No we didn't it is original from when the house was built. They were going to redo the drywall and move a few wall around. All they got done was removing most of the drywall. So we just put drywall back up on the original walls and didn't move any.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


todays roof
biggest to date
my friends...i just supplied labour
17 sq torn off, and put on again
drip edge, ice and water!
started at 615. we had one side ripped and prepped for ice and water within an hour.
boogied away, i set the step pattern and my other 2 friends carried across.
for newby roofers they really do a good job
1 vent stack and 3 roof vents, i don't like how high they are but HO wanted it like that...
the one side was done by 1130
then we hopped over and started the next side
i love roofing.
i mean im a "framer" but all my work is roofing. i am doing another house for my friend whos i did last week, and whos garage i did at the beginning. I make some good coin doing it though, and when i get my insurance in place. i will be able to take on more and more jobs. Until then, i am just a laborer, that is it.
The counter flashing was in meh shape.
so what i did was put a layer of peel and stick underneath the step flashing and around the upper saddle and lower pan.
The original step flashing was intended for a smaller exposure shingle..that being said i had to double it up and have some sticking out, for the overlap and steps to work out.. can't see it.
I would have liked to have done it new but..
any old holes in the step flashing was caulked, and with the shingles and ice and water, nothing is getting past that!
the power pole was a piece of angle iron, and one of the other guys passed it, with ice and water, shingles and silicone roof caulking. did a really good job. This roof was fun to really boogey and lay down some squares.
the way the shingles are packaged the BP archi's, they stick together so without a passer it can be clumsy to efficiently separate and nail em
cap is dead straight.
lines are good.
all in all.
customers happy, im happy. property is cleaned and shingles are going to be dumped tomorrow.
onto the next one!
I did not think we would be able to do 1 side in a weekend, never mind the whole friggin house in 1 day

Nick
Please listen to me. Get yourself some correct fall protection. On slip on a wrapper, or a hose, and your gone. Might only be 9-10' fall but it could be lights out. It is the LAW here to wear it. Don't make a bad habit of doing this already.
Speed and production should be the last of your list. Get your saftey stuff in order. I'm sure Chris might even lend you a set if you need it for now. A roofers starter kit is about 200$. This should be your next purchase.

Nick, i couldn't agree with Kyle more. If this is the kind of work you want to do as career, let make sure ya live long enough to start it. After our little chat's i'm pretty much scared for you, taking these risks already. I dont think it is a good idea. Also i'm not trying come down on you but just trying to give you friendly advice cause i care. So please get yourself some equipment bud.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job -- Part II


yep. i sometimes forget that. but these reminders and the little reminders on site (slips) sober me up.
You would use a harness on that roof?
Well, you know what, im gonna go to IHL one of these days and pick up a nice harness, not a ****ty one. and that whole kit. and i will encourage my fellow workers to do so.
thanks
i got another 6sq roof coming up this weekend!
