Shadow Shot Sunday - Roof Demolition
Shadowy subjects may be artistic or they may be prosaic and ordinary. So my post for this week's Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is the latter - the subject being the installation of our new roof. What is new often requires the removal of something old, that being the existing asphalt shingles, tar paper and plywood underlay. The first action the workers performed was to tack up a blue tarp over the windows shovel the refuse off the roof (the cat hated that noise : )
The day was sunny but quite cold, hence the shadows. However, the three roofing personnel worked diligently and completed the roof in just two days. We needed a roofs the old one was 28 years old, and our insurance carrier Travelers raised our rates substantially since they don't underwrite if the asphalt roof is over 25 years old (most other insurers are at 20 years). Since the mortgage company pays the insurance in March, we can now shop lower rates with other companies and hopefully save a bit of $$. Yay for us, and thanks to Ari Roofing!
