I need to get the roof of my house replaced in the near future, and the sooner that happens, the better. I thought that I was just going to have new shingles put on the house, but I had someone come over to give me a quote, and they found out that the wood underneath the shingles is rotting, and pretty much all of the structural wood needs to be replaced. So I want to find contractors for roof replacement in Queens so I can go through this whole process of getting quotes again, except this time, I won’t be getting quotes for having new shingles put on my roof, but rather, I will be getting quotes for having the whole roof replaced.

I am not really sure how much more expensive it is going to be to get the whole roof replaced, versus just having new shingles put on a house. But I am sure that it is more expensive. I guess I will find out soon, since I am going to start calling around to get quotes from different contractors. I want to make sure that I find one that I feel confident in, in terms of the work that they are going to do.

I think that part of the reason that my roof is currently rotting and needs to be completely replaced, is that the last time I had work done to my roof, it was not done very well. I can’t really prove that, but I have a strong suspicion that is the case. It adds up in my head, and it would explain why there is so much water damage and rotten wood underneath the shingles of roof. I will be more careful in who I pick for the job this time around however.

It is certainly not what I would have dreamt of if I had been given my choice of a summer job. I was really hoping that I would be able to find the sort of job where there were lots of girls, in fact I started looking at jobs near Rockaway Beach and places like that. Instead I am working at a tree service in long island, although they do not let me climb up trees with a chainsaw. It is pretty difficult to do that and I am not really looking for the job either. Instead I am down on the ground and I do my best to make sure that nothing falls on my head. It is pretty simple really. The guys with the chainsaws make a really big mess and they need to have a person who is going to clean up after them. Continue reading Working on a Summer Job

I have an idea to promote the company and it is going to require a little work, but I think that it should work really well over the long term. Of course the products that we sell require installation and you have to do things to maintain some of them. It is not really that simple, but once you know how to do it there is not that much to it. I was thinking about finding inexpensive services for video production in Singapore and making a series of helpful how to video. It is not as though you need a real platform to distribute them in this age, you have youtube and a number of similar vehicles which you can use to get them out to the public.

My car has a leak in it somewhere, such that whenever it rains, water is getting into the car and soaking the floor on the front driver side. I have put some towels down there, but that is not an effective long-term solution. Besides, I can’t use the towels when the car is in use, because I do not want to risk them getting bunched up and stuck behind a pedal, which could prove quite dangerous. I am going to buy some new automotive weatherstrips to put around the doors of the car and hope that solves the problem. I haven’t been abel to identify the source of the leak though, so I don’t know if it is the weatherstrips for sure or not, but it is a good place to start in my quest to fix this issue.

Even if it turns out that the weatherstrips are not the source of my current leak problems, they probably need to be replaced anyway, because they have not held up very well over the years and are in pretty bad shape. They have dry rotted and are dry and cracking in lots of places. Continue reading Long Lasting Weatherstrips for Auto Use

I was sitting in my office on the top floor of the large building that I own, and I heard a loud clanking noise repeatedly. I walked around trying to figure out what it was, and then I heard the heater go out. Instantly, I felt a sense of dread. I have a lot of people who rent from me, and I knew immediately that hvac in NYC help would be what I would need to handle in the next few minutes. Not having to deal with it before, I wondered if it would be easy to get help.

There are a lot of landlords in my city who are not very attentive to their renter’s needs. I have always vowed to not be like that. And it can get rather rather cold here, so I really don’t want people waiting. Continue reading It’s Nice when Companies Take Your Help Requests Seriously

The dog treat industry continues to grow despite the amount of products that are available. The scare of the dog food from China that had melamine has made products made in the USA even more popular. Some companies are labeling their sources of ingredients and certifying them as being all-natural with very specific preservatives for shelf life. We had an idea for dog treats we were gong to sell locally, and all we needed was controlled vacuum packaging equipment to get started. We bought some used bakery equipment and leased the space it was in. The bakery was for human-grade products, and we had the space re-certified and licensed to sell human-grade food products.

We choose and use all human-grade ingredients that are also safe for canine consumption as a treat. We produce crunchy cookies that are certified and inspected to be fully suitable for human consumption but designed to be safe to eat by canines. It is the first treat of this kind that we know of. There is an extreme novelty of pet owners buying the treats and showing their friends and family that people can eat them too.

My kids are the people who got me to pay attention to where technology is going with businesses today. I run a hardware store that used to belong to my father. I spent many long hours there, and I just do not have a lot of time to pay attention to things but the most basic things when it comes to running it. At some point, it finally clicked and I understood the importance. That is when I got in touch with a Singapore app developer to get an app made for my business.

My kids had even tried to get me interested in a smartphone for years, but I always put it off. I made sure that both of my sons had them because their mother and I wanted to be able to get in touch with them at any given time.

When I moved to the coast, I didn’t imagine myself becoming a fisherman, but now that I cam, I can’t think of doing anything else. Being on the open water is exciting and dangerous at the same time. There are some times when the amount of fish that I catch is low, but most of the time I can haul in a pretty big load. I have a waterproof scale that I use to measure the weight of each fish that gets sold at the market. The bigger the fish, the higher the price it gets, and the more meat the customer gets.

I keep a record of the weight of the fish that I catch in a day. Continue reading A Fisherman’s Life for Me

Much of American’s infrastructure has been focused on the coastal boundaries of the nation which is not uncommon through most of the developed world. What is unique about the United States is the number of individuals still living in rural communities often deeply disconnected from basic utility services, including access to high speed Internet. Hughesnet Internet is a service provider able to reach out to those rural communities who have only experienced Sloth like Internet speeds offered only by dial up. This can come at a cost and is a hotly debated subject due to the prohibitive fee associated with connecting lines in a rural area.

I firmly believe that this should not come at any cost required to be paid by residents. The Internet has quickly grown to become one of the most necessary utilities that we’ve developed. Continue reading A Better Chance for Success

In my trusty old email inbox, the same one that never seems to block any advertisements or send them into the spam folder, left me a message that I should look at all of the positive Ewen Chia reviews and try my hand at doing some affiliate marketing work instead of working my fingers to the bone at a normal back breaking job. Like all of the other messages that I read from my inbox, this one got my attention, so I decided to check out these reviews to see if they were on the level. Of course, the reviews were positive and praised the work of Chia.

Reading more about affiliate marketing and how Chia used it caused me to see it in a different light. I was convinced that I could be doing affiliate marketing work from my home, rather than going into the office every day to copy papers and type long boring emails. Continue reading A Miracle Message of Wisdom

With Ewen Chia, an Internet Marketing Guru, leading the way for new business owners on the web to establish themselves I find that it’s becoming ever more important to stress the actual use of social media platforms as well as the need for a smart business model and not just an idea that hasn’t a plan behind it. It’s easy to get excited about a business idea; I’ve been there (I feel like I’m always there).While we want to rush out and start making social media profiles to give it some substance it’s also necessary to have a plan of any kind.

Having a plan for your business is the best method to define it. Continue reading A Tongue in Cheek Approach to Marketing
