Classical Wood Carving
Some views of repair to the eaves and roof of the North Chatham United Methodist Church.
Applying sheathing over an unstable base such as these old shakes that should have been stripped from the deck boards is substandard workmanship. Note the piecemeal application of sheathing and gaps. I have seen many thousands of dollars worth of damage from faulty roofing jobs. Do your homework carefully when hiring a roofer.
Here the sheathing is floating due to the excessive distance away from the deck. Most of the staples in the roofer applied sheathing missed the deck and attached to unstable splintered and rotted shakes. This is especially troubling in view of the fact that stripping the shakes is an easy job.
Reconstruction of a nice entrance way.

There was a time capsule behind this panel! Blueprints of the architect designed addition and improvements and the day's newspaper! Western red cedar is warranted in this kind of work. See the link at the top of the page to learn why.
