After 3 days of rain, we finally got some decent weather on Monday. Although it was very warm for December, it was quite windy, which slowed us down. Nevertheless, we were able to get a lot of work done, including tearing of some old aluminum shingles/shakes, changing some plywood and of course making the roof watertight for the rain on Tuesday (yep, it was raining again)
As you may notice from the picture above, some of the roof rafters are not evenly spaced at 16 inches O.C., so each sheet of plywood had to be a trimmed to accommodate for the difference. Also some rafters “shift” left or right from their alignment… so to speak.
Since we knew it was going to rain overnight and the next day, we covered the entire roof area with blue tarps. Later we will come back to this section to replace the rest of the plywood. We will also install Ice & Water barrier along all eaves and valleys and GAF breathable systhetic underlayment as the main waterproofing layer under the future Aluminum Shake Metal Roof.
