What is it with me and ridge vents? Here’s a post almost exactly three years ago when a storm in KY blew the ridge vent off my house and water leaked into my kitchen.
I was making peanut brittle in the microwave and you know how you have to pay so much attention to what you’re doing and I happened to look up at the kitchen ceiling and saw this:
Our roof isn’t very old. Our house is almost 7 years old but storms don’t care if it’s a new roof or an old roof I guess.
I went out and looked at the roof (like I know what I’m looking for!) and saw this:
See that raised spot in the ridge vent? That’s right where the water spots are. Darned ridge vent. Vince has called a roofer and he can’t be here til Monday. Vince will get in the attic when he gets home and see what else might be drenched up there, set out some buckets and then we’ll have to get a sheetrock guy/painter out here to fix the ceiling. Could be worse . . the kitchen/breakfast room ceiling is one of the smaller ceiling areas in our house so we don’t have to paint anything but that one room.
