    Finally a new roof.

    Nearly 1 year and 11 months after Hurricane Irma my roof is finally getting replaced. Roofers started yesterday. Stripping down to the rafters, and everything replaced. Hopefully will be done by the weekend. After that is done I will be able to take care of the final interior damage I had from water leaks during the storm. Did not want to fix that knowing the tarps keeping the water out could have been easily ripped off during any rain storm.

    I guess the only good thing about taking so long was I was able to do extra work and odd jobs to pay for the damages without having to tap into my savings or using a credit card.

    A new roof is good to have. I managed to get a free roof for my house by contracting 7 other roofs last year. Mine wasn't leaking but had a lot of age on it.

    Down to the rafters?
    What kind of roof? My cousin's house has a metal roof on Dauphin island AL. It was a year old for Katrina and was fine unlike most of the island.

    It is diffenetly good to fix the roof first. That way the inside will stay dry. Glad you were able to replace it with having to go into debt for it.

    I had a wood roof with 30 year asphalt shingles. The wood was that cheap particle board stuff that I can't believe was approved for roof structure especially in humid areas.

    New roof will be 3/4" CDX and Kynar 500 coated 5V crimp metal.

    I'll be doing a roof in a few years. I'd think metal, had a metal roof in Port Lavaca that lasted two hurricanes so far and the guy still has the metal on it. But, I'm not in a hurricane zone being 70 miles inland and if I put a 30 year roof on it, I likely won't live another 30 years.

    Insurance companies have a lot to do with what materials are used in various areas. I agree with you completely.

    One product that should be outlawed in areas of humidity extremes, like Lubbock has, is Pressure treated Lumber and decking of any kind, unless bolted to the slab as a bottom framing plate, should not be allowed. That stuff just wants to go everywhere (at least in Lubbock).

    Everytime I see someone in any home improvent store with a cart loaded with the stuff, I want to ask what kind of project they are doing and go into a rant on why they need to put it back and step up to the plate for cedar or redwood, but I don't as I practically live in Home improvent stores as many remodels as I am doing. Pressure treated wood products work well in heavy humidity areas, but we have from 17% average humidity and from there to a 100%. Few wood products hold up on the exterior here.

    My insurance company replaced my roof several years ago due to a hail storm. They paid for the roof and for the damage to the interior.

    Doesn't your insurance cover your inside?
