Uneducated Economist Turns Roofer / What Should a Roof Cost?




Tips for Selecting a Roofing Company

Before making the important decision of “replacing the roof over your head” please consider a few things before you do. Having been through this process several times, there are several factors to consider when deciding on a roofing company.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Thatching

Since before the time of Christ humans have been using thatch materials to construct durable roofing for homes and communal buildings. This offered the protection from the elements and was a resource effective way of utilising the raw materials freely available around them. In the modern age thatch is no longer a “cheap” roofing option, but when properly installed offers an attractive yet practical way to roof a building.

How To Install Flat Roofing

If you have some basic DIY skills then you can install a flat roof yourself. And that applies whether it’s a new building or extension or whether it’s an established building that needs a new roof.

Wildfire Preparedness

The summer of 2012 is shaping up to be an active wildfire season. Defensible perimeter and fire resistant building materials will greatly increase the chances for structure survivability in a wildfire event.

Roof Repair – Immediate Solution

If you own a house or an office then you have the idea that roof is the most important part of a house or office. During the monsoon season and heavy rainstorms, you find yourself in a situation in which your roof gets damaged and water starts leaking from it. This leakage can make the foundations of your roof weak and increase the chances that it may fall off on the ground. As a result, roof repairing becomes necessary in such situations and requires immediate action for the problem.

The Tools of a Master Thatcher

A master thatcher needs a range of tools during the construction of a thatch roofed building. These include a thatching sickle, thatching spade, thatching needles and climbing hooks or foothold poles.
