Trimming bolts on board up?

Just received a work order note to return and trim the bolts on HUD boarding. I re read the HUD spec and could not find a requirement to do this.

Is this required in your area? Is it at the discretion of the PP company?

Was this a requirement in the workorder? If yes, then that's the terms you accepted. If no, then what ^he said.

I've seen a few orders where it states the bolts must be less than 2 inches sticking out. Most orders don't have anything though.

It depends on the company, Ason's always included in their work order, Five Brothers never did, HUD does ask no more than two inches exposed for safety.

It does depend on the company as NJERPP said, I know that if it is a realtor, bank, or investor direct that I'm working with who pays well, I always cut them short, and put caps on the ends of the bolts also, but those types of customers appreciate the effort and extra work put into the job. No way I'd do that for a national or regional.

To me it begs the question which is safer?

4 inches factory threads uncut,

or 1 inch with sharp edges from a hacksaw cut?

Obviously flush with the nut is best, but we all know what kind of "nutjobs" are out there.

Let me guess....you must take the full array of property condition photos while returning? Just a hunch.

They generally want full pictures on every visit. I am even seeing this stated on grass cuts. I always joke, "why I just put a new roof on, while I'm there"

Their answer is maybe we will get some work out of your pictures.

Your answer should be PAY me! The focus for all of us should be to get paid for every move we make on someone else's jobsite.
