Submitted byAs a Washington State roofing company, one question that we are constantly asked at Olympia Constructions Roofing division by homeowners is, “What do shingle warranties really cover?” If you’ve ever read one of the shingle manufacturer warranties, it’s long and contains a lot of legal talk. You almost need to be an attorney to understand it! These limited warranties only offer protection against shingle defects. They offer no protection from workmanship errors, so if your roofer improperly installs the shingles and you start to have problems, these warranties don’t cover that. Since most homes these days have dimensional shingles on them, this is what we are going to focus on.Are defects that common?You’d be surprised. Even though it’s a small percentage, it does happen. We’ve seen cases where several roofs in a particular neighborhood were all installed from the same batch of shingles and deemed to be defective. So everyone on the block had a defect claim!“Are my shingles really covered for life?”Earlier this year, almost all of the shingle manufacturers upgraded their standard 30 year dimensional shingle to a Lifetime shingle. So does this mean your shingles are really covered 100% for life? Not if you read the fine print! Most of these Limited Lifetime Warranties only offer 100% coverage for 10 years, and then are prorated down over the shingle life. Manufacturers have different names for their 10 year period of 100% coverage…GAF calls it their “Smart Choice Protection Period”, CertainTeed calls it their “Surestart Protection Period”, Owens Corning calls it their “Tru PROtection Coverage Period”, and so on. So yes, you will have partial lifetime coverage, it just might be prorated down to a fraction of the cost to replace any defective shingles, if it happens after 10 years.“What is covered?”If the shingles on your roof are deemed to be defective, most of these warranties will only pay the cost of the replacement shingles (which is prorated down after 10 years) and they exclude any underlayment, metal work or flashing. They will pay for the labor to install the new shingles, but they will not pay for the labor to tear off the defective shingle or to dispose of them. Also, after the 10 year period, none of the labor will be covered. So as you can see, if you were to have a manufacturing defect in your shingles, you could still be on the hook for a majority of the cost! And an important thing to note is that most manufacturers will not honor the warranty if the attic is improperly ventilated, or the shingles are not fastened correctly. At Olympia Constructions Roofing Division, we always check and make sure your attic has proper ventilation. Our crews also undergo constant training in proper shingle installations.“How can I get 100% Coverage and better protection?”CertainTeed Certified shingle master contractors have enhanced warranties that can be offered by select contractors. Olympia Constructions Roofing division, a Washington State roofing contractor, is a CertainTeed Select Shingle Master Contractor, which only a small percent of all roofing contractors qualify for. We undergo extensive training, are adequately insured and have a proven track record for providing quality roofing services throughout Olympia and surrounding areas. As a Select Shingle Master Contractor, we can offer enhanced 3, 4, and 5 Star defect warrantees that also can cover workmanship for up to 25 years. This is considered a “bumper to bumper” warranty. This warranty offers you 100% protection for 50 years, non-prorated, as opposed to the 10 year 100% protection of a standard warranty. In addition, this warranty covers the cost of the entire roofing system, not just the shingle cost. The labor to tear off the roof is covered, unlike the typical warranty. To get this warranty, certain CertainTeed products have to be installed on the roof by a CertainTeed Certified Installer and the warranty must be registered with CertainTeed. This really should be a no-brainer because the additional cost of the Warranty is nominal and well worth it in the event of a shingle defect.Olympia Construction Inc.

Powered by Firework Indian skipper Virat Kohli commended the veteran wicket-keeper batsman in the press conference ahead of India’s first T20I against South Africa on Saturday saying, ‘he always thinks about Indian cricket and there is no replacement for experience.’ MS Dhoni who is on a sabbatical from cricket was heavily criticised for his performance in the World Cup for batting with a slow strike-rate.Advertisement “Experience is always going to matter whether you like it or not. Many players have proven in the past that age is just a number and even Dhoni has done that a lot in his career. One thing great about him is that he thinks for Indian cricket. When to stop playing cricket, is completely an individual decision. No one should give opinions regarding the matter,” Kohli said in the pre-match conference.Advertisement The 30-year-old earlier this week, posted a photo from the 2016 T20 World Cup match against Australia describing that Dhoni made him run like crazy in the match, on Instagram. However, netizens were quick to spread the rumour that the world cup winning captain might announce his retirement soon, which was ultimately rectified by Dhoni’s wife Sakshi who said, “it’s just rumours”.“I did not have anything on my mind, I was just sitting at home and I just uploaded the picture. It became news, it is a lesson for me about what I think about myself, the world does not necessarily see it that way. That game is very special, I have not openly talked about it so that is why I uploaded the picture but people took it otherwise,” Kohli confirmed.Advertisement Advertisement

SHREWSBURY – In celebration of the 350th anniversary of New Jersey and the upcoming 70th anniversary of the borough, the Shrewsbury Historical Society announced the publication of “The Story of Shrewsbury Revisited, 1965-2015” by Rick Geffken and Shrewsbury Mayor Donald Burden.The new publication refreshes “The Story of Shrewsbury” written by Richard Kraybill in 1964. It features a reprint of Kraybill’s work, along with an update of the previous 50 years in Shrewsbury’s history.Co-author Rick Geffken said, “This new book is the fascinating history of the second oldest town in Monmouth County, established in 1665. When originally founded, Shrewsbury comprised a huge area from the Navesink River, then south to Little Egg Harbor. It included all of what is today’s Ocean County. Seventy years ago, it became the borough, which it is today.“We’ve included a careful expansion of the subjects Kraybill wrote about, and added new research about the impact of the first European contacts with the Native American Lenape culture,” said Geffken.According to the author, the publication also mentions Shrewsbury’s historic Four Corners, the buildings on the corners of Broad Street and Sycamore Avenue, including Christ Church (1702), the Presbyterian Church (1735), Quaker Meeting House (1672), and the Allen House (late 1600s), known as Monmouth County’s most historic acre.The publication specifically discusses the constructor of Christ Church Episcopal, Rev. Samuel Cooke, and his biography. The work contains historic print, illustrations of maps, and more than 30 profiles and photographs of famous, prominent historical citizens.“It really is two books in one,” said Burden. He explained the current text incorporates a previous published work detailing the town’s history up to 1965; the second section brings Shrewsbury up to today and looks forward to its future. That section, penned by Burden and Geffken, is “an update” of the community as it made its way from a largely agricultural area to a commercial and residential site.The book also sheds light on the role of the Shrewsbury Friends, the Quakers, in aiding the abolition of slaver y in America, which many readers are unaware of. The oldest buildings in town are noted, and the uniqueness of the Shrewsbury community is appreciated and praised in this historic work, along with the recognition of the newer businesses and homes that have added to the town, keeping the balance.“Because Shrewsbury is such a classic town in a lot of the way it exists, the council of the town over the last 50 years has been very conscious about keeping the balance of the old colonial style of the town, and the modern additions,” said Geffken. “It’s important to recognize that they’ve done a good job.”He gave the example of the historic hub of Shrewsbury, the Four Corners, being so close to The Grove, a center for modernized businesses.Today, Burden observed, Shrewsbury has become a location populated by medical offices and facilities, retail shopping destinations, as well as having a number of higher density residential developments – both age restricted and not – over recent years.Geffken decided to join The Shrewsbury Historical Society, of which Burden is the resident, after the vibrancy of a group meeting he attended appealed to his interest in history. Burden informed him of Kraybill’s work that was coming up on being 50 years old, and asked Geffken to help him rewrite it. The rest was history.In doing that they included “stories of personalities,” that have become well known to locals and legendary local events, including some significant fires that are stilled talked about, Burden explained.Geffken revealed that rewriting the publication took a minimum of 20 hours a week, and a lot of research into archives and newspaper files. “One of the most important things we did in the book was reprint the 1964 version in its entirety, which was out of print and unavailable for a long time. It was the go-to story of the history of Shrewsbury from 1664 on. It was written by a committee, but they didn’t necessarily do a lot of historical research, so we wanted to update this with some commentary with some new historic sources,” said Geffken.Co-author Burden said, “We are gratified by the initial reaction to the book and its format. We’re happy people find our format agreeable and relevant.”Any history buffs that have an interest in the crucial past of Monmouth County and the importance and growth of the community of Shrewsbury, would find this book engaging. It can be purchased by sending payment to the Shrewsbury Historical Society, attention Donald Burden, President, at 419 Sycamore Ave., PO Box 333, Shrewsbury NJ, 07702. It is priced at $30 for the hard cover and $20 for the softcover, with a $5 shipping and handling fee.John Burton contributed to this story.
By John BurtonRED BANK – Local business owner Dean Ross continues to “Shine a Light” on cyclist safety for the community.On Monday, Ross joined other members of Monmouth Reform Temple, a Jewish Reform Congregation located in Tinton Falls, to install front and rear bicycle lights and offer safety helmets as part of his “Shine the Light” program.Since last May, Ross and his fellow congregants, working with representatives from St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church, 121 Bridge Ave., and with the assistance of local community activist David Prown, have been offering to install the battery-operated lights on bikes for anyone. It’s been largely members of the Hispanic community who have come by the church to take advantage of it.The group installed 16 light sets on bikes during the two-hour period Monday evening, despite the chilly and rainy weather which may have kept some away, Ross acknowledged.“We had a pretty good turnout,” despite the weather, Ross said.Ross and his group have conducted their Shine the Light program on five occasions since last May, installing lights on approximately 200 bikes.He believes this is making things a little safer for those who rely on bicycles for their primary means of transportation, likely sparing riders injuries or worse.Jay Wiesenfeld was one of the volunteers from Monmouth Reformed Temple who installed bike lights.Ross is a Lincroft resident who owns and operates Red Bank’s Doc Shoppe shoe store, 43 Broad St., and co-owns the Bagel Oven, 72 Monmouth St. He said he got the idea when he was driving along Highway 35 one evening and “I saw a bicycle go across me in the dark, no light,” dodging traffic. Subsequently he then noticed the number of cyclists riding along the busy Newman Springs Road, with people on bikes competing with speeding vehicles.A majority are Hispanic and many were riding home at night, working in local restaurants, often dressed in black clothing, as required for their jobs. And then, “The light bulb went off in my head,” with the idea, he remembered.Ross had about 75 lights available Monday evening. He has been covering the cost of the lights, buying them online, explaining the company provides a discount for them, given this is a charitable effort.Donated safety helmets are distributed for those who need them, Ross said, indicating they had about a dozen available on Monday.Ross ties this effort in with his temple’s Mitzvah Day efforts, where congregants participate in community service, and is coordinated with St. Anthony’s considerable social needs outreach efforts for the Hispanic and the larger community.The program is held to coincide with St. Anthony’s food pantry service, which the church conducts on Monday’s, according to Ross.“We have to address the helmets and safety things, the safety things,” for community members, Ross said.Arthur Fama, a St. Anthony’s deacon, spoke of the program’s clear benefits. “No question in my mind this is making things safer,” he said, noting when he leaves the church in the evening, “You can see the lights in the neighborhood.”Ross hopes to extend the program to Freehold and then possibly Long Branch, two communities with large Hispanic communities and many bike riders. The program will return to St. Anthony’s on June 6, from 5-7 p.m.“You know,” Ross said, mulling over his response to the question of why he undertook this effort, “we’re only on this earth for a short time and if I can help a few people…” he finished, leaving it open ended.
