Our "new" roof

This is our new roof on the shed, cov ering the damage left by the recent windstorm. 
After several hours clearing off the broken pieces, Chuck realized the slate is just too fragile to repair. 
Since this building is scheduled to be torn down and replaced, a tarp will have
to suffice for the time being.


This used to be a fence.  Its now completely covered with flood
debris, and the posts are leaning.  This will have to be torn out
and some sort of tear away temporary fence installed. 
There is a picture of how it used to look here:

A new hole has developed at the culvert which is causing all
this flooding.  This hole is at the edge of the road - actually in
the edge of the road.  Its 4 feet across, and nearly that deep.
Hope its not a fully loaded gravel or water truck that drops
into it some night in the dark..........

Why is the roof too fragile to repair? I suggest you repair it as soon as possible, Somerhill. Remodel your roof. Chances are, if there are cracks or if there is black rot on the roof, the roof might fall down, which is quite dangerous, and very expensive as well.

Don't know who you are.....but....
We plan to tear down this old building and replace it with a more useful structure in the next year or two, so do not want to spend a lot of time and money repairing a roof when it will have to be torn down.
