Roof 2K

How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.

William Faulkner

A nice first submission from Turf. Turf says…

I have driven past this one for years, and wonder if the sign has been left there as a joke. It’s at the intersection of Canning Highway and Stirling Highway, East Fremantle.I think it speaks for itself, the ROOFING 2000 building has a really rusty roof. You don’t see very many houses with a rusty roof these days, but the ROOFING 2000 building has one.

And 2000 sounds so futuristic doesn’t it? Thanks Turf?

    I like the thinking here. As long as you restore the patio roof and put in a really big frangipani, who gives a shit.

    +1000 points if your brick fence looks like it will collapse under slight duress.

    And its always good marketing sense to pay out for a sign and not include your phone number.

    Tho’ with a catchy name like Roofing 2000, it’s probably not necessary.

    Whats that little structure in a cage behind the sign? Must be dangerous if they’ve had to lock it up like that.

    Big R – lucky you. Roofing 2000 doesn’t need better advertising and they don’t have time to fix their own roof, they’re so busy you’d be fortunate to even get a quote out of them.

    Hallo. Long time lurker, here. I wish I could contribute more. But I feer you guys are a bit too knowledgeable for me.

    What’s your opinion on ROOFBARS? Or what I dubbed ROOFBARS, to be technically correct.

    Y’know. The garage roof. Bung on a waist high metal balustrade. Whack on an outside staircase. ROOFBAR!

    I have great memories of getting absolutely shetfaced on Sundays on my mate’s roofbar. Erm… but that doesn’t mean they’re not naff.

    There are a few rippers on Charles St / Wanneroo Rd out Yokine way. Sometimes I sit at the lights looking at Wanneroo Rd roofbars, fondly remembering my misspent yoof.

  12. They have got brand new signs. I assume from being horrified to see their place on TWOP. So another vanished worst. I couldn’t see if the roof is still rusty. Any East Freo worsters can tell me?

    The reason for the condition of the roof and house in general is due to it being historically listed so nothing on it can be altered at all unless many legal hoops are jumped through first plus restoration is expensive. You should see the shed out the back of the place, that is far worse!! The bricks in it are falling out due to a hundred years or weathering on the mortar/concrete between the bricks.
