worth the trip
There was a leak in the ceiling of my closet. We reported it and people came to look at it and fix it. They initially thought they would just sand off the damage and repaint to cover it up. I was home when they came and I explained that wouldn't work. It was obviously worse than they thought. They came back a WEEK later, and inspected it at which time they agreed that it was much worse. They ended up coming back another week later, and did some work while I was at work. I came home to a hole in my closet. The next day, I came home to 1/4 of my ceiling missing all above my bed. The next day, even more of my ceiling was missing and the HVAC system was shut off. We had to go a few days without any HVAC all while it was miserably humid and extremely hot (near 100). I haven't slept in my bed for a week and everyone in the house has been miserably uncomfortable every night. It was worth driving 9 hours back and forth for a 3 hour visit just to enjoy the wonderful sensation of A/C.
