We own a very old century home here in town.
- It’s always been our dream home and we waited around until it went on the market last summer.
Then we bought it! It’s been very exciting for us to take on the house as a project together, and my husband and I have really been enjoying it. One of the biggest projects that we had to take on was doing the roof restoration. You can’t just put any old roofing materials on a century home and expect it to look right. Putting the wrong roof on an older century home can be a big mistake, so we called around to different local roofing companies here in town until we found one that specializes in roof replacement and roof restoration. The roofing contractor that we used ended up being fantastic to work with. I think that once he saw our amazing house, he wanted the roof restoration to look as great as we wanted it to. He took a lot of time and care with doing the roof restoration job, and by the time we were finished with it, the house looked totally amazing. Now, we are starting to replace all of the windows and doors. It’s a long, painstaking process for us, but I know that it’s all going to be worth it once we are finished! I’m really glad that we were able to find the right roofing contractor for the roof restoration job. He really set the tone for the rest of the projects that we’re going to have to do.
