When working on a roof it’s impossible not to start looking at all the other roofs around you. Today in Vancouver I was fixing a leak and noticed the neighbor’s garage had an obvious broken tile. There was no doubt this was letting water in…. and I could fix it very easily. But how do I let those home owners know without looking like an “ambulance chaser”? It’s a fine line not to look sleazy. I don’t want to be bothersome or intrusive to a complete stranger so for the most part I keep my mind on the job at hand and not worry about how I could possibly help the neighbors. The only thing I feel comfortable doing is taking a photo and sending it to my client hoping that they will talk to their neighbor about what I saw. What would you do?
