….or in my case, the ceiling! When we got back Sunday afternoon from our little trip, hubby was laying on the bed watching TV when he noticed some pretty serious water damage on the ceiling. Our water heater is directly above where that damage was. So he went up in the attic and long story short, we had to turn off the water heater, drain the darn thing, and go to HD for a new water heater and drip pan. Hello big bucks!
On Monday afternoon water heater fix it guy came by and let’s just say it was about 150 degrees up in that attic! After removing the old water heater and putting the new one in the attic, he someone cut a water line and water gushed out everywhere! Hubby ran out to where the water main line is to turn it off but water was pouring out of the ceiling in our bedroom and den. I was running around putting towels, bath mats, pots and pans under all the drips until they got it stopped. About 8:00 last night water heater guy left so he could return today to finish up. He notified his insurance company so now I’m sitting here waiting on Serve Pro to call me to come out and “assess the damage”. I see lots of drywall mess in my immediate future but I guess I could look on the bright side cause I’m getting my ceilings fixed and painted (which they desperately need).
So now 25 years worth of “stuff” in the attic will have to come down (don’t know where all THAT will go) so the Serve Pro folks can be sure there is no mold growing up there (yuck)……
….how’s your day going?
I was on the phone with hubby and heard a sound….went in the bedroom and here’s what I saw!!!
This was before the ceiling fell….still waiting on Serve Pro, they are being pulled off another job.
Below is a pic of the ceiling in the den:
Just spoke with the insurance lady and she assured me everything will be taken care of….new ceiling, new carpet, hardwoods (if necessary) and whatever else is damaged, plus clean up. However, she warned it will get worse before it gets better.
