SO---this year, we got a new ROOF. Hopefully, we are finished with these big jobs for awhile, except for the staining of the deck which we hope to do sometime this summer... (We have given up some of our longer travel plans for this!!!) Who was it that said the we don't own the house; the house OWNS US.. ha ha (TRUE!!!)
Today, I'll share photos with you from the installation of the roof. We had been waiting for a few weeks for the roof---but Mother Nature wasn't cooperating... SO--on Monday, July 8, 2013, the sun came out --AND a large crew came to give us a new roof. They got here at 8 a.m. ---and had it totally finished by 3:15 p.m. We were SO impressed with their work --and they did a fabulous job of the clean-up. I would highly recommend A-1 Roofing (Crossville, TN) to others in our area who need a new roof.
They had originally said that it would take about two days. BUT--with our crazy weather this summer, they doubled up on the crew and got it done in one day. AND---we are glad they did it this way since we had some rain that night at 6:30 p.m.!!!!! Crazy weather!!!! And--since we got the new roof, we have had some rain most every single day!
The photo above shows some of the crew working on the roof... George and I both slipped out of the house and took some photos of them working. They backed the big truck up to the house to collect all of the old shingles and old skylights. They also had big tarps around the house to collect anything that dropped from above. They had a little elevator (with the help of a generator) which took all of the shingles up on the roof. They seemed very organized and all of these guys had their own jobs---and all worked hard!! (Be sure to click on all photos for enlargements.)
Hope you have a good weekend... I will see you on Monday!!!
