Yesterday, a contractor came out and took a look at our roof. The main problem (water leaking into the bedroom through our ceiling fan) was caused by the material around our chimney being blown off from Hurricane Irene. The contractor also took a look at the sealant on the edges of the roof of our laundry room addition at the back of the house. Then he gave us a quote to fix both.
Thankfully, the quote was less than our $1,000 deductible on our homeowner’s insurance. Now we’re just waiting for a callback from the roofer to schedule the actual repair- which should take maybe a day and a half to do.
