Last weekend I had to watch the kids because my partner was on a ski trip with her work friends. I love to stay home and take it easy with the family, so for me it was no problem at all. The kids and I spent Friday evening around the TV, watching a horror movie and eating pizza. I had planned to take the whole troop to the park the next afternoon for some outside activity in the hot summer heat but things did not go to plan.
Before my alarm could even wake me up, my youngest son, Ted, came into my bedroom and told me that his ceiling was leaking water on his face and he wanted to know if he could sleep with me. I let him get into bed and went into his room to check and see what was up, thinking that he probably just had a nightmare and not knowing that I was about to have my own nightmare. The ceiling in Ted’s room had a huge grey spot above the bed, where water was leaking down and soaking the mattress and carpet.
Ok, a roofing problem, I will fix it. I got out my tools and set the ladder up and after some trouble managed to get onto the roof. It only took me a few more minutes of creeping around up there to realize that the roof was a problem that I was not going to be able to fix on my own. I almost fell off the ladder on my way back to earth but I did get back down safe and I went to tell the kids that we were going to have to take a rain check for the park.
First, I opened the phone book and turned to Roofers. There were a lot of options for different roofing companies in the phone book and I was not sure of how I was going to choose one. I was about to call the first random number on the list, when I remembered that my neighbor had experiences some roofing issues the month before. I walked next door and explained the situation to him and he gave me the number of a roofing contractor who had done a lot of houses in the area.
A few hours later the guys were on top of my roof working on the leak while the kids and I played in the backyard. It turned out that the roof had been damaged for some time before that and there was actually a lot of damage to be repaired. In fact, the roofers had to come back out the next day to continue the work on the roof. I guess I was lucky because if they had not discovered the problem in time, I could have been out a whole lot more money than I was but I still wished it had not of happened on my weekend with the kids. I guess sometimes not everything goes to plan.
