Bye-bye balconies(August 8)
The insulation was pulled from the walls in my office and the wallboard/siding told the story as to where the leaks were. The new roof fixes the south wall, but the west wall had something that looked like saran wrap stuffed in the wall. My guess is that it was added to try to fix a leak some time in the past. It didn’t work.
The balconies have been removed and the old tar is being removed. New tar will be added that ties the roof extension into the walls to keep the water out. That should happen next week.
