Welcome to my blog. My name is Nigel and my new found passion is roofing. Roofing might seem like a strange thing to be excited about. If you had told me a couple of years ago that I would love roofing, I would have laughed in your face. However, all of that changed when I decided to install a new roof on my home. We had been having problems for a while with water leaking into the attic so I decided to take action. The contractor was so helpful I couldn't help but become fascinated by the different roofing solutions. I hope you like the blog.
