Long story short, we needed a new roof. But we couldn't afford to pay it in full, so our options became limited as we looked around for companies that would finance. We had three different quotes given to us- all financing options- and after weighing the options for a few days, we went with our first quote.
Here is a picture of our old roof. Looks can be deceiving! This roof looks to be in good shape from here, but if you inspected it, you could see that it was old (I think around 15 years old) and needed to be replaced. It was time for a new one, even though we wished it wasn't.
So, we went with a company called Andres Roofing, located in Chicago. They finished the job in 2 days which included a tear-off, putting the new roof on and adding all new gutters (which added a bit to the final price).
The new shingles (Timberline HD) come with a lifetime warranty and are in HD- which just means there is a little more texture and color to them. We picked the color Pewter Gray.
Here is a picture of the new roof. It was really hard to get a good shot because our tree is so luscious right now. We went with a little bit of a darker color and I really like how it turned out.
Now we can rest easy with a new roof over our heads. We are thankful.
