I have taken on the daunting task of painting all the interior walls inside my house while my wife and son go on vacation.
This could get interesting.
when the kids came to smash it again, the recoil from the bat bouncing off the concrete not giving way, killed him.
And then the mailbox guy went to jail, so don't go too nutz getting revenge.
I saw it on TV it must be true.
yeah, I saw that one too. I thought he was pretty clever.
In my country, that would all be true as well, but you'd get *thwacked* for the apostrophe in parents.
I didn't have a blade long enough for my saber saw so I cut the pieces with my chainsaw. The inlay to cross the two pieces together was mostly done with the chainsaw too. I even managed to angle it slightly so it leans out towards the street while keeping the post further inside. Not too shabby for chainsaw surgery. I'll post pics after it's planted outside.
Anybody else see a good deal anywhere.
My contract of course says you must use them as your only provider, but that little clause is less important to me than saving money.
We opened up the 2nd floor ceiling in several places. As far as I can tell, the water is not entering where I thought it was, at the top of the peak where two different sections of roof meet. It's either coming directly down through the shingle field, or it's defying gravity and coming up from the bottom (somewhat plausible considering that it's an extremely gentle slope).
Gotta cut out more ceiling and find out. I am not looking forward to this.
Ok, so it does appear to be at or close to the location where we replaced the plywood, but there's a layer of shingles and a layer of ice and water shield below that.
Unless the ice and water shield melted, seeped into the crack, and then left a gap? How the heck am I supposed to fix this without ripping the whole roof off?
Absolutely no idea.
WTF is shingle field.
WTF Ice and water thingy.
We have perlin's. rafters sit on these and then goes the felt layer (some new fangled thing is used today, not sure what its called) then the laths hold that inplace and provide an anchor point for the tiles. Bit of lead flashing (not actually lead these days) round the edges of chimneys and other things that protrude through the roof and your done.
"Ice and water shield" is a material that comes in rolls, and you lay it down on the bare wood instead of just using tar paper. Then you put the shingles on top of that. After installation, heat from the sun melts it somewhat so it turns into a non water permeable layer. Basically it's like a tar layer except a lot easier to apply. On a typical, steeply pitched roof, it's typically applied towards the bottom, but since this particular section of my roof has such a shallow pitch, we applied it to the entire thing.
Try a bucket of water and some food coloring. It could be the water is getting under the shingles and running between the shingles and underlayment until it finds a hole. The food coloring will help you spot the leak.
I had ass-umed that the previous homeowner used roll roofing because he was cheaping out, but in retrospect, his builder may have specified it for exactly that reason.
We're going to go over the shingles with a more modern rolled roofing product.
The edges are also going to be fitted with new flashings that will ensure that absolutely all water ends up in the gutter instead of potentially rolling back under the roof.
