I have a storm cellar that is 50 years or older. It looks to be homemade, in the fact that the ceiling on the inside in made of wood that has rotted.
One of the wooden beams has broken in half and is just hanging.
I am wanting to repair it fairly quickly before it storms again.
What to I need to do to secure the roof, other than replacing it?
The outside of the storm cellar is in pretty good shape, just needs some patches here and there. The inside ceiling is really the only problem.
I was thinking of getting some metal poles at the Hardware store and putting them on the inside from ceiling to floor, what do I need to do to make sure that they will be secure enough to hold the roof? Thanks, sorry such a long message!=)
