The Roof is on FIYA

Not literally, but definitely figuratively! We had hail in our area earlier this month so I filed a claim with my insurance company and voila! I have a new roof!

We are very happy with the final results...although we ran into a pretty big snag during demo. When they were ripping off the old shingles, they found that the plywood underneath was brittle and rotted...which meant that had to be replaced. You know when you watch shows on HGTV (specifically 'Flip That House') they always warn about the 'unknown of the roof?' Well, this was our unknown, but luckily it was somewhat of a minimal charge to repair. Also want to give a shout out to our roofer, Bulldog Roofing, who helped us through the entire process...from insurance claims, to ventilation, to 'what ifs,' to completion:
They were truly an awesome vendor to work know I would tell you if they weren't. :)

And now for the during shots...Enjoy!
