Well now that the rainy days of autumn have arrived, The Leak has (of course) cropped up again. Dang it.
First the good news related to the turret. I've been doing work up on top of the turret cleaning it all up and getting ready to put a new membrane seal onto things and I have to say it all looks pretty danged good. There's a "dip" in front of the main scupper which causes water to pond rather than that I'll need to level out, but fortunately I'd thought about that and bought some stuff to do so.
The leak however is still present and we got enough rain to (of course) leak again (pics below). Very frustrating. Feeling around the length of the patio door it's wet along the whole way, but I think it's "more wet" along the southern edge than towards the northern (house) edge.
Once the rain stops and I can clear everything off I'll take a closer took of course. I need to completely clean off the top of the turret (pine needles, cones, etc.), then level out that one part before I can put a new layer on top. Down below, I'll clean off the whole walkaround and then double check everything once more--maybe I missed something causing the leak. I'll probably put a new layer on everything as well if the weather is amenable.
I want to fix the ceiling in that room but of course I can't until I've got that leak stopped.
I'll get you fixed sooner or later, Tanglewood--it will happen!
