New roof

I met with a home inspector today to examine the Ottawa condo. Everything seems fine with the property except for the shingles. They are at the end of their life and need to be replaced. I saw that they were curling a bit the last time I was at the property, so this was not a surprise.

Otherwise, everything looks good and I'm moving forward to clear the other conditions.

There was a big industrial fire the other day in Edmonton - bales and bales of paper at a shingle making factory ignited. Who knew shingles could be made from paper?? I suggest that you choose another type:)

I didn't know that they could be made from paper either. I guess those are the "15 day" shingles which are probably cheaper than the "15 year" type. I would like to put metal roofing on for fire protection but am not sure if the co-tenancy agreement will permit it.

I'll talk with the committee when I get there and if I am only allowed to use asphalt then it will be 15 year shingles.
