So yeah. New roof needed on the abode. Made a deal for cash & everything starts according to plan (no, I didn't pay up front - thank God as you'll soon see). The job gets about 1/3 of the way completed & our guy starts having equipment problems. He breaks off for the day & the crew hasn't returned - this was 3 days ago now. Yesterday was a sunny day. The captain shows up alone & works for about an hour, then speaks to a guy down the street who's roof he just did last week. Leaves & doesn't return. We have no roof on 3 sides of the house, however all the black underlay is there so we're good right?
Not right. This am around 6 I'm woken up by the pat pat pat of dripping water. We have water marks on the main floor ceiling and the floor & stairs are quite wet. I put pots down to catch the 2 drip spots & towel things up. Photos taken of the marks on the ceiling where the water has soaked through. Minor inspection reveals no further wet places that I can find for now.
A few hours later, Tom gets up and heads down to his cave in the basement - suddenly there is more water to deal with that I didn't find earlier (silly me for thinking I had it all on the main floor). The basement floor is very wet, right underneath the same spot that was leaking upstairs. Enough water came through that it dripped through the roof, upper floor and main floor, then trickled onto the basement floor. An extension cord is lying in water. So I get that toweled up. By now the rain has stopped & so has the dripping. My hope is that there is no water trapped - that it all made its way through one drip point or another and is now soaked up. Fans are blowing all over in hopes of drying it all out & avoiding mold.
Best part? I've called the contractor every hour on the hour since 8am - it's now 1230 and I've had no call or text back. I don't care if he finishes the roof, but someone needs to get their ass up there & make sure that leaky point is covered over with something - I don't give a fuck what. I have no idea how to determine where the water is getting in - looking out the upper floor windows, the area is completely littered with tools & packages of materials, with loose nails and shit everywhere. Fuck me.
