As some of you already know, thanks to the Facebook fiend that my hubby is the new roof did go on this past week. Now that we no longer are hearing the
My current frustrations with the having to put a new roof on my house is two fold.
1. Fourteen years ago, the HOA of this neighborhood mandated that the roof HAD to be wood shake.
Then a few years later, after 1000's of subdivisions around Johnson County, Kansas had 10s of thousands of homes with wood shake roofs, the insurance industry said they wouldn't insure the roofs or if they did it would cost you up the wazoo. Warning, Warning, Fire Hazzard!!!!
|Remember the house four doors down from a previous post?|
Wood shakes really make good tinder.
So, THEN we all got hit with huge surcharges and higher deductibles on our roofs. In fact, the deductibles in some cases would pretty much have you paying for your new roof if there was a ....you guessed it...a hail storm.
As our entire neighborhood had their roofs demolished in April, the wood shake roofs are disappearing one by one.
So, no longer can the neighborhoods have rules to mandate wood shakes because... tsk tsk...they aren't safe.

The Good for the Day...Pounding has stopped.
The Bad for the Day..Actually for the last three days, storms have been going through. What is the record for the shortest life span on a roof?
The Weird for the Day.....Kansas weather.
I was looking for a video about "roofs" when I happened to think about James Taylor's Up On the Roof. Of course, that led me to also think of his song Fire and Rain. Too bad, that song wasn't Fire, Rain and Hail.
