The roof is so shiny . . .

Oh the roof. The good news is that it's now all fixed up. The bad news is that it cost an arm...and a leg. Maybe a couple toes of the other foot too. The turret and mansard portions of the roof have been completely rebuilt, and some nice copper flashing was added as well.  While it's a nice feeling to know it's all taken care of, this project was a little bit less satisfying since we can't really see the finished product everyday. Anyway, I'll let the photos speak for themselves:

Wow. Ouch. But, it's a small price to pay for peace of mind. Right?

Benny said...


Yes, that's true.

Even if it did cost you an arm... and a leg, at least your roof's all fine now. It's going to serve you well for a long time. Just like what Melissa said, it's for peace of mind.
