Daily Prompt :Superficial

In response to daily prompt :  Superficial

Last March we had a wind storm, there was only a superficial damage at one corner of the house, The strong wind blew off part of the siding in one corner of our house. Even though it was a minor damage. Aesthetically it ruined the look of the house.

Passersby often pointed out that  a slight damage to one corner of the house spoiled its outward appearance.

I called the company to take care of it, but the manager was in no hurry, each time I called he told me he’d look after it, next week. Several weeks passed I didn’t hear from anyone in that company.

I complained that  by the time they come to do the work, it would be winter. I got in touch with the adjuster via email, she forwarded my email to the supervisor. A day later they called me, and assured me they will start the work.

After five and a  half months, the workers came, pulled off the old siding of the house and replaced it with new. There were two conscientious workers, they told me they’d complete the work in five days and they almost did, but  they ran out of a piece of material and had to  come back one more day to finish the work.

Now the neighbors will no longer complain about the damaged corner which truly was an eyesore!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Your post reminds me of how challenging it can be to maintain a house in good condition.

    All good wishes,
