Too old for roofing!

Me and dad were talking to a guy today about metal roof. Seems the way to go for the money.

I'll never lay another shingle myself. I go metal with all roof replacements. But I don't like getting on much of any roof these days. I just don't feel so secure off the ground. Why I don't know, I just live with it.

Roof work never gets easier it seems. Today we were putting plywood on a roof. Steeper than we prefer, 12 and 14 pitch.

Roof is done!! Stripped that small section in one day and roofed it up the next. Little harder to work, was steeper, good thing only about 8ft up to peak. did much from ladders and board below till we couldn't reach anymore. When I was putting on the paper it decided to rain, BIG TIME! Was running to garage to get last paper cut to finish and back out in it. The lower layers were running off with water already when I laid that last 10ft of paper at top. Wasn't supposed to rain for 3 days, then this 20 minute store with HUGE drops shows up. I got peak layed over to keep water out and was a wet rag before done. Went back in house and short time later, Sun out big time again and stuff drying out. Didn't take long to dry and was back at it soon. SIL dropped by to assist and we got it all done then. Glad that is done. Think will be last one for me. NOW, one more trailer full of junk to dump. Small GT trailer this time, but unloading is a lot of work by hand, So, GUESS still not really done afterall, ewwww! That will be a week day thing to get to dump with.
