We Have A New Roof!

Hurricane Matthew left a path of destruction behind especially in some areas. We weren't in the worst area for sure but it did leave some damage. We now have a new roof and I wanted to show it to you. I know we're excited about a roof! Drum roll please!
Original Roof
We might not have planned this now but due to Hurricane Matthew we had to replace the roof a lot sooner. You know just one of those things. It was extremely hard to get the contractors and roofers out because South Carolina was really effected by this storm. Most were just too busy. Lots of trees down to this day. I see new roofs that have been replaced or are being replaced.
We found an excellent roofer and are so glad to have that part of the construction done! We are using Crescent Construction from Columbia, S. C. Henry Branham is overseeing our work. We are very pleased with the roof.
The original roof had traditional shingles in a color called Black Shadow. Grey in color to me. They fade in time especially where the sun shines down the brightest and hottest.
The new roof has architectural shingles in a color called Charcoal. We really like the new darker color and type of shingle. Hibiscus House has a more formal appearance now with the black and white.
We debated putting a tin roof on the house and a friend who does that type of roofing came out fairly quickly. We thought that would look really good on the house, especially the way it sits far back from the road. I couldn't decide on a color and was torn between red, green, or black. I still think the tin roof would look great but after much thought we decided to go with the architectural. The Architectural Shingles are simple yet beautiful!
