Must be that new fangled, new style roofing material.
My cousin is trying to get ready to sell his home, he lives along the coast of Maine. He is doing everything I told him to, and everything the local Realtor® told him to. Painting, cleaning up, de-cluttering, he may even replace the original blue toilet in the downstairs bathroom! Many of the "big" things have already been done. He installed a new furnace a few years back, put vinyl siding and new windows in a few years ago, replaced the deck. He is on the right track, a seller after my own heart!
The roof is original, I think about 30 years old. He made some calls and went with a large company who he thought was pretty good. They came on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, and like the clowns in a Shriners circus car, 10 people piled out of 2 vehicles, they were all over his roof like flies on honey! Very impressive.
The old shingles came off, they worked feverishly through the day. 5 of the guys left after all the original shingles were off, leaving 5 to complete the work. This is a small cape with a shed roof in the back, no dormers in the front. My dear cousin had to leave in the afternoon, and returned home at 5:00 pm to the roofers just finishing up. Mission accomplished! It was too dark to see the results, so the following morning he went outside to see his lovely new "driftwood" colored shingled roof! Ah yes, a sight to behold.... this is what he saw (no photo has yet been supplied to me, this is my rendition of his description).
His neighbor Ollie wandered over as my cousin was staring up at the roof in disbelief. He commented how bad it looked, and had to rub it in that the bi-colored roof stuck out like a sore thumb. " Too bad they didn't do that in the back of the house instead of the front, it really looks like crap!" Neighbors, you gotta love 'em.
A call was made to the owner of the roofing company, who came right over to inspect the work and determine if my cousin was for real, or off his nut. (If a call had been made to me by the owner of the company, I would have told him although he may not pack a full sea bag, he can determine color differences). And what did the owner tell my poor befuddled cousin?
Let's wait a few weeks and see what color the roof is then.
I asked him if was sure he had ordered "driftwood" colored shingles. Perhaps he had ordered the new "chameleon" colored shingles, he should check the work order. Unless of course this is some new fangled new style roofing material!
Good thing he only paid for half the work.
