My Roof Has A Hole In It And I Might Drown!

Our roof sign is done and ready to go. The 8 foot hot dog looks awesome and I can't wait to see it sitting atop Yank's Franks.

Unfortunately, after the installation of the exhaust hood, we sprung a leak. The installers gave us the bad news that the roof has 5 layers of shingles on it.

Obviously, totally contrary to the building code. (why didn't the building inspector catch this??? Argh!) We had a choice, patch it and take our chances, or get a new roof. It's an unfortunate situation, but an easy choice. A new roof it is.

I'll have more photos of the inside on Thursday. It looks really good.


  1. What did you choose? In my opinion, a roof replacement is much better than fixing the hole. The roof repair may give you a temporary relief, but a roof replacement can give you long-lasting peace of mind. :-) [Lino Kosters]

  2. You made a good choice! Repairing it could’ve saved you some money but a roof replacement can guarantee quality. By the way, what kind of roof did you choose?

  3. When repairs are not enough, replacing the roof is the best solution. You shouldn’t be disappointed because a new roof is always a good investment. Depending on what your material is, it can be energy efficient, can add more curb appeal, and you don’t even have to pay for more expensive repairs anymore.
