Hi Y'all
 
Hi everyone. Brand new member here. I found the forum looking for info and just stumbled onto a link on Goggle. I love renovating and fixing up houses and have done quite a few in my day. I just bought a new house in Niagara Falls Ontario and you know what? There is almost nothing to do to this house. I'm sure it won't take long though before my better half wants something changed.

I owned and operated a roofing company for about 20 years. After 20 years I had enough fighting weather, gravity and all the rest that goes along with roofing. I totally changed and instead of looking up all the time at roofs I started looking down all the time at pavement. I spent the last 20 years of my working life in the paving business.

Roofing is funny though. Once it's in your blood it's hard to get it out. I still managed to do a few roofs every year even though I was always up to my neck in alligators trying to get all the paving done. They were almost always BIG PROBLEM roofs and that is why they eventually came to me since I tended to do those roofs that no one else wanted to do.

So now I'm retired and just taking it easy. I'm refinishing a bunch of furniture at the moment and as soon as this snow goes I'll have a lot of gardening to do seeing my entire yard is a big Japanese garden.

I'm sure I'll have fun around here and learn a lot. I'm pretty good with any roofing or paving questions too.

Better knock on wood, just to be safe. :laughing:
