We did it...we got a new roof!  Actually it was time to take the slate shingles off our 1939 house.  I had no idea that slate shingles were so rare and apparently SO EXPENSIVE.

Of course, I forgot to take a photo of the before; however you can see the old roof on the lower roof and the new roof on the top.  BIG IMPROVEMENT!
I guess the shingles were as old as our house and had we put slate back on our house, it would have cost just over $50,000.  That's right...instead we paid about $5,000.  NOT BAD.

And, I think it looks good.  It helps to have a contractor next door--he can help us with all of these projects and knows the people to do the jobs.  

Next up, we plan to put on new gutters and also put in new cement.  Our curb appeal will be out of this world!
