The Joys of Home Ownership #392

We had the roof replaced this week. A roof replacement has to be one of the least interesting home-maintenance projects one can do (or pay someone to do, rather). Don’t get me wrong: a good roof is essential, and a bad roof can be a nightmare. That’s why we replaced the old roof now, while it still had some life left in it, rather than later, after it had started leaking or something. But it’s really not very gratifying. It’s a noisy, dirty, expensive project, and in the end you have nothing other than a new roof. I don’t know about you, but I just don’t spend much time gazing at my roof. Roofs just don’t hold my interest. I guess having the water heater replaced a couple of years ago was even less interesting, but at least it was done in a few hours rather than in a few days.

Anyway, it’s done now, and I have to say that it looks better than the old one.

Go ahead, try to summarize yourself in a sentence or two.


  1. Looks great.

    Anything that was working fine before, breaks or wears out, and needs to be replaced just to get what you already had before will not make you feel great…
