Repairing Storm Damage

Reroofing Home
Originally uploaded by Pictures by Ann

The start of re-roofing and re-siding has begun on the home. The home was hit twice in May by hail and high winds, resulting in a total re-do of the exterior of the home - the roof and siding.

The strips of exposed wood show where insulation is being blown into the home. About every foot, a hole was drilled and insulation was blown into the walls. In some areas, there was literally NO insulation. Needless to say, it should be warmer this winter.

See that flimsy green insulation? Apparently it has an R value of 2 (I think that's what it was called).

See how it doesn't cover the entire house...how it has all those large gaps between the insulation? That's because it wasn't properly done the first time.

Now I'm beginning to understand why the propane bill has been so incredibly high for all these years.

Will be nice to have the job completed.

You are fortunate that yours was getting repaired. Ours is a tyvec mess right now and our roof needs to be done too. I keep hoping that soon it will be done. But with the economy and hubby wanting to do it himself...well...I guess I need to be patient. Very glad for you!
