Work began this week on the Bell Tower to prevent future water leaks and repair damaged wood at the base of the dome. A roof contractor used a hydraulic lift for access to the red dome cupola. He power-washed the dome, sealed and repaired its edges, and then applied a new layer of a special sealant paint.
Additional work is planned including: more power washing, cross repair, and a repair to the bell tower roof above the bell. A fresh coat of white paint will complete the project.
This project and funding was approved by the Vestry and managed by Junior Warden George Balog.
