    Looks good Andy. Have you considered caulking between the table board and the side trim? If fish guts get between there. .. it's going to smell reaaally bad...

    I've got 2 rolls of this arriving tomorrow: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CI6LCYW/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I hired a Mexican (Josh(Silencer7)) to help me install it on Saturday morning and will have enough left over to do the garage on a rainy day later on...

    How are you planning to adhere that to the roof? Just staple it to the rafters?

    Supposed to do stuff in the winter time. Our attic is huge, would need a ladder to access the high points.

    That should go up pretty fast then.

    Wasn't sure if it was that style or the kind that you adhere to the decking material. My roof is built with TechShield Radiant Barrier and it is just a backing on the wood. I think that barrier like you are using would be better since it provided that layer of air between the decking and itself, allowing heat to rise up out of it. Do you have ridge vents?

    Yeah my new attic is probably 15' above the ceiling level.. no way my ass would want to haul a ladder up there!

    Squirrel cages that may be replaced with solar fans if they don't keep up.

    I'll get ridge vents after the hurricane replaces my roof

    Our last home went through a hail storm and I had my roof replaced. Guy who did it charged me just for materials to add in ridge vents ($120 or so IIRC). Money well spent. Energy bill dropped about 25% the next month.

    Or just get a new house after the hurricane drops some trees down on you. Did your house lose any shingles during Ike?

    tx_shooter Looking for my missing 10mm socket. Staff Member

    I have the same type of radiant barrier on my roof and I'm looking at putting in an air gap radiant barrier also. I have been in my attic during the summer and it is hotter than any standing building has a right to be.

    Its very shiny, however with all those titty sprinkles it has good traction. I went over there about 30 minutes ago and its already hard enough to walk on. I went out on it barefoot and the sprinkles gave pretty good traction. I'm sure that since they are on top that some will wear down and break off over time. I had 10.5 pounds of sprinkles, I used about 5 and then went back and threw the rest in the air like a ticker tape parade. So some will not stick because it was already setting up. But most did. I can always bury them in a coat of clear, but thats $900 I really don't want to spend.

    You can see the flakes embedded in the epoxy here
