call to step up and make the sacrifice required to gain and keep the many freedoms we enjoy in this country. Maybe tomorrow everyone can do something special for someone, unexpected and
maybe even undeserved, in memory and honor of those that served and continue to serve. You never know the impact a simple act of kindness can have.
The whole concept of Hometalk is based on people helping others, not expecting anything in return. I am honored to be a part of it. Tomorrow let's take that same energy and step outside our normal circle and do something special for someone.
And please...... no "thumbs-ups" on this post...that isn't the intent......but feel free to share a comment if you are so moved......
No, this is not a trick question and I really don't know the answer. I suppose I could shoot a private message to the right folks and therefore hide my ignorance from the crowd, but I
suspect there are a whole bunch of us interested in the right answer as well.
Since I spent my first hour up on a roof, I understood that proper attic ventilation was required to help prolong the service life of the roof system. I understood that the roof sheathing actually dissipated heat from the underside into the attic which helped keep the roof cooler. This is why we are required to maintain an air gap between the sheathing and any insulation.... to allow this heat to dissipate and therefore keep the roof cooler, however slight.
My question is with the use of radiant-heat barriers and/or spraying foam insulation against the sheathing in the rafter bays, haven't we essentially eliminated the roof's ability to dissipate heat on the inside and therefore inadvertantly decreased the service life of the roof? Thinking out-loud here...thanks..
First an earthquake....who would have thought; and now it appears we may have a date with a mean-spirited young lady named Irene. A dozen different topics come to mind, from preparation
for a major storm to dealing with the damage to your home following the event. Rather than post a specific question, perhaps "lessons-learned" comments from fellow Hometalk members regarding something they would have done differently would be helpful to those of us preparing to deal with this irate young lady........
