Roof -Before and After

 As you can see from the picture, we went with black shingles for our roof.  I don't think you can tell from the picture but we decided to go with the architectural shingles. Our attached neighbors had told us to pick a shingle we liked, when they were ready to have their roof redone, they would use the same design .  We consulted them on our final decision for the black architectural look and asked whether they would be interested in having the roofers re-shingle their side of the peaked roof.  I am glad that they agreed because it really adds curb appeal now that both sides are uniform.


In the back of our house we have an area of roof that is flat.  The flat roof needed to be stripped and redone as the old roof was rotting away.  This seemed to be ALOT of work as it took one guy several days to complete the area.

All in all we are really happy with the work that was done. If you are looking to have your roof redone, please leave a comment and I would be happy to recommend the crew!


  1. Looks great, the difference is really dramatic.

  2. It is nice working, renovating, designing houses especially dealing the matters of roofing. Northern Virginia, where we live, is a place where you can see beautiful houses that beautifies not just their interiors but as well as their exteriors, where each roof has a siding. Chantilly, our hometown, is such a good place to have a tour when it comes to roof houses.

  3. Love the new look... are you going to change the pic at the top of the blog or leave it with the starting pic?
