No..real world intervenes. The HOA denied my roof shingles because they "appear to be asphalt and are too flammable. Try to find something else."
Meanwhile the existing roof wood shingles are from 1867 and would spontaneously ignite at 112F.
The things are A fire rated (highest rating) and are also rated to 130 mph winds. At 130 mph I would not have a single wood shingle left.
The HOA are corksoakers. Did I mention that?
Meanwhile I caved to SG and have hired an Israeli contractor to fix all the leaks and remodel 5 bathrooms plus the master bath and the kitchen and tear down the drywall from the leaks and refloor the Houston Astrodome. I'm not going to mention the quote but it would take me 100 years to do this myself. I'm not kidding. All the contractors are Israeli expats and the workers are all Mexican and Guatemalan expats
Also, before the Israelis destroyed the kitchen, SG made a great dinner and invited PG over and there was much wine and adult beverages and then I had reached my limit so I went upstairs to go to sleep and before you know it they come upstairs and wake me up and everyone is in their birthday suits and now she keeps trying to invite herself over for dinner...the poor dear.
A lot of people here in San Antonio are replacing their shingles after the recent snow. About eight inches total. Those with solar panels have to have a contractor remove the panels before getting the roof done. Then they have to put them back on. I would be looking at metal shingles. But nobody around here seems to be doing it.
It is also very hard for metal roofs to burn but I don't think that they are actually shingles.
Heck, maybe even get different colored shingles to make a design on the roof.
Or even make words or a phrase on the roof, but I won't post my suggestions here.
These are the types of roofing panels that I was thinking for a metal roof. If you live where you can get a lot of snow, the snow can/will slide right off. If so, have something to divert it away from walkways.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
