New roof

This past week we got a new roof and lots and lots of

POUNDING!

5 days of  pounding to be
exact.
I seriously was waiting for a guy to fall though 
my living room.
I really felt bad for these men working in 100* plus weather. 
I gave one guy my husbands t-shirt cause he was wearing a sweater. Yes, a sweater! 
and this guy with a wonderful smile had his truck with his trailer parked in my back-yard  and
another trailer on the side of my house for 
5 days. 

My grass is now in recovery. 


But my roof now looks newer, fresher and cleaner.
so, I won't complain.

  4. Hi Marissa, I totally understand how long that banging can last-we had a new roof five years ago and now we need a new one due to the severe hail storm we had two weeks ago. I'm so thankful for home owners insurance. I remember how hard it was to live when they were putting the roof on. Glad yours went well.
    Hugs today.

  6. It's really hard to work on the roof when the sun is at its peak. But the crew that you got there are already experts when it comes to roofing project like this. I'm pretty sure that they're used to that kind of weather. You see, they even managed to smile despite the fatigue. Well, you got a great result! It simply proves that you hired the right people for the job. Congrats on your new roof! :)

  8. All smiles even while working on your roof! A roofing job isn't an easy one, but seeing that one of your contractors smile like that, assures you that he enjoys his job. Anyway, your new roof made your entire house look polished and fresh. Good job to your roofers!

  15. I can relate to the loud noises of having a roof replaced. We had ours done a few years ago. Isn't it wonderful having a new roof? Makes the house look so much better. That was so nice of you to give that guy a shirt. I'm sure he really appreciated it.

  16. Love the guy with the smile!!! I hate spending money on stuff like roofing, I'd rather it be a new couch or landscaping…..but needed I know. Have a great week, Laura

  17. We had to have our roof replace after a bad hail storm this year. I think our roofers had some musical training because they often kept a pretty good rhythm going. But the downside is I could still hear the hammering in my head at night, long after they were gone for the day!

  18. Marissa, this is the business we are in! We've had a family roofing business for almost 30 years. It is hard work but it's wonderful to see that you appreciate yours. It is surprising how nice people can be to our men. Many bring out lemonade and cookies or a cake hot out of the oven. Of course since our sons are the foremen I think that's because they're so nice!

  20. What pushed you to replace your roof? And how long did it take before you finally had a replacement? Your new roofing system looks great and efficient. Thanks to your crew! A roofing project like this would surely be fun if you are surrounded with jolly people like them! :)

    1. My roof had hail damage on one side and that was our motivation plus it looks much cleaner.

  21. Nothing looks so fine as a new roof! I have a six-year-old roof that has seen cleaner days. The guys who did the roofing look like a happy crew!

  22. You must be so glad it is done finally. When we had ours done last year (wind damage) I about had a nervous breakdown with all the noise.

  23. How nice of you to give one of those men a shirt. And your contractors look a happy group, smiling despite having to stand under the heat of the sun. By the way, they did a good job. Your new roof looks sturdy.
