What I'm Seeing Now

Dot Yer Drips!

I folks!  It's your old friend Billy Jays again!

This new product has me so excited I simply could not wait to tell you about it!

Every time I go to the State Fair or amusement park I am fascinated by the fun ice cream they call Dippin' Dots.  I love 'em!

What a fun way to eat ice cream!

Well, have you ever been upstairs and heard a steady drip, drip, dripping during a rain storm?  And you know it's your roof! 

What to do?

Of course Billy has a solution and I call the new product Dot Yer Drips!

Yes, with Dot Yer Drips! you can stop that drip, drip, dripping forever!

Do you remember Billy Puff?

Of course you do!  Well, Billy Puff! is one of my most popular products of all time!  It has replaced duct tape as the most-used and most must-have product ever!

Here's why!

You see a drip - Billy Puff! it!

You see a drip through a seam - Billy Puff! it!

You see dripping around any tubes - Billy Puff! it!

Billy Puff! will fill the entire hole!

But Billy, you might ask, that seems like a lot of work.  How can I possibly install so much Billy Puff! at one time?

I couldn't be happier that you asked!

With Billy Jays' new Doterator!

Yes, folks, my Doterator! is for big boys - it's battery powered and comes in a variety of colors!  You'll need two hands!

But Billy Jays, how will I know that what comes is the official Doterator! ?

Every Doterator! that comes will have Billy's Official and Approved Stamp of Certification!

Unless you see the Little Gold Man with the big caulk gun stamp on the Doterator! it is NOT Billy's Doterator!

Hey, call now!

And if you do call now, ask the specially-trained and bubbly Phone Superstar who answers for your special deal!

What's the special deal Billy?

Boy, you sure are asking all the right questions today! 

The special deal is that you don't only get one, you don't only get two, but if you ask you will get three cans of Billy Puff! with your order!

That's enough to apply Dot Yer Drips! to 736 roof drips and 143 seams!

Once you get the Doterator! in your hands you won't want to stop!  Your seams will teem with Billy Puff!  You'll nip your drips with Billy Puff!

You'll have so much fun you'll be up there in the attic longer than it would have taken to completely reshingle your roof and do it right, um, I mean, spend a lot of money unnecessarily!

And just ask the Phone Superstar to ship that order quick!

So Call Now!

And remember, just like with every order, you will get a free case of Lotsa Nuts!

When you feel like a snack eat Lotsa Nuts!

Because you are what you eat!

So, CALL NOW and all this will be on it's way!

And remember my disclaimer, you will have a powerful tool in your hands, so don't dot your eyes!

This is Billy Jays signing off!  Good doterating with Dot Yer Drips!

Fade to black ... please.

Good morning Jay,

I thought we were going to have ice cream!

Make yourself a great day.

Posted by Raymond E. Camp, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Greater Rochester (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) over 7 years ago

Good one! Looks like the can exploded and spattered all over the place...lol! I especially like the double barrel vent!

Posted by Fred Hernden, CMI, Albuquerque area Master Inspector (Superior Home Inspections - Greater Albuquerque Area) over 7 years ago

Hi Jay,

Would it be easier to "JUST FIX THE LEAKS"? Than go through all the trouble and mess of adding all the spray foam?

Was this a flipper home?

Have a great day in Bristow my friend.

Best, Clint McKie

 

Posted by Clint Mckie, Desert Sun Home, Comm. Inspection 1-575-706-5586 (Desert Sun Home, commercial Inspections) over 7 years ago

Raymond - Dot Yer Drips! is far more fun than ice cream.

Hey, there's a learning curve with every new product Fred.

Nope!  This is a house for sale Clint!  You should see the other side!  Another Billy Jays product coming soon to a blog near you.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Jay, doesn't do much good for keeping the water from under the shingles, but it sure keeps the rain out of the attic. You're a genius!!

Posted by Michael Setunsky, Your Commercial Real Estate Link to Northern VA over 7 years ago

Not me, Mike, but Billy sure is!  He pounces when he sees a good idea!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Billy Jay, I definitely need to order my own doterator today. What a great invention. No more drips, no more leaks, no more holes. What a great country!

Posted by Mike Cooper, Broker VA,WV, MD, Your Neighborhood Real Estate Sales Pro (Cornerstone Business Group Inc) over 7 years ago

Free enterprise is amazing Mike.  I will pass your comment on to Billy...

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Awesome doterating. The guy must have been to Billy's training school. 

Posted by James Quarello, Connecticut Home Inspector (JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC) over 7 years ago

Of course I can't be sure, but he is not conducting CEU classes for home inspectors Jim.  Eight hours!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

You made me chuckle this morning Billy, gotta get me one of those guns.

You're a big boy Tom, so you would qualify.  I think there's a weight restriction, or the ability to snatch a load overhead while in an attic.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago
This is really great Jay! And I love the beard.
Posted by Bill and MaryAnn Wagner, Jersey Shore and South Jersey Real Estate (Wagner Real Estate Group) over 7 years ago

Thanks Bill, but that's not my beard, it's Billy's!

Do you remember Billy Mays?

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

This is something a layman would be proud of and a professional would shun. BTW, it reminded me of when I was a kid over a friends house and my friend was telling her father on the phone in another state how she stopped an indoor dripping roof leak by putting Vaseline over the drip. She was so proud of the act too....

Posted by Richie Alan Naggar, agent & author (people first...then business Ran Right Realty ) over 7 years ago

And that worked great Richie - for a minute!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

jay, LOL. Another great Billy J post. There are some peanut companies in SE Va NE NC that will can nuts and put your label on them. I will buy some if you do some.

Posted by Tom Bailey (Margaret Rudd & Associates Inc.) over 7 years ago

Thanks Tom!  What a wonderful Christmas gift that would be!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Who said home improvement wasn't fun? With the Doterator, the fun never ends!

Posted by Suzanne Otto, Your Montgomery County PA home stager (Six Twenty Designs) over 7 years ago

Probably better than a video game Suzanne.  Call now!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Thanks for the laugh. Interesting way to solve or delay fixing a problem. Have used to spray foam to fill in some added plumbing pipes. Pretty easy.

Posted by Bill Reddington, Destin Florida Real Estate (Re/max By The Sea) over 7 years ago

What an inventive blog you have here!!! Thanks for lightening the day a little!

Posted by Marilyn Wier, Your League City & Surrounding Areas REALTOR! (RE/MAX Space Center) over 7 years ago

Good grief.  Looks like they were shooting bullets through this floor and patched them up.

Posted by Edward & Celia Maddox, EXPERIENCE & INTEGRITY - WE TAKE THE HIGH ROAD (The Celtic Connection Realty) over 7 years ago

You're welcome Bill.  There are some things that polyfoam is good for!

Thanks Marilyn.  Billy Jays has 41 products for sale here on AR, all as inventive as this one!  A link to the previous product is in this post.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Given the number of leaks that might be true E&C!  The next product Billy will sell was used on the other side of this roof!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Oh my goodness!! Thanks for the awesome post and laugh! I'm going to send this to an inspector friend of mine. I'm sure he'll get a big laugh out of this one!!

Posted by Emmary Simpson, Serving Las Cruces, NM (Las Cruces Homes and Land) over 7 years ago

What fun. The name is great as well, kind of rolls off your tongue doesn't it. Like the water off the roof once you doterate it.

Posted by Tanya Van Blake-Coleman, Improving the Quality of Your Life (Van Blake-Coleman Realty, St. Thomas/www.talk-to-Tanya.com) over 7 years ago

Emmary - I'm glad you enjoyed it!  I have fun with the Billy Jays posts (there are 42 of them!)

Tanya - the essence of marketing!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

How about we connect the dots game today?

Posted by Harry F. D'Elia III, Investor , Mentor, GRI, Radio, CIPS, REOs, ABR (RentVest) over 7 years ago

Wow, Harry.  When I do I think I see Elvis.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Jay -- thank you for once again sharing your space with Billy Jay and his fine products.  The doterator should help keep that wood moist so mold can grow more efficiently!  ;-)

Posted by Steven Cook (No Longer Processing Mortgages.) over 7 years ago

That's what Billy always says, Steven - one thing leads to another!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Oh my, what a deal! Now if only I could get up into my attic. The problem is... the hatch opening is only really big enough to stick your head up into. It is perfect for hiding all those empty bottles of booze you don't want the family to know you have been drinking, you can toss them into the "attic" and no one is the wiser. Of course you can hide the full ones up there too, so they really are within fairly easy reach. Can you ask Billy Jays if there is some sort of extension wand and mirror to see what you are doing in a case like mine? Because if there is... oh boy, I am ordering lots of this miracle stuff!!!!

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 7 years ago

You have an older house Andrea!  I deal with that problem all the time!  You need to employ one of my small, thin Boy Scouts.

But call now.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Jay,

I love your Boy Scout rental idea - I'm a little to claustrophobic to climb in any of those small spaces!!!  I can't wait till my hubby get's home so I can share your Doterator post with him!!!!  Cheers and thanks for the belly laugh!

Posted by Elise Harron, Rural Vacant Land and Development Specialist (Dirt Road Real Estate) over 7 years ago

Great Elise!  And I'm glad the belly laughed!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Little boy scout rentals... what a plan! I called and ordered me TONS, and the boy scouts too. THANKS! This Doterator is possibly the best thing since sliced bread.

You do know we had trees hit the roof this past year, more than one. This could have saved a bundle. But one never knows since I can't get up there to look from the inside out. I'm going to have those tiny scouts dot EVERYTHING that doesn't move. 

And if I am lucky, some of those bottles might fetch me some money on ebay...

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 7 years ago

No rental Andrea.  They do service projects for free.  You might be right about the bottles!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Morning Jay you do have a way with getting the message across without offending anyone.  I do enjoy Billy.

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) over 7 years ago

Just having fun James.  There will be another Billy Jays post regarding this same attic!

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Billy Jays, If you call now we include second tube of Dot-Yer-Drips for free ( just pay a small shipping and handling charge of $62.36).

Posted by Donald Hester, NCW Home Inspections, LLC (NCW Home Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Don - you may be a bit confused.  It isn't Billy who does the calling...

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 7 years ago

Jay -  after years in the making duct tape has finally met its match.

Posted by Eric Middleton, Professional Property Inspector (Closer Look Property Inspections Inc.) over 7 years ago

It's interesting how someone like Billy Jays can come out with Billy Puff! and completely supersede tradition Eric.
