Yesterday I rather skimmed over all the really good work that "Complete Home Maintenance" did on the office bungalow rear roof. Whoever added that section onto the building (god knows how many years ago) really didn't understand the theories of physics - and we're not talking rocket science here. The original roof was nearly flat, hardly any pitch as you can see from the photos..
As Rob (head man of CHM) explained to me, you can't put down a typical roof of plywood, tar paper and shingles when rain and snow have no place to run off. As you can see from the work in progress, I guess we're lucky that the roof held up for as many years as it did!
Rob and crew used a two day window of perfect weather to get the job entirely finished as it should have been done originally.
What you are looking at in the final pictures here is the top layer of roofing material that is used when there is little or no pitch to the roof. It is a sheeting of rubber that covers the entire surface and should provide years of service with no leakage whatsoever.
This is comforting to know as the rooms directly below the new cover are a bed room and a bath room. it would be rather disconcerting to wake up to water dripping on your face in the darkness of the middle of the night!
Rob and the crew of Complete Home Maintenance are great guys to have in your employ and I recommend them highly. Here's what it says on the business card:

Kim's cleaning lady, Diane Rahl, who comes in for general house cleaning once every two weeks, has come to have quite a relationship with our two little pals, Hammy and Stella. Here's the note she left for us today:
As for current events, we played "52 pick up" with your rocks in the bath room. I bumped them and over they went! But no fear. Hammy was here! He was a great help in gathering them up again.
But Stella was the most helpful when it comes to "swiffering" under the bed. She guides the Swiffer right where it needs to go! As for Hammy's part with the Swiffer, he just lays on it which makes it a bit heavier to maneuver.
but they're very entertaining for someone who spends most of her day alone .. working. (that's me!)
Stay well, Be back in two weeks!
