Yeh, wifey won't let me top trees or get on the roof. says she's too young to be a widow.
Well, about that roof, seems like you or someone could do a repair/patch that wouldn't allow any more damage until you're ready to have the new roof put on.
Just reread the 1st post, that was last year January, guess you're about ready for the new roof.
When I built this house, I had #30 felt on for three years before I put on the roofing.
