Today the “shake style” stone coated metal sections went up lickady split. Honestly, all that hullabaloo the many contractors told us that we couldn’t do it ourselves because we needed “special tools.” Huh! Now that we’ve been hanging around to see their work and how it’s done the next time around we could do the job ourselves and sad to say even do a better job. Actually, we caught a few mistakes they made! Basically, all one needs is a special cutting tool and a few other simple tools; otherwise, it’s practically dummy proof.
This type of metal roofing is much faster and easier to put up than typical asphalt shingles and best of all metal roof is environmentally friendly and are supposed to last 50+ years.
So next time around we’ll be able to install metal roof ourselves.
The workers are coming back tomorrow and should I dare say by the end of the day the roof job will be DONE!
