    Roof Part Name?

    Thank you for the answers, Jim & Bill. I'd forgotten about this post from last year. Dragging up memories!

    Raised stair nosing

    This place is always good for a chuckle or two and sometimes a downright loud belly laugh!
  3. There's always that one dang grammar nazi hanging around, huh Jerry. "Neoprene (also polychloroprene or pc-rubber) is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range." My apologies for not being so specific as to include the word "synthetic' in front of rubber in my post. 😁 😁 😁
  4. Seen a bunch of lead flashings chewed up by squirrels. Though it seems to take longer than it takes for the rubber ones to dry rot.

    Sometimes you wonder!

    I presume you charged appropriately for your time. Were you nice enough to bring the phone down or just let them know it was up there?

    It's Never-Ending

    Just about the time you thought you'd seen it all! I've seen manufactured houses with almost that set up but the blower door is usually full of louvers to allow air flow.

    Interesting video about screw placement in metal roofs and why they should be in the flat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Iun3uRIDEA

    So, not only do you have to enable your own signature, you also have to click the little button at the top of the box to "show other people's signatures. By the way, in my Chrome, my name is at top right, not top left.

    Yes, on a PC, not a phone. No signatures showing on any of the posts.

    Ham handed screwers don't know how to stop and were crushing the ridges!

    Crappy drill press

    Odd, I'm not seeing any signatures on your post.
