A Lady’s Is­land res­i­dent re­turned home Wed­nes­day to find a busi­ness card, two pic­tures and a note apol­o­giz­ing for dam­age to her roof, a Beau­fort County Sher­iff’s Of­fice po­lice re­port says.

“My guys were sent to re­place your neigh­bor’s roof and hopped on yours by mis­take,” the note says. “We are sorry for the mis­take.”

The note also promised that dam­age shown in the pic­tures would be fixed by the com­pany.

“We are in the process of get­ting what lit­tle dam­age was done fixed,” The note says. “This will be fixed to­day. There will be no leaks or last­ing dam­age.”

The woman im­me­di­ately called her hus­band, who in­structed she should call the po­lice.

Deputies con­tacted the roofing com­pany, and an em­ployee con­firmed they were in the process of gather­ing ma­te­ri­als to fix the roof.

The re­port says, the woman agreed to let a team of work­ers on the house to do the re­pairs. She also told po­lice, sev­eral hours later, that the roof ap­peared to be fixed.
