Tuesday is my 3rd full re-roof, got 2 in the pipe. Just signed a contract today for a porch repair; 7.33 squares, 4:12. It’s an 1890’s Victorian with a 1/4 wrap around porch & there’s issues on 2 areas.

The fun part is going to be working with the old point flashing around 2 round columns.

Included up to 2 pieces of 3/4" deck (to match the 1x solid plank or shiplap deck that was installed somewhere around the last century) & up to 40 lin. ft. of plank decking, plus 12 lin. ft of Hardie fascia & around 20 ft. or so of truss or rafter work.

Soffit, too… 20 lin. ft of that as well. Ply type, no Hardie wanted there. I may post photos later on another thread.

Things were slow in December through mid January, what with people wanting to spend on Xmas & get over that hump, but things are moving back into action lately.

As long as there are houses, there will be a need to fix them in one way or another. If you are solely dependant on new construction, you’ll feel the pain of market swings more than anyone else (Roof Buster, are you listening?).

Hi Gweedo,

That is tough. Hope things turn around for you.
