Essential Roofing tips for summer

Roofing tips for the winter are simple and easy to follow but can save you a lot of hassle in the long run. One of the most important things that need to be checked before winter comes is the roof of your house. It is advisable to check all the shingles on your roof at least twice a year – once during the fall and once during the spring. The shingles need to be checked properly for any leaks and any signs of wear or damage.

Do not try to repair shingles by yourself as you can cause more damage to your roof than what it is worth. If you discover that there is any sign of damage, replace the damaged tiles immediately. You will end up spending more money if you leave them as they are. Once the entire roofing material has been replaced, use roofing tips for the … Read More

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the premiere episode of Home Improvement, and the show’s stars are marking the occasion with a fairly wonderful new project. Tim Allen and former co-star Richard Karn have reunited for a new reality show, and the pair are looking back at what it’s like to share the screen once again.

“All of us are real close,” Allen told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I still see Richard way too much, boy, way too much.”

“It just doesn’t feel like 30 years,” Karn added.

Allen and Karn spoke with ET on the set of their new workshop reality competition, Assembly Required, in which talented makers and DIYers from across the country compete head-to-head in at-home building competitions.

Tim Allen on How New History Show ‘Assembly Required’ Is Like a Real Version of ‘Tool Time’

What time is it? Well, it’s almost time for “Home Improvement” stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn to reunite for new History channel competition “Assembly Required,” a project that’s a perfect fit for two guys who hosted the fictional handyman show “Tool Time” for eight years.

But Allen says he “never even thought about” having Karn host this series, which he called “kind of a live version of ‘Tool Time.’” (Even though “Assembly Required” is not live, to be clear.)

“My only hesitation was I didn’t want to embarrass myself,” Allen told reporters during a virtual panel for “Assembly Required” at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Thursday, ahead of the show’s Tuesday, Feb. 23 premiere at 10/9c on the History channel.

Tim Allen and Richard Karn Say ‘Assembly Required’ Feels Like a Real-Life Version of ‘Tool Time’

Thirty years after their television debut together on the long-running ABC sitcom Home Improvement, Tim Allen and Richard Karn are reuniting on the History Channel’s all-new workshop reality competition, Assembly Required. For the co-stars, working on the series sometimes felt like the real-life version of Tool Town, the show-within-a-show co-hosted by Allen and Karn’s characters, Timothy “Tim” Taylor and Albert “Al” Borland.

At times, Assembly Required was like a “live version of Tool Town,” Karn said during the Television Critics Association’s Winter 2021 Press Tour, with Allen adding that the pair would sometimes revert back “exactly like we were in Tool Time. It’s an amazing extension of that relationship.”

On the 10-part reality series, Allen and Karn are joined by woodworking do-it-yourself YouTube star April Wilkerson as the “best and brightest makers from across the country” compete head-to-head in at-home building competitions. Each episode they
