Nice job, re-using the old brick was probably the best thing as far as matching up. Jobs like that can be unpredictable and time consuming which is why estimates might seem a bit high from masons.

Who is looking at your roof...
The black hellicopters...
If you brush the roof too hard you will be back up there...
To replace shingles...
Pay a kid short money to do the stupid/muscle work...
Once he humps the staging use a crane at the top...
Better than the hospital bill...
