Patching the Porticos

Before the snow hit we were able to get some patches done in the rubber roofing above the porticos. We didn’t realize that these areas were allowing a lot of water to get behind the stonework. The south portico was the worst. We didn’t patch every hole in it but we made a dent in the amount of water that was pouring into the area underneath. Doing this patch job will give us a few months to concentrate on more pressing things before we get to replacing this roofing.

    That was fascinating to watch. And to think, all that work for a temporary solution! Of course that’s true for a lot of your roof repair so far. Well, you gotta do what you gotta do. I can imagine the excitement when your repair/replace projects are the permanent ones. Here’s to warm weather!!

      You have no idea how excited we are to have the warmer weather on the way. We are getting closer every day!

    If you had a dollar for every hole patched/repaired, you would be millionaires. (slight exaggeration but you have fixed your fair share). I continue to love the Sunday morning video.

      Imagine if these holes had been fixed when they were just small holes. This story would be a little bit different.

    Where did Frank learn all of his skills, which are many?

    So when time comes for the “final” repair, will rubber go back down or will you use something else?

      We are still debating that. We are surprised at how well our patches are holding up. We might get another couple years out of these roofs before we have to make that call.
