Are you getting a whole new roof? I like your shingles choice. What are they? Do they look like the clay 1/2 pipe ones that you see all over San Jose, but in shingle material?
Nope, the roof is good except the eaves weren't flashed or sealed well and have been rotting away. They had to remove some shingles to fix the rotting pieces underneath. It's a metal roof, actually. Should last a very long time. It's what was already on my house when I bought it. They only had to replace a few--luckily, they're still manufactured, but the color is slightly different and the edge pieces are slightly larger (you can see that in the 3rd to last photo).
Wow! You're having a stunning amount of work done! Is somebody going to be making sure to seal the rain out of your chimney so you don't relive last winter's waterfall excitement?
This was actually all done 3 weeks ago. I had them look particularly at the chimney, and they think they identified the problem and sealed it up. And as for stunning amount of work--the quantity of photos might be misleading. It was the eaves along the west side of the house and one small section of eaves on the east side.
