Roof: Before

I decided to suck it up and post before pictures of the roof. I like looking at the before and afters.

However, it's been raining for the last 2 days and is going to continue to rain through the much for having a new roof by Sunday night.

That tree on the side of the house had limbs resting on the roof and on really windy days in the winter time you could hear them scrap across the roof. It was rather scary to listen too.

Don't judge how rough the roof looks and the missing fascia.

  1. Yikes! That looks like a roof in need of replacing! Hope the rain subsides soon.

  2. Any updates on the roof repairs? What kind of roof had you replaced it with? It would be great to see how good you guys did on your roof. Also, trees can cause many problems for almost all roof types. Branches that lean on the roof will scratch and gouge roofing materials when they are blown by the hard wind. Falling branches can damage and even puncture shingles too, while the leaves can clog the gutters. It would be good to take steps to quickly trim the branches away from the roof.

  3. Yes! Great job with the roof! Always mind the trees that grow near your house, since branches can poke your roof and damage it. Also, be wary of the leaves that fall and end up in your gutter. Leaves may clog your gutter and damage the integrity of your roof.

  4. I agree with Lino, so it would be best to cut the tree branches that are beginning to look like they’re going to poke your roof. Cutting some branching overgrowths will also help to deter falling leaves from clogging your gutter. It will be like hitting two birds with one stone.

  5. Looking at the pictures gave me the impression that your roof seems to be in bad condition. I hope that by this time, you were able to replace it already. When repairing or replacing your roof, try to check if the gutter’s still intact and if your ceiling isn’t soiled from any leaks. If you find any problems, be sure to remedy them immediately.
