We have been quite fortunate and have yet to replace a roof. We did lose a couple of shingles when Hurricane Ike blew through. It was a pretty easy fix. The Dedicated Husband replaced them himself and helped out several of our neighbors who also lost some shingles. It was very minimal damage and was so easy to repair. We were very blessed to have such little damage. Others in and around our neighborhood were not so fortunate. All around town you would see the blue tarps indicating major roof damage.
