After the last two days of non-stop rain, and no end in sight, I can really say I’m feeling at ease about our recent purchase: a new roof.
When budgeting for what projects we’d be focusing on in the first few months, it really, really hurt to find out that our roof was on its last leg. Not that a roof isn’t important, but what’s sexy about a flat roof that you’ll never see? Yeah, you get my point.
Bathrooms, light fixtures, floors, kitchens, heck, even just paint, are things that stand out and make a visible difference. They remind you every day of the progress you’ve made. Not so much with a roof.
But after much deliberation, we bit the bullet and just did it. We may have to give up some pipe dreams for the time being, but at least we’ll be dry at night and not risk potential leaks down the road.
Maybe we’ll have to make it a point to get up on that roof once in a while just to appreciate it.
I can’t say enough good about our roofer, at least, who got his crew to work overtime to get the roof done before the week of rain came. On top of that, he photo documented everything for us. He made the process much less painless than it could have been.
But the good news: the alligator-skinned roof, is no more!
And look at all that garbage! Apparently this was only about 1/4 of it.
