Roof Repair

There’s never a dull moment in our home.  I would like some dull moments, but that’s another blog.  So when the first rains came and the roof started leaking, we knew repairs were needed.  We asked for an estimate thinking it was a whole in the zinc roof, but the repairs were more extensive.  The whole front half of the home needed reroofed.  There weren’t enough supporting rafters to hold the roof and the supporting rafters that were in place were termite damaged.  Side note: termites are like little bugs on steroids here and can take down large trees in a matter of weeks.  We spoke with our landlord and started the repair process.

The workers decided to build supporting rafters on the ground and lift them to the roof.  They decided to repair it in sections so we wouldn’t have days without a roof.  This process took a few weeks and wasn’t without many bumps along the way.

Now the rainy season is upon us and we are thrilled to have a dry house!
