Gazebo Roof Repair Project - Baton Rouge, LA

A Few Needed Repairs

LSU Agcenter reached out to us for maintenance on two gazebos on the Botanic Gardens property. Both were in need of new shakes for the roofing and one located by a lake was having a structural issue that needed to be taken care of.

Cedar Shake Roofing

 The cedar shakes varied in sizes. Lengths co nsistent at 24″, thickness 1/2″ – 3/4″, and widths roughly 4″ – 12″. The first course installed was doubled. Most of original 6″ spaced treated sheathing slats were still in good condition which we fastened the shakes to with about two nails per shake. A few rotten slat pieces were replaced. The shakes were installed at 10″ exposure with spacing between 1/4″ – 3/8″ each.

Home Resolution LLC performed a remodel on my home in the Summer of 2022. This was my first experience doing a renovation of any size on my house, but Benjamin did a great job communicating to keep me informed of the process and what to expect. The crew was professional and reliable throughout the project. There was always work being performed and I didn’t feel like we were ever overlooked or forgotten. It was very helpful having a contractor coordinating the plumber, electrician, etc. so that I didn’t have to worry about juggling everyone. Benjamin is honest and easy to work with and I would recommend his work/project management to anyone that needs to renovate their house.

I have known Ben for several years and he has done quite a few projects for me at my home. He replaced the carpet in my bedrooms and closets with wood floors, pressure washed my house and driveway, and several small repairs and maintenance jobs. I can highly recommend Ben for any of your home improvement needs you may have. He is a talented craftsman and very trustworthy.

We had severe floor damage from a leaking toilet. Floor damage was extensive, our home is off the ground. Wood floor had to be torn out and replaced, double floor. Benjamin completed repair and replaced both wood floors, installed new toilet and new flooring in bathroom. We would highly recommend Benjamin for any home maintenance. We will be using him again for some other home projects. As a matter of fact, we just recommended Home Resolutions to an individual that said needed some home repair.

Best home repair experience I’ve had. Quality work from a reliable worker. For years I had some AC ductwork running across my ceiling to my back room. I hired Ben to box it in with Sheetrock and the results were amazing. Also, had him install underpinning under the house and couldn’t be more pleased with the results!

I found Ben's website using a google search and since he already had such good reviews, we asked him to take down some old posts outside our office building. The good reviews will continue from us! He was prompt and the work was fairly priced. Called him back to patch up a large hole in one of our office ceilings and to make a backsplash for one of the kitchens. Both look fantastic and we are pleased with what he has done for us. We will definitely contact him first for work in the future.

I highly recommend Ben at Riley Home Solutions. He has done several jobs on my home, including: removing an old storm door and custom fitting and hanging a new wooden door; installing ceiling light fixtures; repairing a wood floor; and installing door knobs that had to be custom fitted in my old french door. He responds quickly, is a great problem solver, did an excellent job and charges very reasonable prices.

Sunken Post

The corner post was smashed down by a fallen tree. A previous contractor made a temporary repair to level the roof by jacking the structure and placing support blocks on the top of the post.

Sunken Deck

The roof was jacked up and blocks were placed on top of the post. It leveled the roof out but left the same corner of the deck sunken in.

Raising The Roof

We lifted the framing with a lift. This allowed us to place concrete footings under the post.


While the structure was lifted on the corner post, we placed a standard deck block and a thick paver under the post.

Leveled Out Both Ways

The deck was set level while adjusting the footings.

Post Reset

The original post was preserved and the roof structure and deck were reset level.

Deck View

Deck leveled out.
