Default Roof

My son bought a Yurt kit from Asheville in 2010. The roof is now beginning to rot . It is a canvas roof. The company has gone out of business. I am desperately trying to find a way to replace my roof. the sides have been replaced Before the company went out of business. Our son has moved away . We rent the yurt. it is really a gorgeous spot with a wonderful deck but its not gonna be much if the roof rots😩

Thanks Jafo.

Gotta say 13 years on a canvas roof cover is absolutely phenomenal. My canvas cover was up for six years but only :good: for four. The fifth was very marginal and the sixth was worthless.

More than 30 years ago weve had on a permanent campground of the Austrian Scouts an never used canvas marquee from the British Army and on the long lasting, little bit difficult building process we decided, to let it built-on during the winter season. The result was an leaky roof after the 2nd winter.....

Something like that:

I framed a Super8 motel in Jackson WY during the fall of 1982. Thanksgiving week the temp hovered between zero and -20f. I was part of a skeleton crew that week, finishing up fire wall work on the roof.

Me and the girls I was going with that week frequently climbed down off that roof and walked into the heated wall tent in the parking lot. That tent was about half the size of the one in the photo above. I could have cared less about the state of the canvas I wanted to thaw the nails stuck to my lips. lol Lemme tell yuh walking into that heated tent at -20 was pure unadulterated bliss.

Off topic. We were young and tough gunslingers. But lemme tell yuh something. TOUGH was the US Army in the Battle of the Bulge WWII. Same temps, days on end, no nice tent no warm wood stove and the Germans regularly shelling your a$$. My parents were part of the greatest generation. Tough.
