A NEW ROOF

GOOD  MORNING  LADIES!

First,  I  wanted  to  mention  that  THE  way

of  posting  using  HTML  doesn't  work  any

more  (for  me  any  way)...it  was  working

  Sunday.

The  "Good  News"  is:  the  other  way  works...

I  hope  it  works  for  a  while.


I  have  to  admit...I  don't  like  change.

If  it  is  working  for  us,  don't  change  it,

PLEASE!

My  little  cottage  wanna-be  needs  a  new

roof/shingles.

Every  one  we  talk  to,  states  to  consider

a  "Metal  Roof!"

I  said,  "A  metal  roof?  You  mean  like

on  an  old  barn"   I  love  rusty  things  and

pictures  of  rusty  things  but  not  a  rusty

roof.   We  would  get  thrown  out  of  the

neighborhood  for  sure.


I  actully  thought  my  husband  was

trying  to  save  a  boat-load  of  money  and

had  bought  the  metal  from  a  barn  being

tore  down...wink, wink, rolling  eyes...oh,  but

he  would.





I  began  to  research  metal  roof's

on-line.

WOW!

1.  They  are  guaranteed  to  last  at  least

50  years....hmmm...I'll  be  58  in  May

and  add  the  50  year  roof...108...I  won't

be  here...it  will  outlast  me.

2.  It  with-stands  120  mph  winds...Okla

has  many  tornadoes  and  high  straight

winds.

3.  It  will  make  your  house  cooler

4.  It  doesn't  allow  the  40 inches  of  snow

to  build  up  or  cave  in  your  roof.

5.  IT  IS  FIREPROOF

I  was  impressed  the  more  I  read  about

it.

The  roof's  come  in  colors.

It  is  more  expensive  than  shingles  but

cheaper  than  tile  or  slate.

We  are  going  to  get  an  estimate.

Whatever  we  choose  I  will  film  the

progress.

Our  little  house  is  needy.  It  has  soooo

very  many  things  needing  to  be  fixed, 

 as  I  am  sure

we  all  do.

The  roof  is  the  biggie.   I  know

that  will  be  a  chunk  of  money.

   The  ceiling  has

leaked  in  two  places  and  left  an  ugly

brown  stain.


IF  ANY  OF  YOU  KNOW  ANYONE

OR  ANYTHING  ABOUT  METAL  ROOF'S...

PLEASE  LET  ME  KNOW...GOOD  OR  BAD

AND  I  WILL  THANK  YOU  FOREVER!


The  Scripture  for  today:

Let  us  therefore  make  every  effort  to  do

what  leads  to  peace  and  to  mutual

edification.

~ROMANS  14:19

St.  Paul  calls  us  to  succeed  at  living

in  peace  and  building  up  one  another  in

the  Christian  faith  and  life.   He  reminds

us  that  doing  what  leads  to  peace  and

mutual  edification  doesn't  just  happen.

We  need  the  power  God  has  given  us  to

do  good  and  help  put  forth  the  effort  to  do

good.

Strengthed  by  His  word,  the  Holy  Spirit,

and  JESUS,  we  pay  attention  to  what

people  need  and  intentionally  do  the  things

that  lead  to  peace  and  the  building  up  of

others.  This  is  our  precious  God  at  work  in

the  lives  of  believers.

Praying  for  each  of  you  and  I  cherish

your  prayers  said  for  me.

Find  beauty  in  the  day.

We  may  get  ice  tomorrow...Oklahoma  needs

moisture...no  matter  how  beautiful

the  ice  can  look...our  home  except  for  the

  dryer

and  hot  water  tank...is  electric.

HUGS  AND  SUNSHINE

There are a lot of them just North of us, Debbie. They are great for snow and last forever. However, as you say, the cost is quite a bit higher. We were going to put one on this house but there were so many angles and places where different roof levels meet up that they didn't want to do it. I will be glad to see what you end up doing. I love a metal roof. My gramma had one and I used to love to open the door to the attic when it was raining outside. It was a wonderful sound. xo Diana

I don't know about metal roofs but they sound good. I doubt they would let us have one here though. Good luck!

Peggy Jones said...

Hi Debbie, our son has one and it is beautiful. Not like the rusty ones you mentioned. Yes they are expensive but would not have the wind damage or loss of tiles like the others. Will enjoy seeing your project.

You are soooo funny! I love your RUSTY MUSE!

In Tennessee they have metal roofs everywhere. My favs are the black and chocolate brown ones with matching shutters. SWEET!

You know what girl...you have blessed me since the day we met. You are such a dear soul and I adore you.

Love, Rebecca

Everyone here is doing them and that's what we are going to do when we need to. 50 years! Yeah, we will be gone, too, by the time it goes. They look really good and there are so many colors!
Go light- it reflects the heat in the summer and the house will be so much cooler!
I have heard nothing bad about them at all.
I think its a no brainer. Let me know if you find anything out otherwise!

The look of metal roofs has really grown on me! I do see quite a few of them, and while I don't have any info on them, it sounds like a good investment!

I'm glad that you came around after you had read more about metal roofs! They are picking up steam as a trend these days, because of how durable and light they are. They do hold up against harsh weather better than some other roof types, and considering how crazy the weather has been in the past 5 years alone, we need as much protection at home as we can get!

I love metal roofs!

I hope you're enjoying the pitter patter of rain under yours!

Oh wow. I bookmarked the Flea Market Gardening site. For some reason I thought it was a book and not a website!

I'm excited to peruse it. Thanks for the tip!

I hope you are well!
