Dry Rot Repairs, day 2
Tuesday, 20 Jul 2010
Last night, after the contractors left, I cleaned, caulked, and painted the portion of the back wall that was covered by one of the stringers for the stairs. Today’s pictures will show why. The new stringer is not attached to the wall but there is little space to paint.
After the post supporting the front walkway overhang was routed and lag bolted I added a coat of primer. I also primed the facia that was replaced above the garage. Forgot to take pictures of that.
The reason the eaves on the pool house rotted was because the shingles didn’t go all the way to the gutter. To fix that all the way around was going to be about $800. Hmm, the current shingles are almost 20 years old. A complete new roof is $2000. We’re getting a new roof on the pool house.
