Q. We lost a healthy 100-foot pine tree during the last blizzard. We were lucky that the trunk missed the house, but the branches managed to puncture several holes in the roof.
The roof guy patched the holes but told us that our 10-year-old roof needed replacement due to excessive wind damage. We live in the Blue Hills and we do get our share of wind, but we used top of the line architectural shingles when we replaced the roof in 2003. Are we being duped?
