8th Grade Homeschool Portfolio

My daughter has just completed her 8th grade portfolio review with Homeschool Global’s Family Advisor last week. After doing portfolio reviews for the past 8 years, I think I’ve seen it all but as I look at the project she did for this year, specifically this last quarter, I am amazed.

She was inspired by the Timeless TV series we watched as it is a time-traveling TV show that visits the different periods of time.

This is her output as she studied arts:

How to Select a Roofing Contractor


It is critical that you take care of your roof and repair it when you notice it is damaged. Otherwise you could have some very serious problems develop with your roof that will cost you a lot of money to fix. Any repairs that you need to make will need to be performed by a skilled roofing contractor. This will guarantee that the work is done correctly without any serious mistakes being made. How do you find a contractor who will be able to do this work for you? Here is some advice that you will be able to use to accomplish that goal.

1. You should never hire a roofing contractor without first seeing who the Better Business Bureau recommends.

The BBB has recommended literally thousands of skilled contractors to people over the past several decades. There are many contractors who are listed on the BBB site. You should take a look at the contractors that specialize in the type of work that you need to have performed. Read all of the info that is provided about these people. You should also make a note of the ratings that each of these people have been given. This will allow you to make an educated decision about who you should hire. Make sure the roofing contractor you hire will be able to perform emergency tarping Kissimmee FL.

2. Get the opinions of your coworkers and neighbors.

Do not be afraid to ask people you know for references for roofing contractors. This is one of the best ways that you will be able to find out about contractors that you never knew existed before. There is a good chance that some of the people you know have had some roofing work done in the past few years. Find out the name of the contractor they hired.

3. Verify that the contractor you want to hire has a license and insurance.

The contractor needs to be insured so any damage done to your home is covered. You need him to have a valid contractor’s license to ensure he knows what he is doing.
