Roof roof

Comments Off

[Today’s run: Watson Road 3.5 miles]

The roofers came early this morning and started on our roof.  We opted for the “architectural” shingles which both the insurance adjuster and the roofer said would last longer and look better.  They have a bit more pattern than the flat shingles and are made thicker also.

The roofers had a dump-truck-like vehicle but instead of the back tipping up it was on a jack mechanism and the whole box would go straight up in the air.  So no hauling singles up or down.  They just jacked up the truck bed and worked from that right on to the roof.

They were able to do what looks to me like more than half of the job.  Only the north side of the main roof and the west of the garage gable are left.  Most of the capping has yet to be done.  So they should finish up easily tomorrow.
