We’re getting a new roof!

For the last week and half, we have been working to get a new roof on the house. Come to find out, recent storms did a lot of damage and we were able to get our 19-year old roof (that needed to be done anyway) covered by insurance! WHO-HOO!!! We went with an architectural style shingle and they’re bit lighter in color than we thought they would be, but we are happy we’re finally doing it. We’re doing the work ourselves, with a lot of help from David’s brother. It should be done by the end of the week (we think).

We also replaced the lights on the front of the house and on the side of the garage (because the insurance adjuster broke one when he was throwing his rope up to get on top of the roof… DOH!). So, needless to say, we got those replaced too… and thank goodness, because the previous ones were ugly and brass. The new ones look fantastic.

    The storms that damaged the roof blew down that shutter and cracked it (it was in our front yard)… we got quoted to buy a new one but I think we can use a strong epoxy to fix the crack. Just one more thing that needs to be fixed and we haven’t gotten to it yet.

    Looking good- always feels good to improve the house, especially when it is not your dime! Hey- what happened to one of your shutters- have David put it back up while he has that cool machine! Lights look good too.
