Buy local timber to avoid trouble: it works best, looks great and lasts longer

rand4
Have you ever stood on a timber deck and been concerned for your safety? Following a spate of “deck disasters” a group of Queensland timber merchants are encouraging consumers to use locally grown and manufactured building materials instead of imported products of dubious quality and origin. The Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network says builders and DIYers often receive bad advice, being told a timber species is suitable for certain applications when it’s not and sometimes sold a dodgy product. Spokesperson for the Network Rod McInnes said Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network members sell fit for purpose and true to label timber products grown and processed in Queensland from legally sourced logs grown in well managed forests. “This timber meets our high Australian standards so you can be confident that it will deliver the best performance,” said Rod McInnes. “Using Queensland grown timber also removes any risk of not complying with the Federal Illegal Logging Prohibition Regulation that started in 2014,” he said “Consumers can rest assured that they’ve bought the right product for the job when the Accredited Queensland Timber Product logo is featured on the packaging.” Responding to a market need for practical advice all Accredited Queensland Timber Merchant Network staff receive training on the latest building regulations and technical aspects of timber application and use from Australia’s leading timber experts. “So you get the right product, the right a...

Rainwater Harvesting Tanks

In Australia drought and water conservation are of constant concern. We are a dry continent; in fact we’re the driest inhabited continent on Earth. Every drop of water is precious, and investing in rainwater harvesting is of benefit to both individual households and our nation as a whole. Rainwater harvesting simply means the collection of rainwater for re-use, instead of allowing it to run off into the ground. The rain water collected has a myriad of uses; gardening, irrigation, water features, livestock, washing, bathing and heating. With minimal treatment, rainwater can also be used as drinking water, and is just as safe as the water that comes out of your tap. Just as solar power provides free energy, rainwater harvesting provides free water. Not only will it reduce your utility bill, it increases the sustainability of our reservoir and groundwater supplies. Rainwater harvesting means that you can bypass water restrictions to some extent, using your own supply instead of a limited supply of main water. Not only is Australia a land of droughts, in many areas floods are a constant concern. Without rainwater harvesting, almost all flood water is wasted as it washes away and becomes contaminated. Not only does rainwater harvesting find use from this abundance of water, it reduces the burden on storm drains and other water safety measures. Domestically, the most common method of rainwater harvesting are roof catchment systems. Rain that falls on the roof is siphoned off via gu...

Benefits Of Microdermabrasion, Waxing and Spray Tanning In case you didn't know, your skin is your body's largest organ, at least by body cell count. Unfortunately, however, it is constantly exposed to a variety of environmental elements such as pollution, dust, sun rays, etc., every day. And such exposure can take a toll on anyone's skin regardless of their genetic or ethnic background. Therefore, in a bid to reduce the occurrence of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, 'crow's feet', acne scars, age spots and other skin disorders, dermatologists have come come up with special skin treatments geared towards protecting the skin from such undesired pigmentation. Here is a quick primer on that. Microdermabrasion, which is one the latest skin treatment techniques in the skin care niche, is a non-invasive, non-chemical procedure that utilizes a spray of microcrystals to get rid of the outermost skin layer. A layer that is typically composed of dry, dead skin. Consequently, after the procedure, the skin is left looking younger, glowing and healthier looking. In addition, microdermabrasion also promotes the growth of a new underlying skin layer with higher levels of elastin and collagen. Now, remember that collagen and elastin are two of the most important elements involved in maintaining a healthy and younger-looking skin. And for most people, elastin is usually at its peak in their early twenties before it starts to diminish steadily giving way to wrinkles and fine lines. As you may al...

Here is a quick primer on that. As you may already know, waxing in a beauty salon is a hair removal technique aimed at a making sure that the skin is left silky smooth and bumpless after shaving. Unlike using razors and other temporary hair removal techniques, waxing permanently removes unwanted hair without leaving an unsightly mess behind. In fact, after waxing you will no longer have to worry about razor burns or nursing a sore stubble. Besides, waxing works pretty well with almost all types of hair textures, types, and colors. On that note, scientists and skincare experts have also proven that if hair is waxed oftenly, the roots and follicles weaken with time leading to permanent hair loss or little regrowth with time. This, of course, can be a relief to many of us who abhor shaving on a weekly or daily basis. Furthermore, waxing doesn't just remove hair at the roots; it a...
