Return of That Darn Roof

While I was home in Fernley this weekend, Lisa pointed out to me an issue that needs resolving sooner, not later. During the last-but-one windstorm, a portion of the fascia (the facing along the roof eves) blew off the upper portion of the west side of the roof.


Where you see exposed wood here should be covered with metal siding.

Here's a spot where a piece of the metal sheeting that should cover the wood is hanging down from the roof. When you look out of the second-floor window, you can see it. Bear in mind that this damage is on the upper floor of a two-story house

If we were in Oregon, I would have been on the phone to the contractor today. As it is, we do need to get this fixed, but the urgency is slightly less than in rainy Oregon. We saw with Lisa's father's house what happens when the fascia goes missing — the wood rots and then water starts blowing in under the eves. Fernley gets a lot less rain, so we're less worried about this, but it's something that needs fixing relatively soon.

Lisa says she's tired of going up on roofs and isn't willing to touch this one.
