Repairing the Lee House Roof

The shingling of the Lee House was finished in early November. With only one day of rain the job was quickly done.  The chimney was also repaired and new flashing was put around its base.

The Society has been watching the roof on the house, knowing that in a few years it would need to have new shakes. This past spring it was noticed that there were some very small leaks starting and we couldn’t hold off any longer. On Oct 19th, the removal of the old roof shakes began. After removing the old shakes some of the battens were found to be in much worse shape than we thought, and also would need to be replaced.
