finished up the fascia and roof patching on the porch. hopefully good enough to see us through the winter.

grampa mike and i cut off the old fascia boards and trimmed back the rotting edge of the roof. then we slapped on some 1×6 paneling we had lying around in the basement to build it up again. again, we had some tar in the basement, so used all 5 gallons to recreate the roof and hopefully point the water somewhat towards the roof drain. then we added some new flashing and capped each end of our castle with a turret. the total cost of the repairs was about $70.

let’s finish with a question…

update: i went ahead and painted it anyway… and coated the roof with premium aluminum roof coating.
