A little while ago a big hail storm came through where we live. We lost a boatload of tree limbs and leaves, plants and even parts of my garden...wiped out. A few days later I noticed some water damage upstairs in my daughter's room. Long story short...we had to have a new roof. Being that I'm not quite knowledgeable in the roofing field and have a fear of careening off steep high places, I called a roofing company.
Today was the day for them to be here...and if I had any doubt, all I had to do was wait two seconds for the loud pounding to start up again. I mean crazy loud...super duper uper loud. It was at this time I realized two things....
One...hail storms can wipe out a roof in less than two minutes
and two...you will lose your hearing if you don't leave your house while they put the new roof on.
(Or at least your mind...because the constant banging for hours and hours and hours and hours will drive you C-R-A-Z-Y)
