red arrows point, and the ice and water shield isn’t going to protect it from further damage. Looks like a half-ass job to me, but then what do I know — I’m not a former marine! 😉
