Metal roof ain't all it's cracked up to be... My 20 year metal roof at camp started looking faded and had rust spots after 15 years. Sure they will give you a new panel but no money for labor.
I ended up priming and repainting the whole roof on my own dime. Cost me a couple hundred but the finish was better then the original when done.

What I don't like about repair projects is where do you stop. My project was to replace some bad siding and trim, so that I can paint the house. I keep finding more bad cedar siding. The contractor will be replacing the shingles and gutters soon, so the rest will have to wait for some other time.

Now that my cabin project is somewhat finished. My wife has a HUGE list of projects she wants started here at home.

Siding and roof are on that list  :(

Siding is original to house (1976) and looks pretty beat up.
Roof is 20 years old, still look "ok" but I know I should be planning for it in the next couple of years.



Metal roofing and never do it again in your lifetime?
My house is 30 years old and has the old masonite siding. This will be the third shingles replacement, all paid for by insurance claims from hail damage. The siding I can't stand is vinyl siding. It looks so cheap and hail punches holes in it. The hail bounces off the masonite, but needs a good coat of paint or it deteriorates. If I ever decided to replace all of it, it would be with Hardy Board. It is really durable. The masonite siding that went bad was above the attached garage. I am making sure that none of the new siding touches the shingles, so moisture can't be absorbed by the siding.

Well finally got around to finishing my project. Not a big project but it was drawn out long enough. To many graduations, birthdays and get togethers every weekend this summer!  :mad:

I like the crown molding around the closet :specool:

That's a 3"x6" hand hewn log (left over from the log siding build). I also have 30 feet of 3"x10" logs left over, trying to figure out what to build with that. Thinking of wrapping my kitchen island with the logs to enhance the look.... That's for a later day. Right now I need to start enjoying the place for the rest of the year and take a nice long break - staring at what I've done drinking beers.  :beer2:
