Roofing Situation


I posted a few days ago that it seemed as if we were getting a new roof for free. Yeah, well, it kinda doesn't seem as if that's going to happen anymore. We talked to the inspector who missed the fact that we ILLEGALLY have 3 layers of shingles on our roof, and he said it wasn't his job to catch the error. Which basically means he got himself out of the situation AND wrote it on our inspection booklet to cover his hiney.

He did say that he would put a new roof on for us IF we found him 4-5 other men to help him put the roof on. This still poses a problem because we don't know 4-5 men who would be willing to crawl around up on our roof in July for little pay. Therefore, we're still praying that we'll find someone who is willing to do the entire roof for the $2400 the insurance company gave us to get the back of the roof fixed; not the $4800 they're telling us it will cost to get the whole thing done!
