Forum Title: Roofers mistakenly remove roof off a couples home
It has been a long time since I read a story like this but I thought it was both funny and a bit sad. I mean could you imagine being one of the roofers after the owner was aware of the situation? More over, the owners... Ouch! Quote: ST. LOUIS - An apparent roofing mistake has come at the worst possible time for Chris and Laura McInnis. The south St. Louis couple is in the process of selling their home on Rosa Ave. They‚ve already moved out of town and were shocked when neighbors messaged them with news that roofers ripped up their shingles and covered the gaps with a blue tarp. ‚ÄúSomeone had come to our house, by mistake we think and started tearing down our roof for about an hour and quickly realized they had the wrong house and booked it out of there leaving a huge pile of trash next to hour house,‚Äù said Laura McInnis. Neighbors sent the couple photos of the piles of trash roofers left behind. One neighbor was able to grab an image of a blue van neighbors say the workers were using. The image was shared with police and neighbors are trying to identify the roofers. They have a few leads but no resolution. ‚ÄúThings happen. The wrong roof gets worked on but we expect the people responsible, whether it‚s the people who did this or the people who employed them to do it, to make it right,‚Äù said Chris McInnis. The mess is especially difficult for the couple to resolve because they are miles from the home and have just days before the new homeowner will close on the deal. ‚ÄúThat makes us responsible for the damage because we are still technically the owners of the house even though we‚ve moved out of it,‚Äù said Laura McInnis. The couple praised neighbors and family members for their support and hope the roofers will be identified and will make good on their mistake.Source

Wow. Yeah I heard of something like this happening before. It doesn't happen very often these days but it does. Glad to see they will be fixing the problem at no cost.

This actually happened here a few years back. A couple had given the wrong address and were going to be out of town. They mixed up one number and the people down the street had the work done. The irony? They were out of town too so no one knew what had happened until they both got home!
