Male , 41-45

I am tauras Taurus. Gemini Gemini. For those who understand that :) I was a soldier and always will be at heart. I am open minded and blunt. I love to discuss and debate, but I believe that arguing is pointless and doesn't accomplish anything. I am random at times and love to interject sarcasm to lighten the mood. It was once said of me in combat that I made ducky situations not so sucky. :) I will literally chat about anything. Nothing has offended me that bad in 42 years. If it does, I'll say so. There seems to be quite alot I am learning about myself. Let's see where this adventure leads.

  • Proper flashing techniques

    Posted on: September 23rd, 2012 at 1:26PM

    Ha! Gottcha! You've got a dirty mind! Shame shame ;°} (me too) I was a roofer and specialty sheet metal fabricator and installer for many years. I am factory trained and certified by many of the larger metal roof manufacturers in the USA and Canada. Proper flashing will ensure that your roof will never leak. The water tightness of a metal roof depends almost entirely on the sealant or caulking. The best thing to do then, take most of it out of the equation. Flashing, in roofer terms, is the metal around the edges to divert water away from the structure or to channel water to a desired location.
