It is always unfortunate when you have to get something fixed on your house that you were not expecting to have to spend money on. But I can tell you one thing, I am definitely glad that I have a bit of an emergency savings fund available for just such things. I have never had to have my roof repaired before, but I need to have a contractor that does roof repair in Brooklyn NY to come over and look at my roof, because it really does need to be repaired.
I am still mourning the fact that I am going to have to spend this money. But there isn’t anyway around it. The roof needs to be fixed. A storm recently blew over a tree in my yard that was mostly dead, and it landed partially on the roof. If it was much closer to the house, it would have landed a much more direct of a blow the house, and by the same token, it would have likely caused a lot more damage. So I guess in some ways, I got off easy.
But to tell the truth, it doesn’t really feel like I got off easy. I still have to pay for the repairs, and this is the worst time of the year for me to have to pay off things that I was not expecting to have to pay for. If it had been at another time of the year, then it would not have been such a big deal. But I guess I am just not that lucky. I think that the actual damage is located in a fairly small area of the roof, so hopefully it will not take a lot of time or money in order to fix it back to a new condition.
