The prelude…May 29th a huge storm blew through with mega downpour. The contractor and his crew had just stripped the shingles off the back section of the house but luckily got it covered with a tarp just in case….or did they??? Da da daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
Jumping forward into the early hours of May 30th, 1:30 a.m. to be exact, the three of us lay snuggled in our bed with the soft hum of the fan in the window and the cool breeze filling the room. That peace came to an abrupt end with a
loud, thunderous, deafening bang. Okay so maybe I am exaggerating a tad, I thought the fan had fallen out of the window and knocked some things over. Sidenote: Jbear never even stirred – that kid can sleep through anything. Anyways, Jason jumped to his feet while I sat there trying to figure out what was going on – both of us stared at the window which still held the fan. Slowly I looked up to see part of the ceiling was missing (approx. 2 foot by 2 foot section)….still trying to grasp reality I muttered “What the (four letter word that rhymes with duck)”.
Long story short….turns out the tarp didn’t fully cover the barren roof and the “torrential” rain seeped in. Current damage that we could identify just by glancing is as follows:
- Second floor: master bedroom ceiling and flooring is soaked (probably will need to be replaced)
- Insulation in the attic – soaked and will need to be replaced
- First floor: back room, portion of the ceiling will need to be replaced since it now lays in a soaking heap on the floor.
