They did my roof today, starting at 7:20 am

Kathsgrdn

I set my alarm to get up at 7:30 just in case the workers came today, so I could let the dogs out before they came. They usually come at 8:00. They hadn't come for a few days because of all the rain. The roofing material was delivered yesterday. I let the dogs out and they were already here!! I let the dogs back in, put ear plugs in and tried to sleep. I dozed and woke multiple times, finally getting up about 12:30 because of a pounding headache. I do now have a beautiful roof. They still have to redo the gutters. Ignore the garbage bins, they were moved off the sidewalk by the workers who moved them from the side of the house because they blocked the way to the dumpster they are using.



We are waiting for the siding to come in for them to finish the porch in back. Then I'll have new windows and doors put in. I'll be glad when it's all done. I do like it better than the old brown roof.

Beautiful!! I was wondering how your project was coming along. It's been such fun to read about what you're doing to your house and seeing the pictures--I'm living through you, Kath, since we aren't doing a darned thing to ours right now.

Wow, it looks great! We had an oak tree come down and hit our roof. :-( I envy you having this all done!

It looks great, I'm sure you're glad to have that done. Mine will be due in the next few years. It's cedar and comparable quality cedar is difficult to find these days so jury still out on a replacement product.

So sorry about the headache, hope its better now. Contractors aren't supposed to begin before 8 AM in this community although its not strictly enforced. My own BIL showed up in his 'pet' pristine canary yellow dump truck with a small backhoe a couple of summers ago to help me with some landscaping. 6:30 AM. He'd begun unloading and making noise before I realized what was happening. He woke the neighbors - I know because they told me ;0)

Looks nice. Fast workers. It appears they used ridge vents, that approach should work well to ventilate the attic.

It looks really great and the color is so much better. I'm sure you will love the end result when all the work is done.

We had our roof down on our 2 story house about 2 weeks ago. A storm came along and they kept working. I couldn’t believe it! Heavy rain, thunder, lightning. Omg. It wasn’t a ‘ fly by night’ company. They have been in business for many years and have a stellar reputation, licensed and bonded, insured. That was crazy! I would have rather they came down and we could deal with any leaks later.

Depending on the company lisa your roof may have been done by a sub-contractor. Which is what happened with my last roof.
