We were heading up to a steel roofing Melbourne job a couple of weeks ago, and a few of the local radio boys were hosting an amusing discussion prompted by an interview with a chimney sweep. Just like us, the chimney sweep spends most of his days up on people’s roofs. He cleans and repairs chimneys, and we spend most of our days cleaning, repairing and replacing steel roofing Melbourne.
The sweep said that he especially loved his job because a sweep ‘never sees a dull day at work’ and every day is different. He then talked about some of the things he’d found in chimneys – a gun and a chicken.
Clearly the interview made an impression on all of us, because we were all still chatting about it after work. Roofing and guttering tilers also never have a dull day and it got us all thinking of the different things seen on steel roofing Melbourne. Of course, tilers talk can be a little exaggerated, but here’s a few of the things we’ve found, or heard other roofing tilers have found.
Of course Melbourne’s leafy suburbs are renowned for having a thriving population of foxes, and one of our young apprentices remembered reading a story in the Mount Waverly Leader. We googled the story on our smartphones and this pic is what we found. The woman who took the photo, Mrs Millan, said the foxes noticed her, and then calmly just kept walking across the roof of a neighbour’s roof.
Then the same apprentice told us about a photo that was doing the rounds on Facebook not so long ago. It’s a pretty cute little picture, not sure where it’s from, but it’s worth a google image search. Imagine getting up to check your steel roofing Melbourne and finding all these funny little faces staring down at you.
Now when you’ve been in the roofing and guttering trade as long as I have, you see lots of cats, the odd dead magpie or fried possum, and once every so often a snake or two. The cat on the right is one photo I did manage to take. He’s a little camouflaged amongst those tiles, but you can still see the cheeky tabby clearly enough.
Funnily enough, a couple of mornings after the chimney sweep interview, The Project were discussing all the bits and pieces that have been found by a Tasmanian couple in their roof; old work boots, hats, children’s shoes, and toys. And the ones we roofing and guttering tilers really wouldn’t like to find – mummified cats that were purposely locked in the roof alive!! Please excuse my gruesome pic. But, how would you feel finding one of those on Halloween!
