Roof Replacement for Older Home, the Owner, is Considering adding back Solar Panels

The homeowner called to advise he was ready to move forward with a roof replacement estimate. This roof has a lot of damage to the soffit and roof overhang. These damages result from poor support from corbels and the roof’s age.



This roof came out looking really nice. The roof lines came in looking gray. There is on the step flashing at the walls. We had to use a couple of different mechanisms to fix the new drip edge to the roof, but that ended up looking really nice as well.

This customer is delighted with his new roof. There’s a video of this customer and a testimonial for the new roof we installed. Also, while you’re here, this will be a GAF timberline HDZ mission brown Shingle installed on this home. This color wasn’t the first choice for this customer, but it worked, and we were in a little bit of a squeeze because of the material shortage due to Covid.
