Raise the Roof!

All THREE of them!

And put on a new one!

Jim and Co. from Ideal Roofing start work on September 2nd, and we’re told it will only take three days to completely reinvent 3675’s roof. Keeping our fingers crossed on that one because – really – there are three roofs on our 100-year-old house.

And we’re going for the best! We want ALL the old crap off, all the scary stuff underneath fixed (we know it’s under there), new gutters – the works!

So yeah… Three days.

Hopefully they can reroof our house faster than we picked a shingle sample.

Just promise me you won’t get upset if the tear off involves some “surprises”, because there is always something for which you did not plan. And, then again, you might find some baseball cards in the attic that are worth $1,000. You just never know. When you own a 100 year old house, you gotta keep that sense of humor. It’s all good.

    Fun, Fun, one of the few areas you have left to explore. I agree with Jessica, now would be a great time to look at insulation for the attic, it’s one of the few times you can easily get to all the edges and corners. In the scope of things insulation is relatively cheap.
