Lead Paint? Catch-up with Peers on how to do your Projects 5/28 6:30-8:30pm

Thought I was busy, until I spoke to some of you folks! Here's a few of our Projects:

#Finished one of two kitchens with some very nice JSI cabinets from Pete. Replacing window sills with either Azek from Home Depot ($8.25/LF:-0) or dried Pressure Treated (my brother cautioned us how the new wet stuff, dries out and leaves gaps:-(

#Setting up for 17 CSF of Architectural shingles, strip and replace. Someone suggested 6 nails per tab:-0 as long as the nails are perpendicular I'm good with 4. Some of the crew seem to be trying to set a record and banging those nails at a slight angle which will cut through the shingles and a high wind'll loosen them. Don't forget to check your air pressure AT the gun so the nails are also flush.

#Painting - we'll be using PaintShavers Pro 12Amp to strip the paint on 3 houses but we need a HEPA vacuum attached to it.

Tuesday's meeting Jerry will go through the Lead Paint removal laws and how he detects it with his X-ray gun.

#Salem now has an aggressive program to "Inspect" all their rentals every 3 years. It seems there are 1500 in the city complying but 3000 more are behind. We just finished one. The usual problems:

Replacement window won't stay open, another won't lock. Vanity hot water Temperature is 133F Sanitary code says 130F Max. Common area Lights and Smokes ARE on a separate House meter!!! Porch railing is loose, two steps are cracked. Prove the outside entrance light comes on for motion at night with videos/pictures of all these items when they're corrected.

#Working on stopping the Japanese Knotweed at one house. About 500 "plants" grew 5' in 3 weeks! The Horticulturalist showed us how to end this Invasive species with Glyphosate, the technique is not what you'd think, I'll show you at the meeting Tuesday. Or we could just "harvest" the plants, roots and all, twice per Summer:-(

I'm starting to swim (or just dunk 55F) at the Beach instead of swimming at the Y each morning and getting ready for some fishing!

Anyway, My "busy" schedule is just about an average work load for some of you folks. It'll be good to catch up with you Tuesday at Pete's 47 Newbury Street (Route 1 North, jus before Sonic Carhop) Peabody, MA 01960

Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day, Remember to Honor those that made our life in this great Country possible.
