I met with Ray last week. He's doing a job about five minutes from my house. Beautiful work. He said he could probably use my help once he gets it ready. He's dealing with some framing issues right now and waiting on carpenters. We spoke a little about the SRCA, and he seemed to be under the impression that it was a eastern thing, you know. But he did seem interested in the conferences and stuff, so who knows? I'm sure we'll talk more about it later. Thanks for the referal Joe. And let me know if theres anything I can do, as far as SRCA stuff goes. Like I said, I have some down time right now.

Kroeck is not an SRCA member. I am encouraging them to join, however. So far they have not.

We have used Flexim on several jobs over the last 4 years. It is good stuff. We get it from a distributor in the Detroit area. It is made in the Netherlands I think. Very good product! Nice video Joe.

Well don't go blowin' out your legs before the next SRCA gathering. You got off easy on that roof in Kentucky. We're gonna need you to get up there and break a sweat on the next one.

Joe, a perfectionist I can work with. My friend who hangs gutter for me also does Mr. Kroek's gutter work and is supposed to get us together sometime in the next week or so. My only hesitation was that the opposite might be true, with regards the the "perfectionist" thing. But sounds like a man I should talk to. Thanks.

David, I am above ground, but my knees and legs hurt. Getting too old for this game. Only 20 or so years to go till I retire though.

Maybe I will go into the consulting business like Joe. He says its "easy money"

Just kidding Joe!

David - contact Ray Kroeck (pronounced Kreck), Kroeck and Sons slate roof specialists in Sacramento: 877-994-9000. He is a perfectionist, but may be able to use some help. I put up a video with him on it recently here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kh0-kYPxREY

Looks like what they used to call "English Grey". I never used it on a project, but the sample pieces I've had looked pretty good. Watch out for quality control issues from those guys. We did a job using their, what was called at the time "strata grey". It had good workability, but lots of pirites and curls in it. Had to order lots more to make up for waste pieces. It was a small job and I was under the gun to finish, so I didn't bother hagling the replacement pieces, it was made clear in the call that they weren't going to offer to replace them for free. Unless specifically requested by a client, I would source the stone domestic. Many good resources on this sight for new and salvaged slate you will probably find more reliable easier to work with, both product and personel.

Sorry I need to rephrase that. Anyone who has used chinese slate from American Slate Company, color Great Smokies. Thoughts or tips appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim
