New Roof

From Re roofing Pro...
Our new roof has been completed. We could not be happier with the job that our roofing company did. The finished product is proof of their skill. They took great pride in their work and we can recommend Ametco, Inc. in Lake Worth, Florida without hesitation if you want a very high quality metal roof installation. Their phone number is in one of the photos in the album which you can view by clicking the link under the photo.

We now start on our solar energy projects. The first is to reinstall our solar hot water heater which was removed for the re roofing. After that we plan on installing a 4,400 watt photovoltaic system on our south and west roofs. None of this will be visible from the street but it will give us a fair measure of independence from the grid without relying on conventional generators in the event of a power outage. In addition, unlike a conventional generator that only runs in an outage, the photovoltaic system will be generating electricity every day to offset its cost.
