It is true. If you say something often enough, it will come to be. My friend jokes with her family about supporting my Pampered Chef business to keep my roof from leaking. You probably can guess where this is going! After a weekend of heavy rain and wicked storms throughout Southern Ontario, my roof is leaking!
I returned last night after another wedding away, to discover this saggy, split drywall in my office ceiling. Not exactly what I was hoping to discover. Especially after I realized last night my basement had also sprung several new leaks. At least, I could pinpoint their cause. It rained so much this weekend, my eves can't get the water away fast enough. Not to mention, my rain barrel is overflowing, and the water is probably running down along the foundation.
You will recall I fixed my leaky basement once already by regrading the backyard. Time for some more landscape and evestrough work!
But, my roof! It would be one thing if it was a dripping leak, because at least the pressure would be released. Instead, its soaked into the ceiling drywall. Okay, an actual dripping ceiling would not be cool either. Regardless though, where is this coming from?! My shingles are starting to age, but they didn't appear to be in that bad of shape. I'll have to climb up and take a look. In the meantime, I'm praying the rain stops!
Since writing this, I discovered my futon is soaked and there is a puddle beneathe it on the floor. Turns out this must have been a full-on leak afterall. It's definately not any better... shoot.
