No bigger scam in real estate than roofing. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Just because there is a manufacturers defect, doesn't mean it will even affect you. It can't be that defective if it's lasted this long already.
A roof shouldn't be more than 7-8k, and it sounds like in your market it may well be half that, b/c I don't see how a house could sell for $180k, and have a roof that costs $15k to put on. That just makes no sense.
When first learning of Brian Williams' own veracity problem this week, one former Clinton aide said he was "chagrined," thinking "this will bring back something from that campaign and those parallels will be drawn as if what she did was exactly like what Brian Williams did."
Clinton had said during a March 2008 speech that while visiting Bosnia in 1996 as first lady, she remembered "landing under sniper fire." A greeting ceremony had to be canceled, she said, as her party "ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."
Videotape showed Clinton and her daughter Chelsea and their entourage instead striding across a tarmac with smiles and greeting a retinue of well-wishers.
