It's been a long time coming. Our tar paper was flapping in the wind!
Our siding guys finished enough for the roofer to come. I had let him know we'd be ready this week, but he had a couple commitments. Monday night I get a text from him asking if material was delivered and he'd have a crew there in the morning. I had originally told him I would get the material on site Monday afternoon, but weather was predicted to be rainy Tuesday and Wednesday, so I rescheduled delivery to Thursday.
Tuesday morning, I scrambled to get a shingle delivery that same day. The roofing crew went to do another job first and by lunch time, the shingles were delivered and the crew started.
In half a day, they almost finished. It started to rain so they packed up.
They came back Wednesday and finished the front part of the garage.
I am just amazed! We have a roof!
The shingle color was not my first choice. I really wanted GAF - Timberline American Harvest in Cedar Falls. It was beautiful. But the company couldn't give us production dates and there wasn't enough in inventory to cover my roof. So, I went with a shingle they had in stock that could be delivered same day. It's GAF - Timberline High Definition in Weathered Wood.
I like it. It does have a greyish-brown coloring to it.
And if you notice, we got our stairwell window installed on Tuesday!!
It does just what I thought it would to the inside loft area.
We still have metal roofing to install on the porch areas and birdboxes. I have been having a hard time having contractors call me back.
Our builder did want us to wait until we got the painter started at least before installing the shingles, but I was tired of putting off the roofer when he was eager and available. I'm so glad I went ahead with it.
I definitely recommend my roofer. He beat everyone's price and was so thorough with great customer service. Local friends, if you need a roofer, let me know and I'll give you his information. I HIGHLY recommend him and his team!
Next up... the painters have started caulking the siding and we'll have paint soon!
