Observations from Everyday Life
You will rest easier knowing that your roof is in good condition, I'm sure! Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for things we don't normally think about until there is a problem with them.
There are a whole lot of out-of-sight, out-of-mind things we take for granted, aren't there?
The roof is one of those really important, really expensive things and the only thing you get out of all that money spent is reassurance. Thankfully they last quite a while.
And protection for all of those other expensive things you've spent money on. :)
It's a good thing to notice before heavy rains with winter. I am thankful to have a roof over my head!
I know that you know better than most of the rest of us how wonderful it is to have a good roof over your head.
In these parts roofs seldom get the chance to wear out on their own. They generally get taken out by hail every 5-10 years... so I am way more familiar with having a roof replaced than I'd like to be! Anyhow, so glad you got it done before winter set in, and that you're safe and dry now!
Occasionally, there's hail storm around here where an entire neighborhood gets a new roof and siding, but we've never had that. The salesmen made a big point about how well their shingles stood up against hail (and wind). I hope we never have to see if they're right.
Yay! Hopefully you got that taken care of before too much snow/rain/what have you! Here's to dry ceilings :)
No snow yet, but the rain keeps coming. So far, so good, but it's hard to tell if there is any new leaking until we get the old damage cleaned up.
