This past summer we had some serious storms in Northern Michigan, and as a result CMB Construction was called on to make a few repairs. One family had their home and cabin damaged by the storm. The cabin had only minor exterior damage that needed repair, whereas the house itself was damaged by a very large tree that had the top sheared off directly onto the roof.
We started with the worst of the two by setting up scaffolding to be able to work on the whole width of the damage at once. By clearing out all the tree debris and broken wood that had gotten into the damage site, we were able to see what needed to be done. Carefully removing the damaged structure, we seamlessly replaced it with new framing, before covering it with matching fascia and replacing damaged siding with original siding from the house’s construction.
We cleared the room and pulled up the carpet where the tree entered, then fixed the window frame it had damaged and removed the damaged drywall. Next we re-drywalled and painted, then installed a new carpet. All the while this was happening, we were working on reshingling the affected portion of the roof with color matched shingles.
With the bulk of the damage repaired we moved on to the cabin. Only the fascia was damaged and we had to carefully pull up shingles to strip and replace it. Then we laid the shingles back down and fixed them in place, siliconing any minute gaps that may have formed.
