Finally after 3 years of dealing with moving buckets and planning my schedule around the weather forecasts, I’ll be able to have a new roof installed on both of my old buildings.
They started today on the Lyric Theater building which I use main for storage at the moment. It was interesting to see what they uncovered when they pealed back the old roof, which has been in place since 1980. We discovered two old Coke a Cola can’s from 1980 with the LA Olympics logo and a real pull tab.
Going back with R panel galvalum roofing, will be installing 4” purlins over the old roof deck to avoid replacing all the rotten decking. The purlins will be lagged into the rafters. Opting to install the steel purlins so that the screws won’t tend to back out with the expansion and contraction and will give me more insulation space also.
I’ll be posting photos as I progress.
I’ll also prepping the workshop for the project also. Getting plastic ready to cover the machinery and wood rack just in case of an unexpected rain event.
I’m also thinking about running some PEX tubing as they put down the R panels and using it as a solar heater for the shop and water, still doing some research on that aspect.
