Do you need a Bathtub?

bath with viewBathtubs are back in fashion! Did they ever leave that’s what I want to know. Here we will be looking at some media and articles about picking the right bathtubs. These are all on behalf of a plumber in Geelong that is a specialist is baths. They deal with retro tubs as well as brand new high featured baths that have all the bells and whistles.

You can have a quick look at the Pinterest page with a bit of their work.

So how do you pick a bathtub?

The first thing to do is to come up with the right size your tub should be. If you are building you can talk to your builder about a designated area that will be for the bath. If you are adding or doing a renovation specifically for a tub you can pick your tub and make the room to fit. Make sure that the tub is the right size for your height and the amount of people you may want in it.

Next, you will need to consider which kind of features you’d just like your tub to have. Perhaps you need handles, or you want some spa features. Maybe you require a walk-in tub, the skys the limit these days with tubs with amazing features on the market at the moment. Whatever your must haves are you need to have them into mind when you are picking your tub.

The design of the tub also matters. However, you should be aware that you might not be able to pick just any shape you want, as your tub should go with its designated space in your bathroom. You might not actually be able to pick just any old shape that you want, as your tub should fit in its designated space in your bathroom.

The old style cast iron tubs still look awesome, but they can be a pain to manage, transport and install. Bathtubs of modern materials such as fiberglass are far lighter and because they are lightweight and flexible they can be a lot easier to work with and install.

Whatever it is you decide to choose make sure you get a good professional plumber to handle the installation for you.

Roof safety guide

Your home’s roof plays an important role in keeping your family and the contents within safe and well protected from the elements. A compromised roof can weigh heavily on your mind as well as your pocket in terms of the possible damage it can inflict.

Keeping your roof well maintained can help prevent unnecessary damage and the associated repair costs, while also giving you peace of mind.

If you intend to work on your home’s roof, be sure to follow the safety tips outlined below to avoid any serious accidents or injuries.

Avoid Working On A Wet Roof !!!

The first safety tip when it comes to working on a roof is to never work on a wet roof surface. Before you even get your gear out, make sure that you choose to work on the roof on a dry day. This is because any wetness on the roof surface increases the risk of slippage. Furthermore, any wet leaves on the roof also pose an elevated risk of slippage.

It is also worth mentioning that you should not work on the roof on a windy day. A sudden gust of wind can be devastating as well.

Safe Ladder Use

The ladder is one of the most important tools used in roof maintenance work. Choosing the right ladder and using it properly will help make the entire job much safer. Although using a ladder seems simple and easy, it is nothing but.

It’s important that you take the time to ensure that every part of the ladder’s structure is strong enough to hold your weight as well as the weight of any tools you might have to carry up onto the roof.

Proper use of a ladder involves properly setting it up to ensure that it does not slip from under you. Furthermore, you should avoid placing tools on the ladder steps as they may fall on you, or someone else. You can use a tool tray designed to be fixed on the ladder instead.

Get The Right Gear

Before getting on the ladder, and climbing up to the roof, it is important that you have the right safety gear for the work at hand. Wearing a pair of safety boots, designed to prevent slippage on the roof surface, and a helmet should be common sense. Furthermore, you should have a safety harness designed for use at your roof’s height.

With the above tips in mind, you will have a much safer time cleaning or fixing your roof. If you are not comfortable doing the job yourself seek help from a professional roof restoration company.

Roof Ventilation Explained

Roof Restoration

If you’re like most home owners, and love and cherish your home, you might like to read on. This article is about roof ventilation which many people tend to overlook. It seems that a lot of people are uneducated or are unaware about roof ventilation, not even realising such a thing exists.

Information in this article has been kindly provided by Roof Restoration Sutherland Shire

Roof ventilation refers to the process of simply removing air (particularly hot air) from the roof cavity, i.e. the space between your roof surface and the ceiling. Normally this space is quite closed off and the roof surface itself acts as a heat conductor thus heating the air in the cavity.

As mentioned, many people are unaware that such a thing as roof ventilation even exists. However you might be impressed to learn that it is a relatively easy and affordable way to cut down on your energy costs. In addition to cutting down on energy costs, roof ventilation can actually add life to your roof prolonging any need for expensive roof restorations or roof replacements.

For those in the Sutherland Shire, a roof restoration company such as Roof Restoration Sutherland Shire can be of great assistance in assessing your ventilation needs and providing a solution for you which both meets the requirements of the building and your budget. If you are looking at purchasing a new home, restoring or replacing your roof, or building a brand new home, professional advise can be very valuable.

Commonly in Australia, there are two types of roof ventilation that work in conjunction with each other. The first method refers to extraction and this can be achieved either mechanically or naturally by installing ridge cap vents. The mechanical method involves the very well known Aussie “whirlybird” which is installed on the roof and is wind driven to extract the hot air from the air roof cavity. This is also known as an exhaust method.

To replace the hot air which has been exhausted, cool or outside air must be allowed into the cavity. This is achieved by placing air vents around the eaves to allow cool air in to replace the hot air which has been exhausted.

So in summary, extraction units known as whirlybirds or ridgecap ventilators will allow hot air to escape and vents placed around the eaves will allow the hot air to be replaced with the cooler air from outside. Please note that this doesn’t mean anything is being cooled – it’s just that the hot air temperature is being brought down closer to the ambient temperature of the outside air.

A well ventilated roof can save you money in the long term from helping to reduce energy costs when trying to cool down your home. As you have learnt, it is a relatively simple installation process to fit out your roof with an efficient ventilation system.

Roofing Blogs

Here we are going to take a look at an example of a WordPress site about Roof Restoration. This is part of a social media campaign that is for a roofing company based in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne in Australia. They are using a variety of platforms to promote their services but it seems that WordPress is the favorite. Here is a screenshot of the basic layout of the blog style page:

Although this is a very simple site with minimal features it highlights and main services of the business. These include:

  • Roof restoration
  • Roof repairs
  • Reroof

Although this particular blog is very light on actual content it does convey the main messages of the company. It also has some images of actual jobs completed which in my opinion in this particular circumstance is worth 1000 words. This site is being used in conjunction with a wide range of other social media platforms as well as the companies official websites that has been optimized for on-page SEO.

All About PewDiePie Tuber Simulator

PewDiePie Tuber SimulatorOne of our associates decided to build a website for a bit of fun and this post takes a look at the website to see how it is performing.

For those who don’t know, and I’m in that category, PewDiePie Tuber Simulator is a game built by Outerminds with PewDiePie based on the success of PewDiePie’s YouTube popularity. PewDiePie is, if not the most, a very popular YouTube star. He has built his success by reviewing games and now he is producing his own.

As of October 2016, PewDiePie took claim to the most “subscribed to” user on YouTube with over 13.5 billion video views. That’s incredible. He’s basically one of the biggest internet stars in the world (if you’re in those interests!). Based on his popularity, what could be a better marketing ploy than creating a game about his success – Tuber Simulator.

PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator game is a simulation game about becoming a YouTube star, just like PewDiePie of course, and gives the common person like you and I an opportunity to experience similar success. The objective of the game is to become YouTube’s biggest hit, even overtaking PewDiePie. This is achieved by making videos in the game with the goal of getting as many views and subscribers as possible. There are many different ways to achieve this including the games’ own currency called “Bux”. There are lots of hidden gems in the game and there are tactics that can be employed to help ones success.

Our friend’s website, is dedicated to writing informative articles about the game. It provides hints and tips on how to get started; the site being for beginners and advanced users alike. The site is modest and the articles are written simply so that the reader can easily get the information they are after. There is nothing complex about this site – navigation is very easy and the site is not overly populated with fancy graphics and pictures.

Once or twice a week a new blog post is added to the site and discusses the latest gameplay and features. Outerminds occasionally push out updates to the game and it’s good to know what the latest updates have install for the player.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this game when released hit the top of charts within hours. The game is available for both Android and iOS devices. Within 3 weeks of release last October (2016), the game had seen over 5 million installs. It has a following within it’s niche and is very popular with the youngsters.

The website also provides information about where to get the game, download information and in-app purchases. It features a FAQ page that gives enthusiasts a quick option to get information they are searching for. Also the site provides a Contact Us page which gives visitors an option to send in any questions about the game they might have.

Lots of game screenshots are included with each blog post that help guide the visitor in their quest for success. The site is also complimented with social media sites such as a Facebook page, and a Google+ page.

I had never heard of PewDiePie and once I mentioned him to my 14 year old son, he had no trouble in enlightening me on this very popular YouTube star. You learn something new everyday.
