"Photo not available" made me laugh out loud!

The shingles (the house kind) look great! I think hail storms are so fun. I didn't grow up in an area with hail, so when we moved to Austin, I thought, "Cool! Ice balls falling from the sky!" Got caught in a hail storm while tubing one day. Best tubing memory ever.

Shingles, huh? Is that what they are calling STDs these days? ;)

Midwest Mommy said...

Oh I had shingles when I was younger. I feel your pain!

Oh, Anna, I'm so sorry to hear that you have Shingles! I hope you feel better, soon! (Perhaps the Shingles will distract folks from the inch of gray?)

I have never had them, but I know a couple of people who have, and I hate to say it, but it was awful for them. Painful. Hang in there and feel better soon.

I’m sorry to hear that, but it’s been almost two years since the incident happened and I’m sure you are doing great now! Let’s talk about the good effects of your shingles; they look more durable and able to withstand stronger weather conditions. Its color is also perfect for your house! Definitely a good choice!

I like the outcome! The color of the shingles really matches with the exterior color of your house. Likewise, it made your whole house look fresh! Isn’t it wonderful? I hope that your roof is still in great condition. Do your best to keep it that way! :)

Well, sometimes, some bad things are really blessings in disguise, right? And I guess it was also a good time to finally replace your old roof. By the way, regularly check your gutters and shingles, so that these will not accumulate debris and dirt that can clog them and cause damage. :)

I hope that you are feeling better now, Anna. Getting new shingles can be tough! Regarding the “good” shingles, I think you made a wise decision of replacing them. Hailstorms and other naturally degrading such as rain and wind can wreak havoc on your roof. I think the new one looks good on your home. The dark blue shingles matched the white sidings and the brick wall.

Looks like you had some major roof renovation! And I think it is a smart decision. Once the hail and other natural elements wreak havoc on your roof, there is a chance that the strength and sturdiness of the roof are compromised. Replacing the roof would be the way to go to preserve the integrity of the structure inside.
