Atlanta Roofing

When I was growing up, a garage was a place with a tar paper roof detached from the house where mom put her car to keep it out of the rain. It was a big garage with an attic that got really hot in the summer time and a bunch of old things were stored in the attic. We re-arranged some old chairs and made sort of a clubhouse there. Permanently there was a ladder propped up to the attic and other than the little circle of chairs, we didn’t venture far into its depths.

The main part of the garage was a two buggy model so mom’s car took up about half of the concrete floor and the bikes and the lawnmower, plus a bunch of old carpeting and furniture dollies took up the other half. The Roofing was a big old piece of wood with long metal hinge levers all in one piece. With a great deal of effort, about once every five or ten years, my father would close the door. It did not close all the way, but it got close, reaching a tilt of about seven and one half degrees and protruding six inches or so from the threshold of the door.

Giant springs attached from part of the huge lever hinges to the frame of the garage. Without them, I suppose, the door would never be opened again! Of course this was back in the day well before we thought about putting an automatic electric Roofing opener on the door. I remeber them coming out though, maybe 40 or more years ago, and a neighbor who was some sort of a science guy at NASA was installing an automatic Roofing opener on his newer sort of sectional Roofing. Wow was that futuristic! I remeber my dad joking with him about whether a NASA scientist was really smart enough to install an automatic Roofing opener.

Well, I remember that was a pretty smart guy. He built his own stereo console out of vacuum tubes and wood he cut and stained himself, the parts came from a company call Heath, and these projects were called Heathkits. It was pretty cool, and actually, in those days, just about everyone learned how to use a soldering iron and a table saw. So when a ten or twenty page instruction manual confronted us for an automatic Roofing opener, it was just another challenge. We were after all only about fifty years after the advent of the Model T automobile. Many a remote farm bought two of these, insuring that there was an ample supply of parts in case one broke down. Every father and boy learned how to set the spark and the float to get the best performance and fuel economy.

Today we would never think of taking a soldering iron to our cellular phone, or assembling our own laptop computer. We take it for granted that a flat panel television might need to be shipped to a service center where they have the specialized tools and knowledge to repair them. I myself sent one off, only to receive it back a few weeks later, for a nominal fee, working like new. When I went to press the power button one day, nothing happened. I’m a pretty smart guy, I bought this domain, I linked it to a hosting service and installed a blogging package that has components of html, css, php, java, xml and mysql. But when I pressed the remote or the button on the television, nothing happened. I could only call the 800 number I found on the internet.

Yes, I want to be independent. I want to handle my own problems! But I was helpless. The fact is, if my heating or air conditioning is broken or I need to replace my water heater, I need to call a professional. That is why I am glad I know the technicians at Atlanta Roofing Repair company Golden Roofing Service. They know how to install and repair Roofings, automatic Roofing openers and they are trained to handle the dangerous springs. Todays Roofings are all loaded with springs under a great deal of tension, and you need to make sure, around Hoover Alabama and the Atlanta area to call a good company that will give you a good deal. Call Golden Roofing and be treated well, like the guys that fixed my TV.

two stroke engines

The earliest two stroke engine patent, by Karl Benz, seems to go back to 1878 in Manheim Germany. The first challenges were to compress the air and fuel mixture, to mix the air and fuel, to spark the ignition source and maintain the forward velocity of the air fuel mixture. Early two stroke engine designs experimented with seperate compression chambers, valves and other four stroke rudiments to make the engine work before the modern crankcase evacuation design was perfected.

Buford Ga Roofing Companies

Buckeighty Roofing has spent 18 years in residential roofing, asphalt shingle roofing, metal roofing and even commercial metal roofing in and around Buford Georgia, Lilburn and Braselton. Buckeighty Roofing has been around for Georgia residents in the north east suburbs of Atlanta with its excellent warranty. When replacing asphalt shingle roofs with quality roofing materials, the fine print usually pro-rates the value of the material over say 25 years. So if you bought 15 square of asphalt shingles 24 years ago and the manufacturer can be convinced to pro-rate your material replacement, you have to consider that 25 years ago shingles cost six to seven dollars a bundle, and you will be, if you can even get them to listen, to pro-rate off that original cost you paid for material. so lets say they give you five percent of 50 bundles, that adds up to fifteen bucks.

So my point here is that you should use a high quality asphalt shingle from the start, because when you look at the 25 year manufacturers material guarantee, once you get past five or so years, and you look at the fine print, there isn’t much punch to the warranty. That is not to say, when dealing with a reputable shingle manufacturer, that the longer guarantees are not worth it. Certainteed for example has a good color selection and they have a premium landmark 300 lb shingle that they call a lifetime shingle, and the warranty is good. For example, we have seen shingles blister under the hot sun. Don’t get me wrong, never with the Certainteed brand, but we have encountered these sorts of manufacturing defects.

With another manufacturer, which I refuse to name here, we have seen them come back a year later and pay to have the entire roof replaced. Now that is a warranty. It is regrettable that a manufacturing defect would inconvenience the homeowner with needing to replace the roof a year later on their home. But with the reputable asphalt shingle manufacturers, you can expect that kind of support if they did make a mistake in the manufacturing process.  Roofing also stands behind their work. We offer a seven year warranty on our workmanship. Some roofers play the same game with ten and twenty year promises, but they are just counting on going out of business and coming back under a new name later.

Gypsy roofers also are common in the roofing industry, and their workmanship is really spotty. They only want to make sure they can get their old pickup truck out of the neighborhood before the roof leaks. But not at Buckeighty Roofing. In fact for residents of Lilburn, Braselton and Buford Georgia, if you sign your roofing contract with Buckeighty Roofing before August 31, 2011 and your electric bill shows your address to be in Braselton, Buford Georgia or Liilburn on the property we are replacing the roof, we offer a free ten month follow up inspection to the roof.

Homeowners might not see the importance of inspecting a roof less than a year after replacing it. But this great idea serves to take advantage on the timing of manufacturers warranties on defects when it really pays to catch them. Most defects are readily observable by trained roofing professionals well before the leaks occur. If you read the find print on asphalt shingle roofing guarantees, even on a thirty or 40 year shingle, you will find that after a couple of years, they won’t pay much. Buckeighty Roofing has been replacing roofs for 18 years around Grayson and Buford Georgia.

So don’t hire somebody that won’t be around to help if there is a problem with your asphalt shingle roofing replacement, either because they over promised or they are just a here today and gone tomorrow bunch of storm chasers. For Buford Ga Roofing use Buckeighty Roofing company.

Atlanta Roofing

We don’t generally put a lot of thought into the roof on a house we buy or build but there are some things to know about the roofing materials that we have to choose from when replacing an asphalt shingle roof. The roof contributes to the look of the house, so when building a new house, adding on, or re-roofing, think about your choices.

If you really want to look at all the players, the choices range from asphalt shingles to clay tiles, metal roofs and rubber lookalike slate. Like stone siding, the trend in roofing is towards engineered roofing materials. This change is being driven by a few different factors. One is simply the high cost of wood. The second is that in many cases, codes now mandate the use of fireproof construction materials. And third is the enhanced look of engineered materials that create the image of something that is spectacular and unique. Still, asphalt shingle are the most dominant roofing material in the Atlanta area.

Asphalt shingles are commonly a standard three-tab shingle. They are available in a dozen or so different colors both solid and blended. The shingles made today are guaranteed for 20, or in some cases 30 years. Value is the principal advantage of this roofing but it is the same old same old. The next thing up is a thicker variation called an architectural shingle. These shingles are built up to be about twice as thick as a normal shingle with the layers staggered to give them a heavier full dimensional look. In some colors they resemble slate, and in other colors wood shakes. With a modest upgrade in cost and a 30-year guarantee, architectural shingles also represent an excellent value with an added touch of style.

Cedar shake roofs are an option, maybe in the mountains of Northern Georgia at least. 10 years ago we began using a plastic matrix product that is like a scrubby pad which allows air to circulate behind the shingles. For all their great looks, wood shingles and shakes are expensive to install and do require some periodic maintenance, typically in the form of washing to remove any mildew or moss, and then re-oiling with a clear wood finishing product. Another expensive option is slate. It lasts for generations, sheds ice and snow, and is very expensive. Instead of real slate, consider an “engineered” product, a slate lookalike fabricated from recycled rubber and plastic. It is only about one-third the weight and cost of slate, these shingles can be installed using standard tools and techniques.

Metal roofs come in the form of corrugated, galvanized sheets, have been a standard feature of barns, sheds and other agricultural and utility buildings for years. This type of roof is cheap, rugged, long-lasting and easy to install — perfect for a utility application. On the other end is a copper roof, elegant enough to grace the country’s finest mansions and public buildings. Metal is a great choice for a house in snow country, as well as in agricultural country. There is much to choose from between the galvanized low-end and the copper high-end. Several types of metal shingles are available. Regardless of the style you choose, in general, a properly installed metal roof should last you at least 50 years.

Ceramic tile roofs are found in the Mediterranean and parts of Florida and California. Barrel tiles resemble half cylinders about 16 inches long. In the old days they were individually made by hand, their tapered shape achieved by forming the clay over the top of the thigh. Tile roofs are heavy, so the roof framing must be stout. The process is labor intensive, which makes an authentic tile roof expensive, three times the cost of a standard three-tab shingle job. Additionally the tiles can fracture in the ice storms of Atlanta, We expect more rubber engineered tile roof lookalikes though to become popular.

Athens Ga Roofing

Asphalt shingle roofing has a lifespan in residential roofing applications generally of 15 to 35 years. Most asphalt shingle roofs should go at least 20 years and sometimes 30 years, but wind damage, hail storms and other environmental factors can take their toll on a roof. In Georgia the most economical asphalt shingle is the organic mat shingle, but in higher altitudes of the North Georgia mountains and the elevations of North and South Carolina many homeonwners opt for the more flexilble fiberglass reinforced mat asphalt shingles because they are less likely to crack in cold weather.
