Running out of time to get the roof done before the ins. cancels my policy, so here goes... Few before pics.
And here's whats going back on it.
Spent the day ripping the old roof off.
But mad sure to stay hydrated...
Even had a little help.
Didn't even need to use a ladder. NEW that door would come in handy!
Wife looked at me a little weird though as I walked through the house
wearing the backpack blower. Maybe I should have had it running?
Got 'er all ripped off except for the edges under the piles of shingles. Waiting for the dumptruck to show up at this point.
The dumptruck. Well, this was exciting. Borrowed it from the teacher
across the hall- let me use it free of charge for helping him bleed the
brakes. Brakes are still marginal at best, and as I was pulling out of
his yard he told me to go slow over any bumps or the front end will
start to death wobble. Great. 11 miles to go...
Made it home fine though. Great old rig!
Got the roof all swept off, parked the truck under an eave, and thats it until Monday.
We picked a great day for doing this, no wind and lower temps made it nice
work. We are replacing the old metal / shingle roof with all metal,
black so it kinda matches the rest of the house which is shingled.
Don't have the time or the money at the moment to do the carport with
shingles to match the house, but it's in the back so we'll be the only
ones who ever see it and it won't bother me that much.
Have the rest of the week to finish pushing the shingles in and strip whats under the piles. Sounds like I have some help showing up Saturday to lift the metal sheets up on the roof and tack them in place.
