Metal roof....half done.


Recommended Posts

My son went out Friday night to his remote cabin to start prepping for the new metal roof. He got far enough along that I went out there today and we got one side finished in a few hours. It's the side with the chimney so had some cutting to do and installed the new silicone flashing. Also rescued a Husky dog that has been missing it's owner for a couple weeks. The handsome boy is chilling in an outdoor kennel at my house. Plenty of food and water, plus a frozen moose bone to gnaw on. He ain't going anywhere till his person shows up tomorrow.

No roof shoveling and better fire protection are the 2 biggest reasons we are going to metal. The fact that they look nice is a bonus.

We put one on the chicken coop this past weekend.  It looks real nice... and now I'm not worried about the dang raccoons tearing themselves another hole (I lost 3 chickens this past week before I figured out what was going on).  When this house needs a new roof - it's getting steel, too.  But the house will get a green one.  The coop got red.

They were reunited today. He got a walk around my neighborhood with me and my dog. I kept him on a leash cause I figured he would bolt. Huskys have a mind of their own.

Yes they do. Ours would take off every now and then. Wander the wilderness for a few hours I guess and then come home. Often with wounds and always looking very proud of himself.

I told my wife the coyotes around us are going to end up being half breeds next year.

I put a  metal roof on our house because of the 40 year warranty.  It will outlast me

I put a 30 year roof on the house I am selling.  I explained to my daughter, that it would need replacing when she is 44, not that it matters.  By that time, I will have lost the game of chess to the Reaper myself.

I have a shingle roof on the house I'm living in. I built this house in 1986. It still has the original shingles. I bought the heaviest ones I could find at the time because I am on top of a hill overlooking Cook Inlet. It can, and does, get windy here at times. In 2012 we had winds clocked at well over 100 mph.

Your roof has held up well.
