Well I certainly wasn’t expecting to have to pay money to have my roof fixed this month, but I guess that is why I have a rainy day fund. I like to call it that, but it is basically just some savings put aside for emergency expenses that are not otherwise in the budget. I found out years ago that life is too unpredictable to expect to be able to just spend what is in the budget every month. So I just called a contractor for roof repair in Brooklyn NY to see how much it is going to cost for these roof repairs.
Of course, I don’t know how much it is going to cost yet, but I got the contractor to agree to come over and take a look at my roof and give me a free quote on the repairs. I definitely wouldn’t hire anyone who did not give free quotes, because it just doesn’t seem to be a good business tactic to make people pay for quote. Anyway, I need to get my roof fixed as soon as possible, and preferably before it rains again.
There is currently a hole in my roof that was caused by a large limb breaking off of a tree in my yard. I didn’t really think that something like this would happen to my house. Well, I had considered it before, but it always seemed very unlikely. I had imagined that if it did happen, it would be the result of a freak storm, but it seems that the branch just broke off due to the fact that it was hollow and perhaps partially rotten near the base of the branch. Definitely a random event, but one that I am going to have to pay for. Hopefully it won’t cost me too much.
