Default The roof is fine - I did it myself!

I was told that the garage roof in yesterday's home was recently covered with metal. Unfortunately the home owner ran out of metal as only half of it was done. It was raining during the Inspection and POURING through the roof.

Sarchasm-the gap between the person being sarcastic and the person who doesn't get it.

Wow, I thought mine was bad. This one is worse.

At least mine was water tight.

Yeah, I’d say that’s a little misleading. I guess the one section, could be considered a roof garden. "No worry, the garage roof is eco-friendly! The growing vegetation is great for the environment".
