Update on Leaky Roof

I have a quick little update for you on the leaky roof situation (you can check out the first post and pictures here) . After lots of hurassing phone calls to the property management, my roof has finally been replaced. Not of course before we had a flood of water pouring in from some of the big rain falls we had last week. But, on Friday last week they managed to get the roofing company over to our place and fix the problem.

One down, one to go. We are still waiting for approvals on the interior hopefully with a bunch more hurassing phone calls and a pleasant letter, that too will be approved and on its way to being fixed.

Here are some current pictures of the damage that occurred last week after the heavy rain.

Do you see those little holes in the wall? Yup, that is from fingers. The wall is garbage, it is so soft.

O yes, and this picture below is in the living room just below Jax's room. Yup, you guessed it, it soaked right through the floor and down into the ceiling. Thank goodness we caught it and placed buckets under it or our hardwood floor in the living room would have been ruined also.

Thanks to everyone for all the advice after the first post I did on this situation, it help me a lot. I have a long list of dates, times, pictures, and videos of everything that has happened. I have also contacted some of the people suggested to see if they could help. Hopefully this mess will be cleaned up soon and we will be out of there.

Oh, I’m sorry about the damage. What did you do about it? From the looks of it, you need to change the roofing material. The leak was pretty bad that it was weakening even your walls. If not addressed right away, it might lead to other problems like staining and mold and mildew.

From the way I see it, your roof must have suffered badly because of the rain. Did you replace your roof or did you just give it some repairs? Anyway, I hope your roof is already fixed by now, and don’t forget to have it checked, so that such damages will be prevented.

Good to hear that the roofing company was able to fix the problem right away. That’s why we should never miss a chance to have our roofs checked, so that such inconveniences could be avoided. I hope you’ll never experience roof problem next time.
