Fusing the Seams in the Dome

Late last week the team from Oak Roofing worked on sealing the seams in the dome. Our water test showed that the dome was leaking at the seams. As a possible solution for the leaks, the dome's seams were opened and fused together.

The dome is made of lead. Originally the seams were folded over and pounded to a tight seal. This picture shows one of the seams fused together to create a solid barrier against water.
