The Homes I Flip Get a Little Help from Me and the Experts

I’m a husband and a father of four children. We had one little girl, and then the next thing my wife and I knew, she was pregnant with twins. We always thought we would have only two children, so to find ourselves with 4 children was a shock. I decided that I needed a way to earn more money for my family. My father-in-law told me that I should try flipping homes. I have done well with it so far by doing most of the work on my own. Recently, I decided to hire roofing contractors in Bronx NY to help the process along. While I have done pretty well on most of the interior work on the homes I have bought and flipped, I do not know how to do electrical work and I have found that I do not do as well on roofs as the experts can.

My dad was a carpenter, so I learned some things from watching him when I was a young boy. I had no siblings, so my dad was my best friend. I often grew bored at home when left alone, so I would ask my dad if I could go with him to whatever construction project he was working on. Most often, he was happy to have me come along if he was not working at a location that was too dangerous for a young boy. Those experiences bonded us to this day.

It has been a lot of fun to work on old houses in order to bring them alive with new work and then turn around and sell them. It has really helped me to be able to take care of my family’s financial needs much better than my previous job did. Now that I use roofing contractors to help speed up the work, my new career has been even more enjoyable.
