I am in the process of getting approvals myself, on hindsight I would check the building inspector in your regional corp and see if he does them. I have a feeling they will pass through the process quickly.

Highly finished and tinted they work well in garages, rec rooms, storage rooms, etc. Trincity Mall uses finished, tinted concrete floors.

https://americanliterature.com/children ... ittle-pigs

Once upon a time there was an old mother pig who had three little pigs and not enough food to feed them. So when they were old enough, she sent them out into the world to seek their fortunes.

The first little pig was very lazy. He didn't want to work at all and he built his house out of straw. The second little pig worked a little bit harder but he was somewhat lazy too and he built his house out of sticks. Then, they sang and danced and played together the rest of the day.

The third little pig worked hard all day and built his house with bricks. It was a sturdy house complete with a fine fireplace and chimney. It looked like it could withstand the strongest winds.

The next day, a wolf happened to pass by the lane where the three little pigs lived; and he saw the straw house, and he smelled the pig inside. He thought the pig would make a mighty fine meal and his mouth began to water.

So he knocked on the door and said:

"Little pig! Little pig!
Let me in! Let me in!"
But the little pig saw the wolf's big paws through the keyhole, so he answered back:

"No! No! No!
Not by the hairs on my chinny chin chin!"
Then the wolf showed his teeth and said:

"Then I'll huff
and I'll puff
and I'll blow your house down."
So he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down! The wolf opened his jaws very wide and bit down as hard as he could, but the first little pig escaped and ran away to hide with the second little pig.

The wolf continued down the lane and he passed by the second house made of sticks; and he saw the house, and he smelled the pigs inside, and his mouth began to water as he thought about the fine dinner they would make.

So he knocked on the door and said:

"Little pigs! Little pigs!
Let me in! Let me in!"
But the little pigs saw the wolf's pointy ears through the keyhole, so they answered back:

"No! No! No!
Not by the hairs on our chinny chin chin!"
So the wolf showed his teeth and said:

"Then I'll huff
and I'll puff
and I'll blow your house down."
So he huffed and he puffed and he blew the house down! The wolf was greedy and he tried to catch both pigs at once, but he was too greedy and got neither! His big jaws clamped down on nothing but air and the two little pigs scrambled away as fast as their little hooves would carry them.

The wolf chased them down the lane he almost caught them. But they made it to the brick house and slammed the door closed before the wolf could catch them. The three little pigs they were very frightened, they knew the wolf wanted to eat them. And that was very, very true. The wolf hadn't eaten all day and he had worked up a large appetite chasing the pigs around and now he could smell all three of them inside and he knew that the three little pigs would make a lovely feast.



So the wolf knocked on the door and said:

"Little pigs! Little pigs!
Let me in! Let me in!"
But the little pigs saw the wolf's narrow eyes through the keyhole, so they answered back:

"No! No! No!
Not by the hairs on our chinny chin chin!"
So the wolf showed his teeth and said:

"Then I'll huff
and I'll puff
and I'll blow your house down."
Well! he huffed and he puffed. He puffed and he huffed. And he huffed, huffed, and he puffed, puffed; but he could not blow the house down. At last, he was so out of breath that he couldn't huff and he couldn't puff anymore. So he stopped to rest and thought a bit.

But this was too much. The wolf danced about with rage and swore he would come down the chimney and eat up the little pig for his supper. But while he was climbing on to the roof the little pig made up a blazing fire and put on a big pot full of water to boil. Then, just as the wolf was coming down the chimney, the little piggy off with the lid, and plump! in fell the wolf into the scalding water.

So the little piggy put on the cover again, boiled the wolf up, and the three little pigs ate him for supper.

then imps came and tax the lil pig and the lil pig who worked hard to build his house has no money to pay the taxes so he had to work harder , while his two lazy brother was out drinking and liming and living happily ever after

Where sells the best roofing sheets? The ones I have now on the roof from Union Steel getting mossy (dark colored buildup on the sheets) and causing them to corrode on a less than 6 year old roof.

Best roofing sheets is a myth. However what is not, is the time you spend researching local companies and their services. The TTBS ought to guide you on quality, if the problem you are having is a quality issue ...............

Cheap materials and fancy colours can fool you, so beware, as I am not getting good reviews about some of them.

Sheets sometimes get dark because there is not enough Zinc in the material, so bacteria, fungus, dust etc can cause this.

There are Products to kill these organism and pressure wash clean. If it did not come with a coating other than the zinc, you may have to protect by painting.

In time pass, a process called galvanising was used to bond the zinc unto the sheet, also electro dipping as they do with cars, etc. It would appear that companies are cutting corners on this protective layer and hence these issues.

Also the pitch of a roof, if below a certain angle will cause Sahara dust, smog from diesel, and other pollutant to settle on the roof and you will have the scenario you are describing

I wanted to follow up on my drawing plan that had left T&C POS since June 13th and I did not know where it was (Reg. Corp or Health). I am building in the Couva Reg Corp boundaries and took a chance and sent an email I found online to cttrccomms@gov.tt and got a response within a hour on a Friday afternoon (impressed). I had provided my T&C# and the lady provided the Couva Reg Corp internal number and confirmed that it was with Health. She also provided for County Medical Officer of Health office (636-3961 x4409) where I spoke to another lady who gave the Health internal number for the file and told me to call back on Wednesday, as that's when the Health Inspector can give feedback. Hope this is helpful to others.
