    Thanks Cat .

    It was a big job but the wife and I are happy with how it looks

    Not the sort of job I would tackle every day though.

    Looks Great!
    I can attest to how much work is involved.
    We've just had our roof replaced as a consequence of storm damage 12months ago. It took a full two weeks of work, but the result is very pleasing.
