Roof Job, post 2

Here's the progress so far. Jerry found a couple of spots of water damage under the old roof, so I suppose it's a good thing we're doing this project now and not trying to make it through another rainy season. (eeek!) He just informed me that I'll need to go back out later and take more pics, because it'll look different. You GO guy!

In this picture, Jerry's priming the end sheets that go on the rafters. He's replacing all of them on the whole house.

This shot shows the tricked out utility line connection Jerry finished last night.

Looking good so far!

This picture shows one of the new shingles (and Jerry's left toe). It's CertainTeed's premium 50-year architectural shingle in Heather. We think it'll look great, especially after we paint the house a light mossy green.

Jerry shows off his complex cut - our house doesn't have a regular A-frame roof - it's got hips and angles and eaves...all the little things that make doing your own roof that much more challenging...and special!

Your roof was looking good! It was amazing how your husband could build the roof. And it is true that doing this project early, before the rainy season, is a good thing. The spot of water damage can be troublesome if left unattended. Leaks can start that can damage not only your roof but also the walls. And by the way, I like the looks of your shingles; I think it would be perfect with the light mossy green house paint you want.
