Knocking down a roof

In this week’s video we destroy a perfectly deteriorated roof. Once again we have a flat roof problem that has rotted out the wood underneath and caused a lot of damage. There is no way to salvage this part of the roof so we just took it down and took it apart on the ground. I guess the architect really loved flat roofs. We would love to have more followers so if you feel like it, share this post on your social media or share the video if you like it.

    Do you have a large debris pile on the property or do you haul it away as you go? I always disliked that part of a project. It’s not fun. Better to get right to the goal, be it restoration or construction. Also, are there any sections of the roof, or I should say roofs left that are severely compromised?

      We do have a few piles around. We are able to go pick through them to find salvageable stuff every once in a while. We just used some of this roof “debris” to put “new” planking on another small part of the roof. Other than the stuff you see on the roof in this video… we are almost done with the roofs as far as reconstruction. We still need to put on the coverings and patch some slate though.

    Frank, did you temp tarp or put anything over that section that connected to the flat roof to protect it from further water damage? Particularly that one big area that was obviously a hole where the two areas met. P.S. I would have had great satisfaction scraping all those pine needles off the roof! 😉

      No, this is all exterior. All damage that is going to happen has already happened. It was nice to use the scoop shovel to get all the pine needles off.
