Underlayment For Your Roof From Sherriff-Goslin

by Sherriff-Goslin

Underlayment is the invisible component of your roof that lies beneath your roofing shingles and provides an extra layer of protection for your home.

Most homeowners do not realize that even with the most durable roofing shingles your roof needs underlayment matching in quality to deliver optimal defense against the harsher elements of Mother Nature.

First and foremost, consult a professional roofing expert, like Sherriff-Goslin, with any questions or concerns you may have. Sherriff-Goslin contractors are extremely knowledgeable in knowing the best products for your roof, keeping in mind important factors like your area’s climate conditions, quality of products needed per your specific need(s), as well as knowledge of standards to pass inspection(s).

There are three types of underlayment: felt, rubberized asphalt, and synthetic.

Saturated felt is the standard underlayment of choice because there is no specific performance needs to contemplate. Rubberized asphalt is typically attached to a roof

by staples, so if you live in an area with high winds, this may not be the best option as the underlayment may tear. Synthetic underlayment is popular for tropical areas, or if your roof is under construction, as synthetic felt can easily withstand intense rays of heat from the sun and will block water penetration.

Don’t let cost disturb your underlayment selection in the present to only be burdened with problems later down the road.

Mobile applications are taking over. With efficiency provided through iPads and mobile smartphones, more than likely a tool needed by a contractor to complete a project is only a download away. Applications provide document download with easy storage and accessibility, along with roofing shingle visualizer apps to sample a shingle’s color, texture, and style before purchase.

Geo-fencing is a virtual barrier that uses GPS tracking to locate an object. Ironically, this application is primarily used to assist in timesheet compliance. For instance, geo-fencing will record when an employee is on or off a worksite location so there is no need for that employee to physically write down his or her hours of work. Think of geo-tracking as a timesheet management tool for managers.

(DIY) How To Make A Fire Pit At Home

by Sherriff-Goslin

Making a fire pit at home is not difficult to do. The trick is to ensure safety when actually using the fire-producing pit and not burn everything else that surrounds. Follow these guides to the ultimate landscape features and company eye-catcher for any occasion, even for cool summer nights!

First thing you want to do is select an area of land that is flat without over hangings draped above that could catch flame. After selecting an area, dig a hole that is at least 4 feet wide and 3 feet deep. Keep in mind the deeper the hole, the more wood you will need inside. Also, the more wood you have the larger the fire will be.

After you have dug the hole to your desired depth, width, and shape, it’s time to fill the pit with lava rocks. Tip: for a 2-foot hole you will need three 5-gallon buckets of lava rock. Cover the inside completely so any underlying dirt or sand will be left invisible.

Place stones, bricks, or other preferred rock around the sides of the fire pit. Set the stones slightly tilted on their sides, confirming the top of the stones reach the top of the hole, equal in height to the surrounding surface of the fire pit’s edge. Brush away surrounding sod, grass, or other debris from the edge of the pit that could catch fire.4927753014_703e1c7043

Next, place stones around the rim of the fire pit. These stones around the edge should be larger than those tilted around the inside of the pit. Make sure the stones are fire resistant! Lastly, fill the top area stones with small rocks, dirt, or sand in the cracks for nice visual appearance.

Adorn your pit with any other finishing touches once you are done, but make sure nothing is flammable! Ready? Light away!
