Crazy storm scares family
Storms can be both beneficial and a pain in the neck but mostly a pain in the neck. I found that out recently when a huge storm hit my home, it started out as a normal care free day like you see in those annoying TV sitcoms. The sky was some what cloudy but nothing to freak out over, I went about my day like I normally would.When I got home the sky had darken considerably to the point the sun was completely blocked out.
Just as I was inside the rain just poured down and the winds started picking up like god knows what, I mean HUGE 90 mph gusts the trees were bending like those stupid looking air dancers. My kids are looking at me like “You’re the weather man, DO something..like right now!” I wish could’ve done something because they where sure as hell they where going to die, but when mother nature has to go she has to go. I tried to calm them down a little bit and just as I told them “nothing is going to happen” this tree that had been in the front yard came crashing through the roof into the guest room, so much for keeping them calm.
Everyone started screaming (not me of course) and they hid in closet as I went to the back of the house where the guest room was.The tree had been pushed over by the wind made easy by the soaked ground. I’m still surprised that it didn’t bring the whole wall down, but it did a number on the roof one branch went clean through touching the floor. Rain was coming through the hole and the wind was ripping the loose shingles off like a band-aid pulling hairs off your leg.
Once the storm had passed and the kids came out the closet (no pun intended) one thing was going through my mind “how much is this going to cost?” well the first thing I did was pull my phone and started checking online for a roof repair service in my local area. I had found one that looked legit and gave them a call, they where able start the repairs that day and they accepted my insurance another good thing because paying this out of pocket would’ve cost me a fortune. The tree got moved out of the way and the started removing all the useless scrap and replaced the damaged rafters and the whole nine yards.
I was surprised by the speed they were able to repair the roof, I mean they are getting paid to do it but these guys got it done like they had a gun to their heads or something. I hate bad weather and trees falling on my house but i know if it ever happens again I know that these guys are the ones I’m going to call, They’re fast, on time, friendly and trust worthy. That gets them a five star rating from start to finish in my book.
