Hey Joe, Now that you are a famous author, and have taken the time to re-write the bible twice and written a fiction book, is it time to redo another issue of TR? Has it really been 8 years? John Crookston

Hey Joe, are there any plans to put out another issue. I am having serious withdrawal symptoms.

I just realized it has been a Looong time since we had one. I am willing to help if that would make any difference. I am sure others would too, if we know just what to do. John Crookston

He brings up a very good point. It is fun to be able to pick it up and actually read it!

The passion for the subject oozes from the pages, and though it is "only" roofing, it lives and breathes. I know I eat and breathe roofing and building, and I know how hard it is to have things look perfect. Again for all who wrote and contributed, "A job well done"

Joe,
Your TR magazine is great. It is put on my coffee table with the other rags after I'm done pouring through it. Visitors seem to always pick it up first and often comment favorably on its content. Even though I have bought a few items from your store in Barkeyville I know that I'm not one of your biggest customers (by a long shot)so I really appreciate that I get a copy of the TR for free. I know it is now the digital age but it is still nice to occasionaly receive information the "old fashioned way", especially when it is well done.
Kirk

The same with the ice and water shield. We all smoke and eat the food they give us and that damages the body too!

Following Joe's posting to the content of materials containing asbestos, as I understand it for Asbestos to be a problem it must be 'friable', the particulates must me breathed in. You can eat all of it you want just don't inhale.

If I am missing something do clarify.

Otherwise Liam's Moose Roof is still freaking awesome!

Old School,

People get cancer because of exposure to carcinogens in the environment. Every time we buy and use materials that contain high percentages of carcinogens, we are adding to the total load of cancer causing agents in the environment. When there is a choice between using materials laden with carcinogens, or using materials that are more benign, then I will choose the more benign.

I don't think that modern roof cement contains asbestos as it once may have. Can you produce any evidence that it does? If so, I would like to see it.

Joe, one concern or question about the article about ice buildup and its "solutions" What is the difference between two layers of felt with plastic cement between the layers and using Ice and Water with a slip sheet over it?

I know you had the Obituary of the guy that died of cancer on the same page with the MSDS sheet, but the two are only remotely related. Plastic roofing cement still has asbestos fibres in it and beside, one would have to roll in the I & W to get in on you in half the quantities you get with working with roof cement. I always get it spread all over me and I hate it.

Some of the newer synthetic felts also have a self stick feature with a non stick surface that gives excellent traction. Titainum DL and such are very impressive and they can last exposed in the sun for months. We use it beneath standing seam roofs.

If there is a way to ventilate a roof properly, and not have the insulation touching the underside of the roof, Ice proplems will disappear. The reason you have no ice problems on a barn is that there is no heat inside it. A garage works the same way; without heat. Most of the problems we are seeing with slate is on older homes with old roofs that have been "retrofitted" to be more energy efficient. Necesssary in these time of high energy costs, but hell on the buildings.

I figured someone was going to call you on that, and I might as well be the first.

I was so excited to see that in the mail! Great informative articles as usual, and I really love that front cover. Can't thank you enough for the time put in for all of this.

Congrats to Liam and John, your work is inspirational I hope many see it and realize that a roof is more than 'just a roof'.

Joe (and others)thanks for the work you do on TR, I look forward to it and greatly appreciate it. This publication really should be put out where others can see it and start dreaming about how great there home or building could look with this sort of work on it.

I thank you all.

Liam, congratulations on the Moose camp roof!! wow!

John chan, The copper work on the cone shaped tower was great. Seeing the pictures of the wood work at the convention helped. Heck of a job! Joe, I read all the articles you wrote. Until someone has to do that much work, they have no idea how hard it really is. Great job.

It is interesting that we are getting a lot of readers from over the pond reading the magazine and also investigating the forum. That bodes well for us.

Heck of a job guys. Very good issue.
