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.

So this is somewhat embarrassing. I have never had my Chimney Cleaned since we bought our house.
I decided this was the year.
Here are a few reason why you should have your Chimney Cleaned Yearly
Remove built-up creosote
Check for cracks
Built up Creosote forms a layer on the interior of the chimney. Over time, this can build up and restrict the flow. Worse, the Creosote can catch fire, resulting in intense heat that can spread and potentially catch your home on fire. Not Good.
So, I called Chuck First Chimney Sweep. He used to own the Fireplace shop by the 49rs Tavern on PCH and Bellflower.
Chuck rolled up to the house on his bicycle with all his equipment. It was a total Mary Poppins Experience. Chuck was super nice, did a great job and left everything spotless
