New Roof!

Before Pics
Guys! After years of hating my mint green roof we finally got a new one!! As roof replacement tends to go, it was unexpected. We had a big storm in June, and a few of our shingles blew away. We made a claim with our insurance company and were able to get a new roof! We weren’t really prepared to shell out a large amount of cash for our deductible, but this stuff never goes as you plan it, and getting a new roof for a $1,800 bucks isn’t something that should be passed up.

I’ve been pining for a new roof since the day we moved in. I don’t know about you, but mint green roofs aren’t really my thang, especially after we splurged on a new paint job last year. The house was always so close to looking pulled together on the outside but that green roof was harshing my mellow, man.

New Roof
Now we’ve got this tyte grey (“Harvard Slate”, dawgz) roof featuring the newest roof rage – architectural shingles. Now all we need is for our gardens to fill out, our walk and steps to be replaced, a new modern fence, and the curb appeal will be poppin’ of the chiz-ain (all that stuff is cool to say, right?).

    Whoa, lucky!!! It looks so good! We need a new roof too, and every time a storm rolls through I cross my fingers that we’ll have some roof damage. :)

      I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed for a storm that only damages your roof and nothing else!

    Your house is looking fab. We are still plodding along with stuff that needs doing, almost there but need to wait for more funds before we finish things off. It feels like a never ending battle but at least I have got rid of the yucky purple shagpile carpet in the bedroom. So glad that’s gone! x

      Yes, get rid of that carpet! Good for you. Houses are just big projects that take years and years to get the way you want and then you do decide to change it all. I too know the money/funds game well, don’t worry you’ll get there!

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
