I need a new roof. I'm afraid it will cave in this winter with the snow. I need decking to replace bad boards before someone gets hurt. Also need several repairs inside do to water damage from room. Part of my ceiling is going to drop if not repaired soon. I get enough hot water to do the dishes or for 1 person to shower a day even using a water saver.
