We finally took the plunge and got the new roof on the house and garage and siding on the front dormer!
We finally decided to go with our friends who helped us with our last house, and we are so happy we did. We now have our new roof.
We had a difficult time picking our shingles… Do we match the existing blue or do we shoot for the new color, yellow? We tried to balance both colors, but ultimately chose ‘Hickory’ architectural life-time shingle with a 50 year warranty, which right now aren’t the best match for the blue, but will go best with the yellow we plan to paint in the near future.
We also chose to not repeat the shingles on the dormer, but put fiber cement siding with a weather resistant hardiboard and white trim. The paint is still on the to do list for now, but not for long.
A few other pieces we were able to cross of the list were the chimney with a new chimney liner, cap and tuckpointing
