  1. Hi Im moving to Melbourne in the next few weeks and may even have a job interview sorted for when I get there with a company called ALCOIL but I could really do with some advice on how hard it is to acquire my ROOF plumbing licence. I've been sheeting for 9 years here in the UK and I presume it is very similar type of work in Australia but could really do with a chat with any UK SHEETERS that have made the move and got there ROOF plumbing licence. Just some basic questions on what they look for and how hard it is to get licenced as a ROOF plumber in Oz. Il be forever grateful for any advice, please message me if you fit the bill. thanks Mark:wacko:

    Mating snakes wreck Cairns club roof

    A seven metre female python and her harem of male snakes are literally bringing the roof down at a Cairns sports club. Six scrub pythons measuring at least 3.5m and weighing up to 50kg are fighting over one female in the roof of the Hekili Outrigger Canoe Club at Yorkeys Knob. The amorous males have dislodged the ceiling boards in their pursuit of the female python, which club members have dubbed 'Nagini' after the giant snake in the Harry Potter series. Club coach Sue Lockwood said the roof was replaced just three months ago after it was damaged in Cyclone Yasi. 'The whole board underneath the eaves has basically popped open and now they're entering and exiting through that hole. When we're inside the shed we can hear them moving around,' she told AAP. 'We've only just had our ceiling replaced because it caved in when Cyclone Yasi hit us. 'It was pretty well much a mess for a long time, it's all just been replaced and now the snakes are breaking the roof.' A snake catcher has removed two of the males but the others are proving elusive, Ms Lockwood said. 'He can see where they're going but he just can't get in there so we have to wait until they come out.' She says bite marks found on one of the captured pythons show they have been fighting over Nagini. It's not the first time snakes have used the club's roof as a mating ground but this time around the males are bigger and there is more of them, she said. Some club members are unsettled but Ms Lockwood says the snakes are mostly harmless and only bite when startled. 'The irony of it is is that we paddle canoes in croc-infested waters and we have marine stingers for six months of the year, and we have tiger sharks and bull sharks in the bay where we paddle, and big huge saltwater crocodiles and yet everyone is scared of a little snake,' she said.

    "Tin" roof and rain - don't laugh!!!

    We are just going through the purchase of our first house in Oz (very exciting). Both fell in love with it as soon as we walked through the door, but there's just one problem........it has a "tin" roof, as I call them! The rental we have been living in had tiles so never lived in a house with one of these roofs, but I've heard really bad stories about them when the rains come - apparently the noise is soooo bad. I'm getting a bit paranoid about the move now, I know it sounds silly, but friends have told me their kids have had trouble sleeping because of the noise, you have to turn the tv right up etc etc. I'm not a great sleeper at the best of times and I'm now getting worried that, in every other way I have found my own place, but I'm gonna be too knackered to enjoy it!!!! Is there anyway of deadening the noise, other than filling the whole roof space with insulation, or re-tiling LOL - is it really as bad as I'm being told..???????:confused:
  9. Hi, We've just bought our first house and are trying to suss out the minefield of different types of roof insulation. Well you have batts (pink, polyester, fibreglass, earthwool) or ecofoil and there are probably some more that we haven't come across. Anyone know from experience which is better?? Thanks Wendy
  10. Hi All, We have been here 3 weeks now and the holiday time is over and its time to start looking for work. Does anyone know of any roof tiling jobs around the Gold Coast area? Thanks Damon

    Roof Tiling

    We have been here on Sunshine Coast 7 Months and loving it. Is there any roof tilers out there that can offer any advice my husband is learning metal roofing at the moment Thanks Natalie
  20. Hello, (deep breath, and.......) I have been in contact with Silver Trowel (perth) and they fly back and forth to UK assessing roofers (and other trades) with the ultimate goal of getting an AQFIII for prior recognition of skills. Brilliant I thought, then I contacted thinkingaustralia.com ( agents) and they told me that all these companies are jumping on the band waggon to get our money, and are a waste of money. First I thought, rubbish, but then Im thinking, I still need to use them as an agent, regardless. So why so adament it is rubbish? Is she unaware of Pathway E? Is this new? Silver Trowel cost around £2200K, and if this gives me an AQFIII, but TRA dont accept it, whats the point? As anyone got their AQFIII who has been granted their VISA? Or at least been accepted by TRA? Im Pee'd off with all the stress!!! It was expensive enough, but now for the AQF's aswell thats more cash!! As long as it gets me in its well spent. I wanted to get the ball rolling before 1st Sept, as I would expect there to be a flood of applications. Anyway, look forward to posts.... Mark & Family.:nah:
  21. i have just received an email from company for assesment on roof tiling for an aqf 3 on wed the 4th june , any roofer sat this yet on site assesment anyone tell me what they are specific on cheers jim

    HELP Desperatley Needed. My husband has his own business here in the uk fitting fascias, guttering, cladding and some roof work and we are desperatly trying to find out the requirements in Oz so that we can emigrate. We have been on the ABS website to find out some details of what is expected under 4431-17 Roof plumbing.

Can anyone suggest or even tell us what is expected ? We need this information asap as we want to get the ball rolling straight away. Any information would be greatly received.:err:
