when our 1 year old house started to fall apart in a wind whipping hail rain thunder & lightning pre dawn storm.
He gathered up the pieces. I borrowed the York's ladder. At 16 feet, not tall enough. Luckily the Handsmans saw our trouble and loaned us their 25 foot extension ladder just before they headed out to Asheville for the weekend.
So, the good news, one piece of the flashing wasn't damaged too much and Bob was able to nail it back in place. The not so good news, the other piece was bent and ripped and no matter how much it was pounded with a rubber mallet, it just wasn't going to cut it. And apparently our builder doesn't buy their flashing at Home Depot or Lowe's. And they don't keep any lying around their jobsites on the other side of the lake (where we might have been today with a car big enough to fit a 10foot piece of flimsy metal in). That's why, if you look closely at the photo, we have exposed wood on the right side of our garage roof.
We've extended our lease on the Handsman's ladder and I hope to hunt down some flashing from the builder this week. I'm sure that won't be a problem. Builders are always eager to help you out after they've sold you a house. Maybe they even keep a supply in the office. Just in case.
