Dammit. My roof leaks.
I called the roof repair guy a while ago, but apparently they’re busy and I haven’t heard back.
It’s okay for now, since the ice has frozen again. It started leaking yesterday when the temperature went up a bit. There’s an awful lot of ice up there.
The ice is my fault, really. I didn’t clean out the eaves troughs in the fall. Even so, the roof is but two months old. It probably shouldn’t leak.
Hurray! Just as I’m writing, a guy showed up and promised to remove the snow and “whatever ice they could”. I took a look, and there’s no way I could move the ice. I’m hoping they have some melter gadget thing. We’ll see what happens.
Update: I hurrayed too soon. They appear to have no melter gadgets. They’re bashing on my roof with shovels. This does not bode well.
I suppose, being roofing guys, they can replace whatever they break. This is my only consolation.
Update 2: They’re gone. They cleared off a whole bunch of the ice and allowed the water to drain off. It it was me, I’d probably be a bit more subtle about it. They left without saying anything. Off to the next emergency, I guess. Roofing superheroes that they are.
I’m probably going to use the hot water trick to get the eaves draining again, but right now, I think I should probably get into work…
