This company said we will need the following... a new roof, new front siding, new garage door, new screens on the windows, new down spouts, and all new shutters. They are writing us a formal estimate, but are guessing it is going to be around $10,000 - $12,000! HOLY COW! Thank you Lord for insurance!
This company pretty much said everything needs replaced that the other one did, however, when they replace stuff there will be a lifetime warranty on most things. They also said that they would take care off the old satellite off our roof from the previous owner and patch things up where it was. The estimate will probably be around the same as the first.
What will happen from here is we will send both estimates to our insurance company and they will send out their own person to do an estimate on the damage to see if it compares. If the estimates don't match then we may be paying more out of pocket to get things fixed.
The good thing is that until we do get things fixed the house should be okay... so in other words we aren't going to have leaks and such in the meantime.
We are thankful to have insurance, but even with it this will be a big hit to us since we weren't expecting it and we just spent all this money on Remington's surgery. What do they say... bad things come in 3's??? Wonder what our third will be?
