New Roof

Y'all, our roofers have left me amazed. First, they worked more than 13 hours yesterday under the hot Texas sun. Second, they came back this morning and got up on the roof in the midst of a storm to tack tar paper up over everything they'd left undone last night. We're talking thunder and lightning here, and they were up there to make sure nothing leaked!

Once the storm let up a bit, they got right back up there and finished the job. In addition to a new roof, we now have a new chimney box. The old one was rotted, so it had to be replaced so they could attach the new flashing (whatever that is) to it.

I think they did a great job, and I'm very pleased with their work! And based on what all they had to do, I totally understand why a new roof costs so much money. (Hooray for insurance!)

It's a huge enterprise, huh?

How wonderful that they provided such good, quick work and such great service. So rare these days, but so welcome!

Looks great!
