And A.D.,.,I won’t be to hard to spot.,Just look for the only person with a hard hat,safety glasses, a harness wearing a diaper with a binky and sporting a big rattle in my left hand.,and not to forget one gray sock with a flash light duct taped to my nail gun in my left hand.,. :lol:
Congratulations on the win!
I know this is a bit off-thread but I came in on your history of roofing sections you submitted last month. I was very interested in the processes you described (galvanized roofing), invention dates, and so on. As an archaeologist I am often left with bits and pieces of structures and it helps considerably when I can say when a structure was built or at least “last modified or remodeled” using some of the building materials. Nails have been fairly well dated and their manufacture researched but there are some materials that it is hard to find “first use” dates or popularity dates. We often find fragments of corrugated metal roofing, galvanized roofing. asphalt shingles and these all have use dates associated with them.
I am particularly interested if you know when galvanized roofing nails were first used in the US? I know that the process is an old one - 19th century but galvanized roofing nails we tend to find on sites dating from the first quarter of the twentieth century. Were galvanized roofing nails used earlier?
Congrats when the show is done it will be on air in a month or two from the finsh date,they came here to buffalo two years ago and thats how long it took, get your fifteen mins of fame and do some networking with other contracters ,this will open up a lot of doors for you ,take advantage of it,.ITS worth IT
Hey Roofmaster, how about if I just meet you and Jason out there and we can party for a couple of days? Let’s be clear, I’m not doing anything that resembles work. I’m thinking that when they pull that big RV out the way, the three of us can be standing there exposing ourselves with a fifth of some kind of booze in each hand. The ratings will skyrocket!!!
I know donl is going to be P.M’n you saying “A.D.,Don’t encourage him” but;
Hell yes.,We can be wearing our loin cloths made out of Moisture Guard (Sticky side OUT),with the tops of Power Vents as chest protectors,Furnace Caps as head ware,some Epdm as our capes,yielding tater forks yakking about being celestial warriors.
Once they moved that bus.,they would see us and say.,WTF are you doing.,back up that bus.,Hahahahaha
