The Three Forks Historical Center has needed new gutters for a year now. The back of the building's galvanized gutters had rusted clear through and discussions from the museum board indicated that the guttering needed to be replaced at a larger size.
On Tuesday, Sept 15th new gutters and downpipes were installed in half a day by Richard Marcum and his crew. The antique brown continuous gutters look great but there was one hiccup. The timbers behind the flashing on the porch to the Veteran's wing entrance had rotted out so bad there was nothing to connect the new gutter too. Water had been going under the metal flashing and soaking the wood underneath.
Calling for help, the board contacted Josh Caudill of Beattyville, to come and take a look at the damage. After some problem solving and a couple of hours, he cleaned out the rotted wood, replaced a few timbers and now it is ready for new metal and guttering. Thank you Josh for your time and willingness to help.
Here are a few photos.
