Well I think I've got it fixed, the gasket around the vent was cracked pretty good so I sealed that up good... but those cracks didn't just suddenly happen so I wonder how long it's had a leak. Where it is positioned in the house I could have seen evidence if it had been leaking much. I think the amount required to ruin that wall came from under the flashing. I could tell it was lifted some. Roofing company still hasn't returned my call so I will go to another.

 

Of course I get into the crawl space an hour ago to get the Christmas decorations and see that the sump quit pumping and there was about 6" of standing water. Got that back going and now It's running wide open... and will be for a while.

Finally (3 days later) I got my first roofer out to check out the roof damage. He said the he can see quite a bit of damage as well as a lot of hail damage from back in the spring. He is going to quote the roof and drywall repair. I've got one more company coming this afternoon to do another quote.

 

I sure hope we can get it done without too much expense... times are tight with Christmas, shed build, recent auto repairs... need two new tires on the Van. Not to mention the added fuel costs for holiday travel!!

If you can get them to sign off that it's hail damage....ding, ding, ding;  INSURANCE company!!!

our roof got damage from the 2008 IKE hurricane that come up the Ole Miss and took out electric in Cincy for 4-5 days. Had 3 separate roofing companies all state severe wind damage to shingles, we got a new roof out of it.

Yeah, key point is if the damage is because of wind and not hail. We've not had a recognized hail storm since we've owned the house.

 

Got the sump pump plumbed in properly finally. The builders put the pump in the hole and ran flexible hose from the center of the crawlspace over to the wall. I replaced it with 1-1/2" PVC with the check valve right over top of the pump instead 20' away.

Thats the way my sump is plumbed, check valve right as it comes out of the hole.

 

Hopefully you can get some recouped.  in 2009 we had to replace roof, complete HVAC and hot water heater :wallbanging:
