Hustad Roofing Makes Quick Work of My Roof

Last year Kim and I put our house on the market, and although we had a lot of interested people look at it no one could get financed in the middle of the credit crunch.

old_shake_shinglesWe plan on attempting to sell the house again next Spring, so the name of the game right now is to make the improvements that will help us sell the house quickly at a fair market price.

Our Realtor told us that one of the biggest concerns about the house was that the roof was at the end of its lifespan.  We had a cedar shake roof that was designed to last 30 years.  It was put on in 1982, so it really was about time to have some work done.

The whole removal process took less than a couple hours, and the new roof was on by the end of the day.

Hustad had laid tarps on the ground to catch the nails, shingles and paper that was being torn off for a quick, easy and complete clean up.

Overall I was very impressed with the job they did, and the pictures speak for themselves.

    Good idea replacing your roof. When you want to sell your house, you want to make it look as good as possible. You don’t want to leave little issues that could bring down the price or give potential buyers doubts.
