After initial inspections and structural examination of the Downtown Luxury Slum when we bought it, the conclusion was that we didn't need to do any work on the roof. But we were suspicious so we did allocate a fair bit of extra contingency money in case the roof needed work.

But it took us until now to finally bite the bullet and get the historic metal roof replaced.
