The Month Before Christmas

Posted by Flashings Direct on

At Flashings Direct we want to make sure that our customers know how much we value their businesses. Those of you who order your flashing, pipe boots and roofing supplies throughout the year mean the world to us. We would like you to say, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your business. Now, we know a lot of you out there are roofers and, in northern climates, tend to take some time off this time of year. We think that is great and wish you the best holiday season that anyone could ask for, after all our customers are some of the hardest working people out there and deserve a break. So make the best of your holiday with friends and family because we are working on some incredible things for after the holidays. Without further ado, we would like to give you a taste of Flashings Direct own, Night Before Christmas.

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, all the roofers were snoring, practically shaking the house.

The roofing was done for yet another season and each were dreaming of their coming vacation.

Each of them wishing for flashings galore ready to be delivered from the pipe boot super store.

Each roof they had touched still held its might, in the hopes that Santa would land there this night.

With the jingle of bells and the air of delight the sleigh could be heard just out of sight.

The landing was rough but the roof held tight, no doubt because of the roofers who slumbered that night.

Down the chimney he went and when all was just right, Santa took off in his sleigh leaving a disaster despite.

The roofers awoke to a terrifying sight and figured the reindeer much have cracked the vent pipe.

To Flashings Direct they sped with a fury, and received the parts they needed in a hurry.

The Metal Roof

Metal roofing it is the next big thing in roofing. It is durable, looks awesome, and what sounds better than a thunderstorm on a corrugated metal roof?

Flashings Direct, Filet Mignon in a Hot Dog World

At one point or another, we have all done it. The convenience store hot dog for lunch. They just look so good rotating over there on their little chrome bleachers, sweating like a politician at confession. Sticky, unrecognizable goo sticks to the rollers with every rotation, like gum stuck to a pair of flip flops. [...]

Happy Thanksgiving from Flashings Direct!

One week from today is Thanksgiving and that means many things in this great country of ours, turkey, stuffing and a mush of green beans and soup. It is highly unlikely that the Pilgrims had condensed soup when the first Thanksgiving spontaneously occurred but the Native Americans could have brought some made from wild mushrooms. [...]
