Tile damage, on the tile part of the roof. Add on another couple thou. to redo the tilework. Ah, the joys of home ownership. However, I can't say I'm surprised. I think that the roof was right at the cusp of being even nastier than I thought. Good thing the home equity loan went through. It always costs more than you think...

I'm having them save the spanish tile they're replacing, since with all the adobe rehabs I am or have been involved with, I am sure there will be a use for them somewhere.
