First round of "will you fix my house"?
May 17, 2016 10:20am CST
We got the first check from the insurance, and a referral to someone they have worked with before, who IS insured, bonded, and has passed background checks. These guys are also roofers AND general contractors, so that means a better chance more can get done with less out of pocket costs. We can't handle too many of those. About to start a gofundme, help us fix our house fund or something, sheesh. The deductible alone is nasty for anyone, let alone people on one income. I know, I should have had that in the bank, and I would have, if he hadn't lost his job. Blar. Life needs to send us good luck!!!! In about an hour they will be here to do a walkthough and start their bidding process with the insurance, I hope they can manage to work something out where they inflate a tad to help us recoop the costs of the deductible or something. Some places will do that.

thanks dear, I keep saying we need some, then something even worse happens. Oh I know each time it could have been worse, but it would be nice to have a string of GOOD things happen, not bad things that could have been more bad.

I hear a lot of folks do the gofundme thing & most of them work out pretty good I have thought about it & well I just not sure how good it would work for me but I do have a few things I could use some extra money for I might try it good luck with what you have going on your task hope it all works out for the best

Years ago we put in a claim for a damaged roof that caused damage inside. The roof, we found out many years later, cost $10K.....My husband told the ins. co. that he would fix the interior damage and they returned our deductable to us. That happened with a car also - we had the damage fixed at a Chevy place and they gave us the ded. back....we were lucky. I must have missed something - what is the damage from?
