Rooftop deck makeover

Written by Malcolm Kay

Flat rooftops can offer great opportunities for conversion into attractive entertaining or relaxing areas, but contemplating a vast expanse of drab concrete or asphalt and envisaging how to attack such a problem, can be a rather daunting prospect.

Two important points need to be considered atrepparttar outset. Firstly, any objects on a roof top which are not securely fixed, need to be of sufficient weight or size that they will not move or blow away in strong winds.

Secondly, if there is a waterproof membrane onrepparttar 145234 roof, extreme care must be taken thatrepparttar 145235 membrane is not punctured or damaged in any way.

The most important thing that then needs to be decided is what to install onrepparttar 145236 surface. If there’s a waterproof membrane, then it’s obviously not possible to lay conventional ceramic tiles. In that case, probablyrepparttar 145237 best option is to coverrepparttar 145238 area with interlocking wood deck tiles (see for example These tiles are typically available in 12” squares and are easily laid by just snappingrepparttar 145239 tiles together. Inbuilt connecting tabs onrepparttar 145240 integral plastic mesh base ensure each tile is locked securely torepparttar 145241 adjacent tile to form a continuous deck surface. The gaps betweenrepparttar 145242 wood slats andrepparttar 145243 plastic mesh base allow water to drain freely away and minimizerepparttar 145244 chance of strong winds liftingrepparttar 145245 tiles.

The Truth About Honda Pressure Washers

Written by Randall Madon

"What they don't tell you about Honda Pressure Washers"

I recently receivedrepparttar following e-mail regarding honda pressure washers:

"I was unaware Honda made pressure washers. I can get one locally now that I have seen your web page".

Thank You

My response:

Thank you for visiting our website. I would like to point out that HONDA "does not" manufacture pressure washers. Honda makes Engines, Autos, Motorcycles etc. When Pressure washers are referred to as Honda it's industry shorthand for "Honda Powered" which means you still need to considerrepparttar 145233 manufacturer.

We distributerepparttar 145234 "Pressure-Pro" line of pressure washers. Pressure-Pro is Floridas leading manufacturer of Pressure Washers.

Keep in mind that very little of a pressure washer is "manufactured", whatrepparttar 145235 majority of manufacturers really are is "component" assemblers. This is no bad thing as long as they use quality components and have large purchasing power to deliverrepparttar 145236 final product at a value forrepparttar 145237 consumer.

I recently received a flaming email from a woman lambasting me for selling Honda pressure washers. She told a story of how she and her husband had purchased a pressure washer from a local box store, she really didn't say which. At any rate, after using it 3 times overrepparttar 145238 course of a year it developed a serious problem withrepparttar 145239 pump.
