While this roof doesn't look that bad, it definitely needed to be replaced. The underpinnings of it had rotted (probably from moisture from the huge hot tub in the basement after 20+ years), and although it didn't leak (yet), our contractor son, Tony, had let us know when he did a minor repair on it last year that it was "Squishy" when he walked on it.
So Tony made time for us in his busy summer building season to replace the roof. Our grandson, Jesse, is following in his dad's footsteps, and is the hardest working 21 year old man I know. They do amazing work in a real short time. Tony stripped the old roof, resheeted it, and put new metal on, while Jesse hauled debris away, lugged plywood to hand up to Tony on the roof, and counselled all the sightseers who dropped by. They did all this in one and a half days including driving over from Eastern Washington to do the job.
I'm pretty sure a good mother wouldn't put her son on a dangerous roof to work in 90 degree (in the shade) weather, but I'm always proud of him and his excellent work and willingness to drop everything to come to our rescue.
All done and it looks so good - enjoyed admiring it from the lake as I swam today!
