      NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration including the mutual
promises contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:

      1.    WARRANTIES. Seller's right, title and interest in, to and under the
roof warranty set forth on EXHIBIT A attached hereto and made a part hereof (the
"Warranty") was not assigned to Purchaser at the closing of the Transaction

Seller shall use its best efforts to obtain the aforementioned consent (upon the
receipt of which Seller shall assign such Warranty to Purchaser) or have the
Warranty reissued in the name of Purchaser. Seller shall be responsible for the

consent or the re-issuance of the Warranty. Seller shall, until the first to

name of Purchaser, cooperate with Purchaser, at no cost to Seller, with respect
to the enforcement of the terms and provisions of, and any and all claims under,
the Warranty.

Parties") harmless from any loss, cost or expense incurred by any Indemnified
Party, including costs and attorneys fees, ("Loss") as a result of Sellers'
failure to obtain the required documents or complete its obligations under this
Agreement, or any Loss that results from a certificate hereafter being false of

this Agreement shall not affect, modify or impair the validity and
enforceability of all other provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement shall
be binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their
representatives, heirs, legatees, successors, and assigns; provided, however,
that Seller shall have no right whatsoever to assign its interest under this
Agreement and any such attempted assignment shall automatically be null and void
and of no force and effect, and shall be deemed a breach by Seller of its
obligations hereunder. No failure or delay by Purchaser in exercising any right,
power or privilege under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor
shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further
exercise thereof or the exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder. No
change, amendment or modification of this Agreement shall be binding or
enforceable unless in writing and executed by the party to be bound thereby. The
covenants, agreements and indemnification provisions contained in this Agreement

prevailing party will be entitled to collect all reasonable legal fees incurred
in connection with such litigation from the non-prevailing party. Purchaser
shall have all remedies available at law and in equity on account of a default
by Seller under this Agreement. Time is of the essence of this Agreement and the
terms hereof. This Agreement maybe signed in counterparts.

      IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have executed this Post Closing and
Indemnity Agreement effective as of the first date written above.
