I had a roofer lined up to fix the hole(s) in our roof, but after waiting for six weeks or so, I was starting to get worried.
A couple friends asked me if I would be enlisting the services of Quickdraw to fix my roof. They remembered the fiasco of the past summer. Quickdraw will go down in legend as “the roofer without a ladder.”
I hadn’t seen Quickdraw since the storm — until today. He was working on some of Johnny’s properties. When he saw me, he asked if I needed some roof work done.
Next thing, I’m on a mission to get shingles and roofing nails and a replacement roof vent.
What a pain that was. Nothing went smoothly today. For example, I could not find shingles to match our the color of our roof, which is a very light gray. But you can’t see our roof from the street. I guess it doesn’t really matter.
Quickdraw did the work, for which he charged $550. A bit of a gouge, I thought, but that’s what I get for not asking his price in advance.
And it’s worth it to stay dry next time it rains. Plus Quickdraw seems like he could use some cash. He doesn’t own his own home or a car or, apparently, a ladder. Maybe he blows it all on drugs or alcohol. I hope not.
