Roof/Exterior painting and fencing

I was wondering if anyone here had a positive recommendation for someone to paint my roof. It is leaking in 3 spots and its time for it to be powerwashed and painted. I could do it myself but I really don't have time and want someone who I can trust. Any thoughts?

Also, I was thinking about replacing the really ugly chain link fence around my house. Any one have any recommendations?

I will probably do these after storm season, although the roof I may do before.

Thanks for any thoughts you may have!

For the ugly chain link fence I recommend planting a lot of bougainvillea. They are pretty and have thorns to help keep people off of it. We looked into concrete and metal and it was just way way more money then we wanted to just spend on a fence. So we just disguise it. Everyone seems to like the multi colored bougainvilleas on the east end.

Let me know if you find a good roofer. We need to get ours repainted but everyone wants to rape us on the price so as it stands right now we're just going to do it ourselves.

Which islands? At the first house that we rented on St Thomas, our land lord used All Star Services for painting they did a nice job. He also does roofs and he did the cisterns as well. They have an add in Island Trader all the time.

Sorry, should have said STX..thanks Trade.

Thanks Betty, I have some bougainvillea on one side of my yard where there is a retaining wall. They have some thorns! Make's yard work a bit painful but they are beautiful. A botanist came by once to take a sample of one because apparantly it was a rare color (I think it was the violet looking one). The other side of the yard is a bit more conducive to fencing..its just the fence that is there was never cut/finished so it's really unattractive right now.

Hi Stify,

My husband does all kinds of repairs. He just finished repairing a roof on one of his rentals and he's putting up a field fence at the moment. He manages 3 properties and like I said does all kinds of repairs, but roofing, fencing (he grew up on a farm), and landscaping is what he has been doing more of recently. He can provide references as needed.

You can contact him (Jimmy) at 773-1257

Hope this helps.
