I was recently driving through an expensive neighborhood in Plainfield and I spotted a roof repair. Whoever did the repair didn’t bother to match the shingle color with the original one. This resulted in the pictured repair that clearly looks amateurish.
Let’s assume that the repair was done correctly. The owner is now stuck with an eyesore repair that has an impact on the overall curb appeal of his expansive home.
It is important to remember that there is a big different between low cost and good value. Whatever the owner saved is lost in the way that his home now appears.
