Hired a roofer-- finally. it's like I couldn't give my money away.

August 15th, 2008 at 07:21 am

I finally hired a roofer yesterday. I like them a lot (so far)!. For a while, I felt like I couldn't even give my money away. I've had 4 estimates. Of course, I called more roofers than that and many didn't even show up to do an estimate. I thought the housing downturn meant more contractors looking for work. I guess not!

Three weeks ago I had actually hired a roofer, the one recommended by my neighbor, and he never came by to pick up the deposit. Geesh. Is there something wrong with my cold hard cash?

I have two other projects that are on hold waiting for the roof, so my entire summer project list has been on hold. I keep promising the neighbors that yes, I do have a plan for making the front of the house presentable, nay, even look fabulous, but they are starting to not believe me!

I can't put my landscape plan into place until the roofers are done, because i can't have old shingles falling all over my flowerbeds.

Maybe this will get the show on the road.

    Good luck with your roofing project.

    We had the same phenom when we were trying to find painters for our house - for the longest no one would come to even give an estimate. Hello??? Anybody out there still painting houses?? Gee painters - if you're that busy you need to hire additional people - an estimator perhaps? ...and more painters to keep up with the demand? Sounds like a problem I'd like to have!
