AMISH ROOFERS IN MY TOWN !!!

The first three pictures were taken when I was driving out of town.  I saw these two Amish men working on putting a new roof on this house.  It is the first time I have seen Amish in the town I live in - except when I brought Elmer, Jean, David, etc. to my apartment or an auction.  The last three pictures were taken when I was returning from my picture taking day.  Hope to see them in town more often.  I wonder where they live?  Maybe in this house?

Good Morning Marilyn, Friends of ours in Potter had Mennonite roofers put on their metal roof. They received the best price from them and are very happy with their new roof. Cathy in Webster

Good Morning Cathy,
Neighbors of some friends of mine had Mennonite roofers do theirs, too. They were very happy and liked the price. What Elmer didn't care for this one is the Amish put the new roof on over the old one. Elmer said if he was doing it, he would have taken off the old roof and put on the new one. I don't know much about roofing.

There are quite a few Amish roofers and carpenters in my area. They are hard workers.

In pictures 4 and five, it looks as if the old roof is off. I don't want to dispute anyone's view.

It is snowing again in West Virginia. I'm sure you will get some also. Have a wonderful week.

Hi Wilma,
They just attached boards to the old roof and attached the new roof to the boards.

We will be getting your snow pretty soon. Hope you have a wonderful week, too.

I remember that the amish in general are very good with respect to their craftsmanship. I mean, I realize that they are different and don't fit into all aspects of society without sticking out, but when it comes to their ability to actually do stuff and get work done, then they definitely stand out. I bet this roof was done better, quicker, and maybe even cheaper than most!

Solid company. I had 3 quotes done and these guys offered the best warranty. The installers showed a day later than discussed however everything was still finished earlier than expected.
