I gave a buddy of mine some help repairing his roof. It had been leaking for some time, but he lacked both the funds and knowledge to do the job. Recently he’d been given some roofing materials and I had a free afternoon to show him what to do. My years of doing much with little come in handy now and then.
Whoever installed the roof cut corners that should not be cut. They skipped a couple rows of shingles near the ridge pole. A poorly designed and installed roof vent sorta kinda almost covered it. Over time things shifted a bit and roof vent efficiently channeled water directly into the room below.
With only a little more time and a few dollars more spent on materials, the contractor could have done a good job. Instead, he left behind something destined to fail early. Whatever happened to taking pride in one’s job?
