Back to the roof

After a day of fixing the tractor and getting a lawnmower running… we finally made it back to the roof. We really enjoy doing slate work. Kerry does the cutting inside the attic and hands the slates out the window. We might have mentioned this but, we are not going to use any tar. We are using our custom cut step flashings to make sure there are no leaks where the roof meets the wall. We also replaced the valley flashing. All of this slate came off of this part of the roof. It was the stuff used to make repairs in 1999 we think.

    The flashing blends beautifully in that second picture.

    I saw the historical society presentation. It was so good. Tell Kerry she looks like a model with her hair down! I’m used to the ballcap Kerry!!!!!! 😀

      Yes, we had to get a good color for the valley flashing since it is an open valley. The step flashing won’t be seen. Kerry says that without a ballcap, her hair wouldn’t look like a model once it had the first few gusts of wind. It frizzes quickly. =)
