After 10 inches of rain the past 4 days we received a few calls about leaks. Today we re-flashed $ repaired a cracked chimney in Salem. The water was leaking in the cracks on the chimney and making it all the way down to the living room. Another leak stopped!

This was just a simple shingle repair. The 75 MPH winds of the storm ripped a few tabs off. Went up on the roof, removed the broken shingles and replaced them.
We replaced some shingles on one side and totally replaced the large rubber roof on the other. The Rubber roof area was very soft and we knew we were going to have some rot, but we were shocked at how much was actually there! We ripped out all the sheathing, replaced it and finished it off with a perfect rubber roof.
This was a powerful storm. With winds up to 80 MPH, it knocked a lot of trees over and set a few boats off their moorings. This boat hung out here for a few days before the owner took it home.
On this job we were hired to gut a basement level bathroom, drywall and paint and be done. Sometimes jobs aren't that easy. When we gutted the bathroom, we found a large and unsettling amount of black mold. We informed the homeowner and she decided it was best to remove it. We took care of it, no problem.
These beams that were to become the main supports for the mailbox "house" came in 2 inches too big on one side. We had to remove the 2 inches to make it fit. We first scored it with a circular saw, then made relief cuts all the way down and finished the cut with a chain saw. Manly.
On this job we were hired to demo a bathroom, rip down a few walls and add support beams to make a apartment/bathroom into a big common room. To finish it off, we dry walled everything. We also removed a door and framed it in for a window.
Just a simple Re-shingle job on a very small house. We replaced some rotten boards. The pitch on this roof was ridiculous.
