Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

Ah, the joys of home-ownership. My roof has gotten re-shingled a few weeks ago…but somehow, it sprung a leak last Thursday night into Friday morning. Ceiling tiles came down and much frustration ensued. Well, three days later – that one leak has turned into three!

Has anyone else had problems with leaking roofs AFTER having their shingles re-done? I’m thinking that something isn’t sloped right. But I have no clue what I’m talking about. I was up last night twice to check on the leaks that are now converging in a 40 gallon container. Thank goodness I decided I liked big plastic containers instead of boxes to pack in. Otherwise…I would have had a flood in my house by the time I found the new leaks.

  1. Oh my I am so sorry to hear that you are having such bad luck! Keep your head up it has to get better at some point right, soon! I am wondering if when you had your roof re-shingled if they puncutured something in the plumbing? How long has it been since you got the new roof before the leaking started??

  3. I would definitely call the people who put your new shingles on. I bet they'd fix whatever they didn't do correctly.


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
