A leaky house and no progress
Its been nothing but frustration since our Pre-drywall meeting this past Wednesday. Insulation was completed on Thursday along with the sewer and gas line and then mother nature hit us hard in Pittsburgh. Thursday afternoon some sever weather moved into the area and it pretty much rained off and on until Saturday evening. The down pours were severe with over 4 inches coming down in the township were building in. It was discovered during Thursday afternoons storm that there is a leak somewhere in our roof or exterior wall of our house. The northwest corner of our house which would be the garage , family room, and master bedroom all had puddles of water in them. Of course insulation began to fall off the walls and some of the drywall that was stockpiled in our house got wet, The schedule was for the installation of the siding to begin however looks the poor weather prevented that. Drywall was also supposed to begin but now that the interior walls and insulation have gotten wet in the above mentioned areas along with stacks of drywall no drywalling was done. PM said that he placed a call to the roofers for them to return and find the source of the leak but as of yesterday that does not appear to have happened. We got pounded again with rain yesterday. I went to check on the house and to my dismay more water had gotten into the house from the leak and from broken windows resulting in more insulation coming down and water getting into the mudroom as well. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow when the PM returns.
