A recent inspection by J.P. Bachand revealed that the ridge boards along the roof line at the Joshua Hempsted needed attention. These were properly secured with roof screws.

Bachand and his team also made repairs to the chimney at the Joshua by sealing around the perimeter of the stainless steel cover with caulk to prevent water infiltration. They also repaired small holes in the masonry joints and used sealant around the metal flashing at the roof line.

This work was completed with the guidance of Preservation Connecticut.

Bachand is also slated to perform repairs to two windows on the east side of the Nathaniel Hempsted House, shortly.
