Freaking Mother Nature

I need a new roof. Mother Nature huffed and puffed and my singles blew off. I now have a number of spots that are missing shingles and a number of spots where the tar paper is showing through. Not good.

There are many reasons why this makes me mad, so I will list them out!

  • It costs money – about 3500 to 4000 to be exact
  • I have to deal with contractors that don’t return phone calls
  • I have to work with insurance companies who drive me up a wall

BUT, I am happy to report that I think that I have found a good contractor to replace the roof who is willing to do it for what I think is a good price. So, hopefully by the end of next week I’ll be waterproof for another 25 years – even though I’m only planning on staying in this house for a couple more years tops.
