Stayton Roof Repair

We just completed a small insurance roof repair for a family in Stayton.

A heavy snow this last winter took its toll on four rafters that were original (1950s) but had some large knots that cracked causing a section of the roof to sag and belly.

We replaced these with new lumber, added some extra supports and recovered with 3/4″ plywood, two layers of felt and 30 year architectural shingles. Glad we got done early today, because it was close to 80 which is pretty warm for late April in Western Oregon!

Darin, looking over the start to the framing, thinking that 65 degrees sounds pretty good right now. Fortunately, there was iced tea at lunch.

 

All finished. Hard to see, but the roof is much flatter and sturdier now!
