The mothership has landed?

I'm putting it on the market next month.  It's sizzling white hot up here.  I just hope i get in before it starts to drop.  I don't really want to refinance a roof if I don't have to.

That is the one DIY project I won't do. Utmost respect for people who get up on a a roof in Florida in July!

Although, I say that now...

If a hurricane came through, insurance increases deductible $5000 and roofers have so much business that they increase price by $10,000, with a 6 month delay on the job. If faced with looking at blue tarps for 6 months with them falling apart and leaking, would be very tempted to DIY.

Yeah.  I'm not either.  Plus I'd fall on my phat arse and kill myself.  Oh well.  It needs to be done.

Is the roof done?  Any moss growing on it yet?

I think it takes them a total of 3 days.  This is day number two amigo.  And they basically take the afternoons off.  It's been in the 80s here and that kind of heat around here can stifle guys.

I purchased the material and hired a contractor to install it. He and his partner had it done in a couple days. Came back for one more day to do the garage.

Well I don't have friends and the contractors here rip you off. Did you put a whole new roof down or didja just reshingle?

His is a metal roof.  Installing a metal roof properly requires skill and knowledge. Took my friend a few years to realize he needed to use longer screws than recommended and to modify his base layer to get the roof to last. As I have mentioned before, insurance companies do not pay for cosmetic damage after a hail storm, but will pay if the hail causes leaks in the metal roof. The last roof we had installed was of the higher quality shingles, and insurance payback or reduction in home owners covered the price difference in 5 years. Hopefully my roof will outlast me.
