and now I need a new chimney
It never ends. The project manager told me this morning that they aren't tearing off the shingles? flashing? around my chimney because the chimney is rotted and needs to be replaced. Says their mason will be out today and the number he gave me for comparison is 3,500 - 4k. Yesterday we found out that we need 1K worth of replacement decking. Being that this is an old house and the PO was CAULKING leaks, I guess I'm not shocked. The decking we could see from underneath looked good, but that was probably less then half the roof.
So, I know this is a *big deal* repair, right? I mean, I can't let this one go can I? I'm about to go check Angie's list for mason's, but how am I going to get someone out right away? I haven't the slightest idea how I'm going to pay for it. They can't complete the roof until this is done. I mean, they can do everything else, but...
Today should have been the last day, Friday my parents are coming to visit for a week. I feel like crawling into a hole.
