      I have only passing familiarity with slate roofs, but I've never seen a slate roof system like this. There's plastic interlayment between every course and each slate is held in place by hooks. The overlap between slates is only 1/2" to 1-1/2". Clearly this is some kind of proprietary system, but I'm not familiar with it. Does anyone recognize it?

      This has happened to me once before. I kick my foot through the photoelectric safety reverse beam of the overhead garage door - near one of the beams - and the door does not reverse. I try again near the center of the door opening and the door goes up like it is supposed to. I repeat, and the same thing happens?? Anyone experience this? Remarks?

      Hi. I am just looking for any advice or tips on how to get started in roof and building inspections. I am currently employed.

      Got another question about the vapor barrier in our car port/workshop. I'm putting in R28 insulation and was thinking of putting a layer of GPS over that and then covering with a soffit material. 2 x 10 I-Joists. Really not sure if this should be covered in poly with acoustic sealer or not? There seems to be a few different opinions on how this should be done including the insulation. Any advise would be helpful.
