Roofing is a nasty business. Anyone who does this for a living deserves every stinking dime, I tell ya.
SM and I had planned on kicking out the roof Friday but only managed to get 2 sheets down before I told SM to get down for two reasons.
One...I'd never seen SM sweat that heavily before. Asphalt lifts the heat index like you would not believe.
And Two...As SM stepped on the already laid stuff he said he was leaving marks. The rocks and gooey stuff were shifting under his weight. The peel and stick asphalt is pretty thin stuff.
So we thought Sunday morning would be a good time to attack it. We were delayed by the heavy dew though.
I tossed SM some towels up there to help dry off the underlayment but he insisted on waiting until the roof was good and dry (ie: Hot) until he went back up for another attempt.
We got one more strip laid before we called it quits...This time for a much better reason. Ronnie and Connie are in town! They tagged along with Connie's daughter Jeanie and husband Jim (Al and Tory too) and had rented a house on Lake Norman for the week.
Talk about a pretty sweet gig. Not a bad view at all and the company was tops!
