The crew from Armor Metal Roofing showed up early Friday morning 05/27/21 to pull all of the shingles off our roof, and replace it with a new standing seam metal roof.
Even though the roof was only 15 years old, its wear is evident due to the pretty nasty weather we get on top of the little mountain we live on.
Many shingles have begun to disintegrate, and even become dislodged. Not good....
The dumpster was dropped yesterday, Thursday the 26th just as Nick was finishing up his mowing.
Right after the roofing crew arrived, the materials arrived.
The metal roofing panels and insulation material were put in the driveway for easy access by the crew.
It didn't take long for the crew to get the drop tarps hung, and to start stripping off the shingles as Glenn, the owner of Armor Metal Roofing, checks the site at 8:50 am.
4 hours later at 12:50 pm, the front of the house not only has been scraped, but you can see where new underlaying wood had to be replaced. By the time the rear of the house had been done it was evident that the original installation of the roof had been poorly done.
A couple of hours later at 2:50 pm, the crew had a little over a third of the roof covered.
And 2 hours later at 2:50 the front of the house was done, and the site totally cleaned up.
Looks great! Tomorrow: the back of the house!
The crew were setting up the staging in the back at 8:00 am Friday morning 05/28/21, and by 9:00 am had a good start on stripping the shingles off.
I took this picture just after 11:00 am and you can see all of the repairs to the underlying frame that had to be done.

Crew taking a short break for lunch.
Before breaking for lunch, they had gotten the entire roof scraped, patched, water and insulation layers installed, and the small flat roof over the screen porch completed with metal.
Quite the pile of debris...
But by 6:00 pm, not only had they been able to complete about a third of the entire back side of the house, but the entire site was cleaned. Because this was Memorial Day Weekend they wouldn't be back until Tuesday to finish up. They would have come back Saturday, but since rain has been forecast for the entire weekend, they put a water resistant covering over the incomplete part of the roof before wrapping up and heading for home.
Finally completed, and looks terrific.
