roof, front - Carolyn says hi - IMG_3091 (20110615)

Note the condition of the shingles. Progressive insurance (Homesite insurance) dropped our insurance giving us a list of reasons. We fixed the items on that list. They then dropped us a 2nd time for new reasons not included in the first list, including "curling shingles" on my roof. The shingles certainly aren't perfect, but do these look like something that's going to fly off my roof and cost an insurance company a lot of money? Of course, we survived Hurricane Irene AND the post-Irene flood storms JUST FINE ... With zero water in our house. Progressive did not even cite our roof the first time they dropped us. Quite simply, Progressive Insurance/Homesite insurance are ASSHOLES. The roof sure as hell does not need to be re-done if it is functioning just fine. Plus, I just patched it with roof cement to strengthen it up even more! Be smart. Stay away from Progressive. Their low prices aren't worth it. The State Corporation Commission has been notified, but since Virginia is a Republican state, our regulatory agencies barely have any teeth.

 

The tree touching the roof on the right is an example of tree maintenance I did myself with the pole saw.

 

You can see some of the $3 Home Depot solar lights that we put on the pathway (once you get out of the range of the street light).

 

Leaves still everywhere from our tree removal.

 

Also since then, additional gutter guards have been deployed, and they are uniformly and 100% covering the front gutters at least. Had to cut some into custom-sized pieces to get full coverage.

Homesite insurance, Pontiac Bonneville 1993 car, Pontiac Grand Am 1994 vehicle, Progressive insurance, flamingos, gutter, gutter guards, gutters, house maintenance, jack stand, shingles, solar lights.

Homesite insurance sucks. Homesite sucks. Progressive insurance sucks. Progressive sucks.
