I live in dickinson nd . thanks for the offer but lets see the out come of this. My 1x6's roof took a beating as you can see. not all bad but wonder what the top looks like and as they had the felt or ice shield over the nails they just beat the hell out of some .

I apologize if I put you on the spot, but it brings me to the brink of madness when people pull these things on the weak or unsuspecting.It inferiorates me when people take advantage of the elderly.

It is nice to know someone is decent . No you didn't do anything wrong but I have to finish this out and I was brought up to stand up and pay your bills. Like I said the money for the roof is there( insurance mostly) and will be paid if my issues are handled. I don't think much can be done about the felt and nails and it may leak down the road but I want him to know that for the next person, he makes sure it doesn't happen again,

Hammering till they break the boards don't seem right. That nail should have been pulled using a board over the board to keep from breaking it more. now that nail never got really drove in and is going to go up and down with expansion. May be I'm wrong. He hammered it with the felt over it or he would have seen it. Let me know if I'm wrong. I have a few pictures of the top point of the attic nails on nails clusters which the next roofer is going to pull their hair out. A person can't get everthing perfect and I know , I blame the boss because he knew the time they had to do it in with the weather comming and temps dropping as evening comming on.

But my other roof wasn't leaking and only had 4 years on it and so the insurance gave me a new roof. He knew there was no pressing need for the replacement . If I had more problems with the deck they would have never had time to fix it before the 58 mile hr wind came. You can't get parts on sunday. The weather was on every radio and tv that it was comming . I write like my month !!!!! never quits

The best advice I have for any roofer is that- do it like you wouild do it for yourself and if you are proud of the job than you know it is right. I paint pictures and I keep going over it and when I feel that it is just right than I'm satisfied and most of the people that bought from me will like it. I wish I could give a trophy to everyone that has done a good job for me in my life. I appreate everyone. I had a painter this fall want $30 an hour for the hail damage - he said he was just going to paint over the damage and not sand or scarp . He was going to use my paint, ladders , rollers and brushes. I told him I wanted the sanding and scrapping done and he said it $30 hr and I would pay a lot. I told him not to come and done it on my own and got 3 sides done in 15 hrs-plus sanded and scraped where needed. That is $450 and he figured $1200 So I got the job done right and it didn't cost me. By the way he call and asked me if he could still come Two days after I told him to be there and that if he wasn't going to do the job right don't come. I already had the north and half of the east side done. I told him I got half of it done already. don't need him. And that is with my husband walking back and forth and trying to carry off most of the brushes and getting anger at me. Thanks again for the offer roofmaster417

I got the small claims court papers delivered last night to me and I have to find out what to do. I got up in attic to take pictures, no leaks yet . but just melting 1' 1/2 inches of snow on it. On the court papers he said it isn't leaking- one: he hasn't even seen the house. two :the snow has never melted sense nov. It is Jan 27 and just melting but is going back to 10 below again and more snow. Should I get on roof and maybe break shingles trying to get snow off - vents are almost covered or leave and hope thing don't plug up? Even the car port is looking kind of sagging, and it is fiberglass panals. The worse is when a person can't get around like they use to , or do things because of other problems.. I have been doing the work - built the decks and most other maintence on this place all these years but now my husband needs me most of the time and it is the pits. I still glad to have him home and even as it gets harder would do it again.

NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO:ee k:

DON'T EVEN THINK OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You think you have problems getting around ???
I will post a pic of what could happen if you do FALL

I STRONGLY ADVISE ANYONE NOT TO GET ON A ROOF WITH SNOW

You will make matters MUCH worse if you damage your roof.Kiss any chance for ANYTHING awarded to you GOODBYE.

My wife 2 years ago fell 17' off a roof and onto a boulder from a new house that had a layer of frost.Shattered vertabra, Titanium rods,fused from T-11 to L-3.She fell off a new construction and lay behind a new construction site on a cul de sac screaming for help for over an hour.Nobody heard her over the sound of the copmpressor running,finally by the grace of god a women living over 100yrds away stepped out to feed her cat and heard debbie screaming for help.She walked thru the woods and asked if she was o.k.Debbie stated she fell off the roof.The lady told her she was calling the paramedics and NOT to move.Debbie being afraid of not being found crawled through mud and snow about 200' to the compressor.It is EXTREMELY important NOT to get on your ROOF.

And yes she is still up there today.........Hard headed woman..............I love her and respect her though.

I, my self have rods in my back and my ex husband made me work in every thing he could think of and even when the doctor told him no more bending back wards. He still had me up tearing roof off - we tore buildings down for a few years to sell the lumber etc. My back verb. were not connected and simplely wore the disk completely away. and the other one was going above that one. My spine was kinked. Finally got the rods and now have no pain- lived with it for 22 years.

I'm glad your wife is doing better. the worse thing about being fused is not being able to bend.

I was born on a ranch , logged , broke horses, worked for the forest service, built handycap outhouse -prefab- built a house and few sheds. done maintence for 7 years =two high pressure boilers-plumbing-etc for a hospital and many more thiings but as you get older and body and eyes break down , You wonder how you done all that and now I'm scared of a roof leaking- maybe because I can't do any thing about it.
And i'm not that old. Hang on to that wife and tell her everyday how great she is and spend some time.

My husband and me have spent five years 24 /7 and I have to watch him be like a small child and can't even hand you a phone when asked. He was so intelligent that the doctor gave him a 3 hr test and he only missed one question and he said he has never seen any one in all the year miss just one. Next day he couldn't do it. Picks disease is frontal lobe dementia- reasoning and agression- he is so loving and next wants to slap or hit you. Do things now while you can. it starts in the 40-50-60s we notice it when he was 58 years old.
