At long last we have some feedback about fixing the leak in the roof...

Colleen had to run down to Pueblo today, and while down there swung over to chat with Builder Dale. Apparently this kind of thing happens with flat roofs (which makes me wonder why they don't test them on the spot), so it's not totally a surprise. The biggest problem was that it didn't crop up until it was basically too late for anybody to come up to fix the thing--even if they could physically get to the site, the weather's been far too cold to let them apply roofing patch.

So the plan has two parts. In the near term, the flat roof guys are going to track down some ice/water shield to put down over the suspected infiltration spot to patch up the hole with a product actually intended for this purpose (Colleen's duct tape patch was good but not very durable). Once the weather gets better and there's no chance of the roofing rubber/plastic glop freezing overnight, they'll have a couple of guys come up to reapply throughout the area. Drywall guys will then come up to assess the ceiling damage and fix as necessary.

It's a plan! I'll take it.

So while the roofing guys try to track down some ice/water shielding (there should be some left over from other jobs; we don't need much and it seems a waste to go buy a whole roll of the stuff), we'll continue to catch water and try to keep the area on the roof clear of water and ice.

In other news. it appears that the company that did our framing work is in a spot of trouble and may not be around much longer. The work they did at Tanglewood appears to be fine, so at least there's that; it's a rough economy to be sure. At least framing is not normally something one might need a warranty on!

A busy couple of days coming up, so probably won't be able to get back up to the site until later in the week. Hopefully, we'll have the ice/water shield to put on, though.
