This is another case where a poorly constructed flat roof eventually began to collapse. It got so bad the combined weight of the roof and the water that pooled on it began cracking the windows. Water ran down inside the interior walls and shorted out the electrical system. Once again we had to remove everything above the walls. Then we strengthened the exterior walls so they could support a new roof system, and built a new peaked roof. This meant extending the interior walls to meet and help support the new roof. Finally, we re-wired the house, installed new windows, and applied stucco to match the original exterior. Click on any picture for expanded detail.
