Re Roofing Of Older Houses

It’s an interesting observation that in a street of old houses most of the houses end up getting new roofs within a fairly short space of time. In general old houses can expect to have leaky and problem roofs, and so in a street full of old houses most of the homeowners well have been considering putting a new roof on for some time.

It only takes one homeowner to take the plunge and get a new roof installed, at which time everyone else in the street can see how attractive and tidy the roof locks, and also how phenomenally weatherproof the new roof and guttering is. The new roof would have taken 7 to 10 days to install, and during this time everyone in the street will have witnessed all of the roof strengthening work and the high quality of the roofing iron and routing attachment.

It’s sometime after the roof has been completed there will be another heavy storm with wind and rain, and everyone in the street at that stage will be reminded that they have a leaky roof and almost in every case a flimsy roof. The whole street will be very envious of the homeowner with some brand new worth.

This is a key source of business for roofing companies, because it is very likely that the homeowner we’ll be bragging to their neighbours about all the good work that was done including all the modern insulation installed in the ceiling, and they will be bragging about how warm and dry and safe their house now feels. The neighbours will obviously have a lot of confidence in the roofing Wellington provides, and the roofing company will get a lot more orders for new roofs in the same street. It obviously pays for the roofing company to do a very good job on the first house on the street, and to make sure that the homeowner is very happy with the quality of the work and the performance of the workers on site.

A good roofing company can end up with many months of new work from other houses on the street, as they become the go to company for all the neighbours who are otherwise confused as to which roofing company to choose. The First Home Owner to take the step of getting a new roof on their house send some message to all the other homeowners that this work can be done and here’s the company that you do it with.

There is a huge advantage for an older house getting a new long run steel roof, as these roofs are generally colour coated and mounted in a way which means that they are strong and also add overall strength to the roof. Steel roofs are a lot lighter then tile roofs, and are a lot more robust in wild storms, and when good insulation is installed in the ceiling then the roofs are not even loud during a heavy rainstorm.

Mankind’s Impact On Climate

The temperature of our planet is steadily increasing due to the ever increasing accumulation of CO2 as a direct result of the burning of fossil fuels over the last 120 years. Fossil fuels have enabled the huge growth and productivity in our planets history, which has enabled the massive improvements in living standards right across the globe.

The vast increase in manufacturing capability driven by a large number of Titans of industry is the direct result all the efforts of hundreds of thousands if not millions of very clever Engineers and capitalists over the past century and a half.

Sadly  the efforts of all of these clever and hardworking people will result in near catastrophic climate change if the growth in fossil fuel use remains unchecked. Ironically it may be that a small handful of individuals are the direct cause of fossil fuels being stopped in their tracks.

The individual likely to have the most impact is Elon Musk,  the CEO of Tesla. Musk is an exceptional visionary with exceptional Engineering and marketing skills and with an exceptional ability to raise capital.

He has  correctly forecast the technology and economic conversion necessary for electric vehicles, solar power and battery storage, and through Tesla has arrived at 2017  in an ideal position to be able to massively disrupt the way the world travels and sources and uses power.

In particular he has correctly forecast that AI technology will make fully autonomous driving absolutely practical in one to two years, and he has made certain that he has an affordable and highly desirable vehicle  ready for manufacturing at scale  and used for transport as a service at least two to three years ahead of any other vehicle manufacturer.

Musk through Tesla has forced  all vehicle manufacturers to rapidly put together an electric vehicle program and an autonomous driving program, probably at least 10  or even 20 years ahead of when they otherwise would have if Elon Musk had not appeared on the scene.

The long term impact of Tesla will most probably mean that climate change is kept to the most optimistic levels forecast in the Paris climate agreement, and Musk will probably go down  in history as the man who saved our planet.
