My roof is repaired. The roofing repair guy came out yesterday, looked at the damage inside, climbed up onto the roof, and returned with photographs (which I appreciated). He could fix it right there with very little trouble.
Financial damage? $150.
I’m definitely pleased, and the company was a breeze to work with. I know that you should get multiple estimates, but I decided that $150 was worth the risk. After all, I’m not looking at a full replacement at this point. And it’s nice to have that taken care of.
So the next step is going to be repairing the damage inside. It’s not too complex a process, but I’m not very experienced in home repairs. And it’s in my teensy master bathroom, so if I screw it up and it doesn’t look perfect, it’s not the end of the world. This weekend, I’m going to hit up Home Depot for the repair supplies (thank you This Old House for the walkthrough on how to repair) and also pick up some paint samples to figure out what color I want to paint the walls once the repair work is done.
I can’t believe I haven’t painted anything in my house yet. I’m fairly indecisive and also bad with color, so trying to choose paint colors is a challenge for me. And my current paint colors aren’t bad, so I haven’t gotten around to it yet. But this water damage is going to force me to do something. Or just live with patched, unpainted walls.
Let’s be honest, the latter is fairly likely to happen!
