I want to share my new “Cool Roof” with you. This came about when we had a pinhole size leak in a roof vent that dripped into our Master Closet. After that DIY repair. I looked into roof coatings. I have an almost flat roof on the back half of my house. In the summer time, the family room below this roof is a cooker, even with 8″ of insulation, it is hot. This all brought me to the “Cool Roof”. This is an elastomeric coating in a super bright white, that reflects the sun and reduces heat.
If you need a coating, call Jack at ” Roofs by Jack 562-310-5788.

If you are like me, you have driven by Simms Pond on the corner of Loynes and PCH for years, and have only seen it through the fence.
Well, thanks to readers of this blog that asked if I knew anything about it, I called the man who does, Lenny Arkinstall of the Los Cerritos Wetlands Stewards to arrange a visit.
A very brief History:
Back in the 1950’s and 1960’s there was a Bait Shop at the corner of Loynes and PCH called Simms Bait and Tackle. hence the name Simms Pond. Then in 1977/78, developers wanted to build homes in what is now Del Lago and BayHarbour. As a condition for these developments, the California Coastal Commission required that Simms Pond be set aside for a Biological Reserve. In 2003 the Del Lago Community Association and the Bay Harbour HOA deeded the land to the city.
The pond is what they call a seasonal “vernal pool”, meaning it will be dry at sometime during the year. Lenny informed me that the pond is the healthiest it has ever been and that the drying of the pond by the drought this year has actually helped to air out and repair the soil.
