Metal Roofing......

1275 views

I was excited to try out the roof pieces on the Summerhouse,so propped them in place to have a look. While looking at the roof as a whole, I realized that there is no way to hide all the tab slots and have the "seams" line up.

I was puzzling about this when I decided to check out images online. So, on most of the roofs the seams lined up, but then there were some that didn't so I guess I am okay. I'm not sure how much the seams will show anyway after I do the verdigris work. Have to go finish some grass mowing, then I will be back. Was dragging my tail feathers after mowing the lawn! LOL! Almost a 1/2 acre with a push mower! Whew! After looking at the pictures of roofs online, I noticed that on some of them the seams lined up with the middle of the spaces on adjoining pieces of roof. My layout has pretty much worked out that way too, so I am happy with it. I started by painting the main sections of the roof with the Bronze.

After a light sanding, I temporarily put them on the house to start laying out the seams.

Here is the front roof piece with the seams almost complete.

It's been a little tricky covering the tab slots and lining up the seams, but I figure life is full of imperfection, right? LOL!

This still needs a piece here and there and then the painting can start! Have a great evening all!

Maybe you can get around that by putting them in an album labeled for this particular Blog. Then when you are in your blog, link them from the album like we did with the My Media button in regular posts. Not exactly sure what thats called the in the new format. 

Btw, I can't see pictures in anyone's posts or blogs - not just yours. Seems to be anything posted before the update began.

I'll bet the picture issue will be resolved soon. It's on the list of fixes, I'm thinking but just hasn't gotten up to the top of the list yet. I can't imagine that GL would want to loose all their team instruction blogs. I suck at being patient and this update isn't helping my patience level to rise much, I must say. I keep telling myself - Selkie - breathe now - get your big nose out of the way and give the workers a chance to do their stuff. Thus far, I'm just sputtering and fussing like the old lady that I am.

At least there is hope now with the notice Logan put up about known issues. I guess this is our "test" of patience. I hate tests, btw!!

Blogs seems to always have "stuff" happen. I know Casey talks about issues with hers (and Tessie's) and a friend of mine just closed hers and left it all behind and started a brand new one because she was so fed up with issues with hers. I couldn't figure out why she used the same provider for the second one though. Still scratching my head on that one. I'd have jumped ship if I'd been her. Seems to plague all the companies that host them though so it probably doesn't matter which you choose. 

Inherently fussy I guess. (tee hee)

Regular inspection of roof is very important as you can check minor leaks and damages , repair them on time which results into no more damage to the roof.So before spring always have your roof inspected by Roofing Contractor for prolong life.

Maybe he'd like to shingle the Laurel for me!

If you say that you can do roof repair in perfect manner then it's impossible. There must be 1% error in it which can be neglected but error is sill there. That's why agree with you that life is full of imperfection
