Lightening Quick Roof Repair at a Great Cost

My wife suggested I call for Queens NY roof repair after I came home after a lengthy work related trip to another part of the country. I first heard from her a few days before when she called in a dither. Apparently a serious wind storm moved through the city and caused all sorts of damage. Trees were down, power lines went down, and there was lots of damage to roofs and windows throughout the city. I told her to wait until I got home so I could assess the damage. I should have had her call because it was quite bad.

While our windows escaped serious damage, our roof did not.

Our AC System in Our House Would Be Cold and then Blow Warm Air

Our air conditioner would stop blowing cold air, but the fan kept running. It was running for hours, and it was just blowing warm air. It was not hot air like the furnace was on or anything, it was just not cold air of the AC. I shut it off for a few hours and then turned it back on. It ran cold for a few hours and then blew warm air again. It did this for days, so i called a place that does HVAC repair in NYC to have them come out and take a look at our air conditioning system. The only way we cold get it to cool the house was to run it until it blew warm air, and then we had to shut it off for a few hours.

It was really humid the week this was happening, and that made it all that much more worse.

Bees Were Taking over Our Front Porch

I know that bees are having a problem with the Colony Collapse Disorder, and there are concerns for wild honeybees too. However, our front porch had a nest of bees taking up residence underneath the siding under a window on the porch. I was afraid they would manage to get inside our home, and I was afraid of us getting stung as we sat outside on the porch. When they started flying around us, we called an exterminator in NYC to come and take care of the problem.

The bees were not aggressive, but you could tell they did not like you being anywhere near that window. I heard that some bee hives have guard bees that watch the opening to the nest. I was worried our curious dogs would get attacked if they smelled the bees and went to investigate.

I Missed Work Because of My Back Pain

Pain feels bad no matter where it is located, but having it in a place that is hard to reach can make it seem a whole lot worse. I work in construction, so I am used to being tired and sore after a long day, but I am not used to my back hurting. When I woke up the morning after a particularly hard day at work in a lot of pain, I just thought it was because of my work. It was not until I went to see a chiropractor in Corte Madera after missing three days of work that I realized that it was something far more serious than just a hard day of work.

Thankfully, though it was a serious issue because my back was out of alignment, it was also a very easy fix. The chiropractor did a physical examination on me first, and I was able to bend about halfway down to the floor.
