Well the permit is only a one-time fee per project and can be reduced by doing everything at once, but that’s one of the ways they get by without income tax. I guess another is tickets because my realtor said it cost him$2600 for a speeding ticket.
The copper stealing is everywhere and the only way to stop that is to throw all the owners of Salvage Company’s in jail because they are the biggest problem. As long as they are paying for the stuff, the criminals are going to continue to steal it.
I don’t mind living in a box because its less maintenance cheaper to heat and cool, plus I don’t have to deal with as many roof problems. I can replace a straight composition roof myself and there is no way I can fix a tile roof with valleys and dormer’s all over the place.
Anyway I don’t care about looks only the practical side as long as it’s clean. I just don’t want to deal with mold, dry rot or any of the other problem cause by custom roof designs. My wife thinks differently and likes the custom look, but I just don't see the point. Shes either in the kitchen, siting in front of the TV or asleep in the bedroom. I'm usually in the garage, out in the yard, in front of the computer, or asleep so I just don't care about looks.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
