giant ceiling stain from roof leak.
I asked our project manager how he was going to keep it from raining once they took off the roof. He never has really been able to follow the way I ask questions. He said we would be home and dry once the felt and tar paper were up. And why should I worry while Texas is in some kind of 100 year drought?
So we've got the new decking, the felt and the tar paper up there. Big severe thunder storm last night. Around 3 am I notice the brown stain on the ceiling. At six this morning, I heard it dripping to the floor. We got up and poked a hole through to let the thing start draining. There is a noticable sag of about an inch or so in the middle of the mess.
Now, this ceiling is old and I'm sure full of spores that want to be mold now that they've got the chance. Are we going to have to take that ceiling down and replace, or does this kind of thing dry so you can paint over with the stain blocker primer, paint the ceiling and get on with life?
