The New Roof

This post was going to have pictures of the house with it's roof half done. But as you can see, Rick's Main Roofing was able to get the whole thing done in a day.

The crew showed up a little before 8:00AM and immediately got to work. Both Valerie and were leaving for the day, but we fully expected to come home to a house with half of the roof done and half not done.

At about 9:30AM, I got a call from the foreman. The plywood on the left side of the house had de-laminated after 40 years. In other words, the layers of plywood had started to separate from each other. So, of course we had to replace that.

We also had them cover up the skylight in our bedroom. It was the stupidest placement and was probably the cheapest skylight on the market. I was just waiting for it to start leaking.

When Valerie got home about 5:30PM, they were just finishing up. The whole thing! Other than the dumpster in the driveway, you'd never know they were here.
