New Flow hive roof needed

The roof on my flow hive is damaged & needs replacement.
Funds are tight, any suggestions appreciated.

Hi Daz, welcome to the forum. If the end panels and frame are okay you could replace the cedar strips with a solid piece of metal flashing, or well sealed Masonite panels. If the whole thing is trashed you could modify a regular Langstroth outer cover to work with the Flow super - which would only be needed at harvest time - with a feeding shim between it and the inner cover. This raises the lid and makes just enough room for the key access.
