I wish I could say the most expensive thing we’ve bought for our house is something exciting like furniture, kitchen cabinets or even a new dining room light. Unfortunately, our big purchase last week was a roof. It’s one of those things that is essential to a house (duh) but not the first thing you notice when you look at it.
Aside from the fact that it took a long time to get scheduled for the roof, they did a great job. If you’re looking for roofers in Des Moines, check out Right Roofing. I would definitely recommend the crew who did ours. We don’t have a huge roof, but they did the house and garage in about 7 hours.
This was one of the easiest house purchases Adam and I have made together. We knew we needed a roof, and after we ruled out slate shingles (Adam has expensive taste) we decided to go with the green asphalt shingles. Then it was just a matter of getting estimates and choosing the best company.
I will point out that new roof is green (the old one was red), and I really do think it looks nice (though I’m biased). We still need to pick a color for the new gutters. The current ones are red and kind of blend in with the brick. Should we stick with that or go with green to match the roof and trim?
What’s the biggest house purchase you’ve made?
