This was an interesting project that we worked on in Lyme. The Gambrel roof was in tough shape. The top section was asphalt, and all lower sections were hand-split shakes. We removed all of the old roof and siding and replaced it all. The roof was very cut up with dormers and chimneys. The main section of the original house was built in 1740. The roof has since developed some major dips that presented a challenge when trying to line up the courses. The old section looks great with a new wood roof throughout.
