A former house I lived in had a flat roof (Eichle built house).It hadn’t rained in a month, so I figured this would be a good time to put on a new roof. I went on the roof and removed all the gravel and roofing material and quit for the day. That night it rained something fierce. The roof was made up of 2×6 T&G boards and the water and tar residue went through like a strainer. It left an inch of water on the floor. Fortunately I had a roll of plastic sheeting that we hastily covered the furniture with. Net result: The insurance company paid for our loss and put us up in a motel for 2 weeks + food and drink. Murphy’s law at it’s finest. If anything can go wrong; it will.
