We were really lucky and have only minor damage. A couple of
1. We've got several ceiling leaks that all appear to be along a line
in the center of the house. We do have ridge vents on the roof (and
the roof has lost some shingles from hurricane Charley). I'm
wondering if the storm winds managed to blow water through the ridge
vents? And is this something that needs fixing or can we wait and see
if the water stains just dry up. I haven't been up in the attic to
check on the state of the insullation either.
2. After the hurrican, we're getting an unpleasant sewage smell in
our master bathroom/bedroom. What could be causing this?
We've already got a claim from hurricane "Charlie". I'm not sure if
either of these problems are something we should bring to our
insurance company or not. Appreciate comments and suggestions. My
husband is able to make repairs but I'm always willing to give things
a try if it doesn't sound too complicated.
