Gale Force Roofing

Do you really need a reason to stay off the roof on a windy day? Winds of 50 mph can lift shingles but work should stop well before that level. Winds above 23 mph are considered too dangerous for working at height. A sudden gust could actually lift you or send one of your workers […]

Flying, Crawling & Munching

It’s spring and the phones at pest control companies are ringing night and day as the seasonal warmth spreads north. One customer is finding small piles of sawdust and seeing large black ants; another complains of flying insects in the basement; and a third was investigating noises in the attic and came face to face […]

Often, when we take on something new, we say we’re trying to get our arms around it. It’s a metaphor for learning a new skill but also for acceptance of the task ahead. Some projects come easily, but others, perhaps those with a bigger learning curve, tend to get put off. Adopting new technologies for […]

The Scariest Thing of All

They’re appearing all over these days. Zombies, skeletons ten feet high, witches on brooms, and a strange orange glow can be seen around many homes and businesses.
