Ever notice how, when you get towards the end of August into September, all of the sudden the roofers seem everywhere?
This isn't the first year I've noticed it but for some reason it just seemed more obvious to me the last few days. It became especially evident after seeing probably five or six roofs being repaired or replaced with the few blocks around my house. I go out to load up my stuff this morning and the first sound I noticed was that of the roofers a block or so away pounding away on the roof.
House painting's the same way. Seems you see a lot of painters running around trying to get their work done before the rain comes.
I guess we did the same thing when we had our roof replaced, but we were a little earlier on in August. Still, why do so many of us wait until the last minute to do this stuff?
