A New Roof for the Huebsch Hacienda

Last week, a crew finished putting a brand new roof on our house – how exciting! So we went from our old gray, dingy roof:

to a lovely new GAF 50-year shingle in the color Driftwood:

A new roof is really good news for a couple of reasons:

1. Last year our roof certification showed 3-4 years left on the life of our roof. Our homeowner’s insurance requires a minimum of 3 years, so they were not going to renew our policy this year unless we got a new roof. So new roof = insured house = able to sleep at night.

2. We decided to remove all 4 old skylights. Two were leaky and have caused damage to our ceiling and walls. Every time it rained we ran to get trash cans to place under the leaks (insert theme song from “Green Acres” here). Now with no more leaks, the reno work on the ceiling and walls won’t get damaged – yay!

It took the crew 6 days, and Jim supervised the whole job well πŸ˜‰ I have to say that I would recommend Lambert Roofing to anyone in the Clearwater area – we were very happy with the job they did.
