Re: Vinyl siding SNAFU.



Plain white? Well, *there* is the problem. Had you wanted Mocha Frost or Peach Fizzle or Orange-Blossom Bubbles, in the faux Alligator Foot texture or faux Silk Pajama texture or whatever, they'd have had piles of the stuff. But Plain White? Oy Vey!!! You're lucky they still make it!

You did good, now make the roof either white or reflective and you'll be starting to get a foothold on the thing. When you mention 4" & 5" I hope you really mean DOUBLE 4 or 5. That is, TWO laps per panel. Run chalklines to keep everything level and true.

A green roof is great insulation year round. It's a nifty place to hang out. Deer have a tough time leaping onto a roof to eat your vegetables. You don't need additional reasons. You do need a strong enough roof and you don't have one.

Thats a good idea for roofs that were designed and built as a floor. If they are designed and built as a roof its probably not a good idea to load it up with extra weight like dirt, plants, etc. Also, I seem to recall working on largescale buildings with flatdeck roofs and deep foam insulation and the whole thing was so fragile that simply walking on it was prohibited and reinforced designated pathways were designed into the scheme for stuff like maintenance, etc.
