It was pouring most of the day yesterday so I didn’t want to work on the roof and get it all wet again. I didn’t much want to get ME all wet, so nothing was accomplished except some fine PC gaming.
Today however, the rain stopped and I took the opportunity to get outside and collect the roofing panels, clean them up (they’ve been sitting for a few months since I last cleaned them), and move them much closer to my work area. It felt like the temps were in the high 50s, and for most of the couple hours it took, the sun warmed my back. It was lovely. 🙂 I now have eight 10 foot panels to work with.
Before I can attach them, however, I need to figure out how to remove the thick black adhesive (?) stuck on the ends and around some of the nail holes. It’s really chunky, will prevent them from laying flat against each other, and doesn’t play well with the liquid rubber roofing product I’m going to apply. Luckily, it’s so old that I was able to chip off some of the chunks easily just be banging the edge of the scrub brush against them. Hopefully the rest is removable also. If not, I’ll be cutting away the ends with the black stuff. I have visions of sprained hands and lots of metal cuts doing that, but I’ll do it if necessary.
As I’m writing this, I hear rain. So happy I was able to work in sunshine.
I want to thank a reader/friend today for a donation towards this huge project! You are awesome, and I appreciate the assistance very much. 🙂
I hope everyone’s Sunday went well, too. Take care,
