    Yeah those are awesome. Had them on indoor cell sites, so if you are in a sketchy area you can see quite a bit and without putting your eye in harm's way.

    If at all possible I wouldn't mind some pics. My house is a Cape but the part above the bathroom and weight room is where I have issues so I'd get that part of it metal..no fucks given about it looking different since that part is higher up so you wouldn't really see it

    Old pic but this was when they were installing it. Looked kinda bland before I painted the house And got everything finished. I was waiting on the roof to be done before I finished the house. Haha The trim isn’t installed here either but you get the point.

    Around here those are called 100-year roofs. Driving through the country you see a lot of 100+ year-old houses with original metal roofs because fuck hail.

    That's what worries me about my roof. Every roof in our neighborhood has been replaced because of "hail damage". Every... single... roof....

    Because my wife and I have been at home the vast majority of the time just because of the nature of my job and the nature of her job, I "know" that it hasn't actually hailed hard enough here to damage the roof. The largest hail we have seen here has been about dime size and that's it. But when we get it replaced it will be replaced because of "hail damage" and the insurance will pay for it. It's a scam as far as I can tell. It's wrong but it's what will happen. I've tried to wait until we move in two years to have the roof replaced then, but I can't wait another two years. It has to be replaced this year. When I was cleaning out the gutters in the fall it looks fine and the roof is not leaking anywhere. But the shingles are brittle. A 20 year roof is good for about 12-15 years here. So, when I have it replaced this year, what happens if we actually get a hail storm? I'll have to have it replaced again. That is one reason that I really wanted to wait as long as I could before replacing it. But I can't wait another year.

    It looks fine but it is unbelievable how much gravel I've pulled out of the gutters the last couple of years. And because of the HOA I can't have a metal roof. I don't mind that because it would stand out in our neighborhood. All the houses have to have architectural shingles. That's fine because I want every house to look similar so our property value remains the same.

    Since I'm never going to buy another house again, I hope this is the last time I ever have to fuck with something like this. Home ownership might be the American dream. But it isn't my dream anymore.

    Do you know what the pitch of the roof is? My guess from the photos is it would be 6 on 12 pitch. In our area, anything above 8 on 12 and there is an extra charge.
    Personally, I won't go above 6 on 12 if I build another house. It's just not worth the hassle when it's time to re-shingle.

    Very nice. Any rough guess how big the roof is?

    For ours, we will have extra cost because I think it was originally sheeted with thin material. If we remove the shingles, it will get new 1/2”- 3/4” ply. There is no reason for it to give when I get up there to do stuff on the roof. I was super worried about it the first time I got up, but never seen a leak in the attic.

    The vast majority of the roof is an 8/12 pitch. Only a small portion of the back of our house over the porch is 6/12. Our house has so many different angles on the roof that I'd hate to re-roof it. But every house in our neighborhood is exactly like mine. It's just a fad with the tall roofs on houses that will eventually look weird in 40-50 years. I literally have enough room in my attic for a second floor. The lowest ceiling we have in the house is 10'. The highest is 17' in the living room. In the attic above our living room it is about 20' from the ceiling rafters to the top of our house. We almost have more room in our attic then we have in the house :rolleyes:

    Oh... and I have to replace our attic ladder because the fat fuck that put in our security system split our attic ladder on the side so I can't even climb up into the attic right now. I have to use my ladder to get into my attic until I get it fixed. You can't just buy a ladder for the attic. You have to buy the entire fucking assembly.

    New homes in our area are using 19/32 OSB for decking. I can't remember on ours but we may have that too. It is definitely sturdy enough. Just too steep to feel comfortable walking on it now that I'm...older.

    I need to replace the one in my shop too. I looked at a Werner from Lowe's. It has an aluminum ladder that retracts.

    They didn't have any at Home Depot when I went look. I still haven't done it yet. It's a 2 person job.

    Yes and my back is killing me right now. I definitely feel older than 50. LOL
    EDIT: At least it's not prostates or laxatives.

    That is exactly what I'm looking for. Fuck a wooden ladder. I can't tell you how many I've broken while climbing up into an attic in a house fire. I weigh 180 lbs but when you have on all your gear you can add another 90 lbs to that. And when your busting your ass to get up into an attic? They are going to break. We always had an "A" frame ladder standing by just in case.
