The Barn Roof is Done!

After 6 months and 2 days, the barn roof is finally done.  You may recall that we had a ferocious hailstorm on the 4th of July.
We had damage to all roofs, including the horse trailer.  The house roof was repaired in a day and a half.  The barn roof made me crazy.  There was a problem ordering materials and a problem scheduling.  Finally we got a date, and we moved the horses to neighbor Chuck's for what was supposed to be a day or two.  Thank goodness the horses were happy there, and Chuck was happy to have them, because we were there for 8 days.  And the roof wasn't done.  The bottom 3 panels had been bent on delivery.  Meanwhile, winter was upon us.  The replacement panels came in and we had a date for completion last week, but alas, it was a windy day.  Then today we got a break.  It's sunny, in the 50s, and there's no wind.
It took 2 1/2 hours to complete the job after waiting for months.  I am so glad that the roof is finally done, complete with replaced insulation.  What an ordeal.  If you ever need a roof, don't use AJ Roofing.

What a long ordeal for sure. I can’t believe you just got it finished. I have lived this story and feel your pain. Good for you for posting the company name. People need to know these contractors that are not reliable and there are a lot of them!

That was a long wait! Unfortunately, to switch contractors doesn't always work either as some are reluctant to take over a started project. Thankfully, it is done!

Hooray! I'm so glad that the roof is done. My goodness, that was quite the saga, wasn't it? Let's hope for no more hail storms, OK?

That sure took them long enough! That really is ridiculous for them to lolly-gag around like that. Glad they finally got the job done!

What a relief. I hope you didn't pay them 'til the job was done to your satisfaction. 50! I'm jealous.

Glad to read it is done - and wow, what a cool barn - inside and out. I love the way your property sits and your view, and it appears your "isolation"..just beautiful.
