The ones made by US Steel are called Galvalum & somehow or another they say the color will never fade. If I should live long enough to need one on my garage or house that's the way I'll go. My luck the day before I'm ready to buy they will quit the discount to retired employees. :mad: Besides sliding off don't even attempt to do it in any kind of wind.

Wish I could've done the barn with that stuff. Either way, I'm not doing it again. I figure by the time these start leaking, I'll have the choice of either going over them, or leaving it to rot. No family to leave this to, so I'll be damned if the state gets a free ride on my dime! I'm timing it just right so when I check out, there won't be much left ... if anything. :lol:

Awww *censored* ... it's Tuesday! I thought it was SATURDAY!! :| Looks like I missed out on the party. Wish I could tell you what the F I did the past 10 days ..... :? :gee: :what:

Metal roof is the way to go...
still day no wind makes a happy install...
Setting the first one properly makes the rest of the install go...
Do not ever try to slide down a modern metal roof...
they use screws and the heads hurt...

We had a guy in town who was installing metal roofing in the wind and it took a sheet he was holding and blew it into the powerlines...that left one dead guy and two fatherless kids! :-(

That Galvalum is good stuff. They used to use it on the ships for the US Navy. They heat an aluminum/zinc combination up to high temperature and then spray it on the steel and it bonds to it. It is kind of like a combination of molten steel and paint mixed together. It will last forever, but is very expensive, too expensive for the Navy to apply to their ships anymore.

Ahhhh I just said "durable", didn't mean to demean metal roofs! The panels say AKZO on the white underside and I think he put that roof on in '92. Minor rust showing. He wanted me to paint that barn roof for the last few years. It could be done, but when you paint a barn roof like that, then you are inviting more maintenance. I think the panels are factory painted with a product called Valspar, maybe baked on enamel. All in all, not bad, green paint is faded if you look close. I went to a couple local big roofing suppliers yesterday, one guy couldn't be bothered with a short order, the other guy can get panels in a week; saw a sample that is similar but less sharp lines. That's good, always heard paint fails on sharp lines first and that's how this stuff is wearing.
He found a place in Ephrata, PA, ABM ,that can deliver. This guy could pinch a penny and get two dimes out of it, trying to avoid a delivery charge :D
This guy is an old timer and VIP in this town, farmer family that owned huge parcels of land here over the years. You won't meet harder working people though. He keeps everything in order that's for sure. The guy is 72 and still does landscaping around town.
Today we're going to put a better tarp over the end. He put that one on himself by rolling the tarp up over a piece of 2" pvc pipe. Carried it up to the ridge, placed it, and just let it roll down! The roof frame is the kind of firring strips that used to hold cedar shingles.
Anybody knows of a favorite brand name LMK.

When I worked on a DOT bridge crew in Maine, we put that on a bridge in a difficult test area. It was applied by a specialist and he really went out of his way to show us the test pieces and how it worked. He had a gun that heated the mixture with Acetylene and sprayed it on. It could spray many materials including ceramics. Never got back to learning more about it, always thought it had applications in the real world. Now with liquid salt being sprayed on the roads up North, even more so.

The tin roofs on my house, shop, and barn are all 90 years old now. House roof never leaked. Its been Silver-painted when needed. Shop roof has a pin hole or 2, time to Silver paint it. Barn has never been treated and it looks like it is all rusted now, but it is leak-free.

We figured it out at my house yesterday, at least on what caused us to have our 4th child...

We blamed it on the kids going back to school, but after a little thought we realized that was around the time of Memorial Weekend. Every 6 weeks our kids, (1 mine) (2 being step kids) go back to their respective parents leaving my wife and I alone for the weekend. This past memorial Weekend landed on that every 6th week. So we went up to a place in Northern Maine to do some camping.

I guess this is a NoSmoke trait; my parents went camping up to Nova Scotia 39 years ago and I was a byproduct of that trip. Even got a middle name out of it so they would never forget..."Scott"

As for us, if going on a camping trip to Eustis, Maine was not Redneck enough, we had the Chevy Blazer that weekend and rather then pitch a tent, we just slept in the back with the backseat down. Now how in the world am I going to explain to my son/daughter 18 years from now their mother was a respectable woman but somehow managed to conceive them in the backseat of a Chevy Blazer. They are going to think she was the biggest Redneck Mom this side of the Mason-Dixon Line! :D

Oh I know how it happened... :lol:
The famous line every one who did IVF...
and ends up with the bonus round...
No way you will get preggers without IVF...
Did it the old fashioned way for 8 months prior with no results...
Do IVF get twins...
Think IVF if we ever want any more...
Prove doctors wrong on first dip in the pool...
The twins musta fixed something while they were haning out for 8 months...

Congratulations, yours are due the same time mine is.

We tried IVF twice and it was a no go, then a few months later my boys decided to swim a little harder I guess because it happened, now we are just waiting to see what flavor it is going to be.
