Who needs to read an article about finding leaks? It is easy to tell if there is a problem – water drips into your home! But what if you can’t find the cause? The gravity of your roof may be causing the gravity of your problem!
If you don’t have a pool, then look around your yard and think about where it is the most tranquil and inviting. Obviously steer clear from the neighbour’s window or the shady mosquito den that returns every summer. Perhaps building it on the patio is a good idea, to ensure a nice solid, level ground.
When replacing soffits and fascias, it is not advisable to work on a ladder. Scaffolding should ideally be erected for this type of work to be carried out.
Now, after getting your plan, the next thing that you need to do is get a materials list. If you bought your shed plans online, they will usually come with a list already together for you. But if you chose to make your own, sit down and make a list of everything that you are going to need. Make sure you remember things like nails, screws, modern roofing material, etc.
Gardens can cause more damage during a flood. If you have one, you will want to make sure it is far enough from the house since they can hold more water in the soil. Plants that help retain the topsoil may also be a good option, since this can assist in keeping mud out of your house as well.
Cedar roofs are more prone to rot from debris setting on top of them. Once the natural oils and tannins, are leached out of the wood (usually within the first year or two), they are subject to deterioration similar to other forms of dead wood. Think of all the old branches you have seen on a forest floor covered with leaves and pine needs. They quickly start to decay. The same will occur with a cedar roof covered by needles and leaves. Therefore, more so than other roof types, the prompt removal of this debris is critical with cedar roofs.
Whether it’s for entire roof replacements, roof repairs or a new roof installation, the most important thing is that you pay less for it and not heavy on your budget.
