roof repair

The 'before':

the 'during':

dates stamped on end of tiles:

our numbering system:

We found a section of loose roof tiles perilously close to sliding off right over the laundry room balcony door.

We removed them all, numbering them for replacement, cleaned, and will reinstall them using copper nails, copper wire and mortar. Interestingly, we found the tiles all date-stamped, from the time of original construction. They were made b/w 1916 & 1918.
