Gryphon Group ?

Any experiences with them ? They contacted me yesterday, price list is too low for me for preservation work but I told them I would be interested in bidding and working with the repair/rehab division

BTW....not really a new member to site, lost touch since site moved and re-upped to post this
Thanks for any input

We have had some bad experiences with them.Its all FAS tenant owned work and they still use the same blue book from 1910.

Preservation is MCS,FAS,NFR,MSI.

Slow pay

MKM, can you elaborate on bad experiences.... I'm not going to do the preservation stuff. Have you done repair work for them? They mention Repair scale -vs- bids in contract, and 30-45 day pay time. I'll suck it up on the 30-45 but 60-90 pay time aint happening. I'm stubborn enough to not do the work if they want to cut my bids down too low. I've grown accustomed over the last couple years to Wells fargo accepting my bids as is and paying in 2-3 weeks. looking into Gryphon to fill the gap while waiting for Wells properties to come back the end of April and the mowing season starts

Bids where always cut,and I am not sure if I ever received payment before 60 days.When we where there it was alot FAS tenant owned work.Tenants never home,wanted me to be on call 24-7.I left them 9 months ago and have filed loses on the 15k they still owe me.

Got a call from them disputing MKM's post. Had a nice conversation for about 20 min. As we know, some folks have bad experiences while others enjoy working with same companies. I got 2-3 negative reponses about them, both private and public, thats enough for me to move along and not bother with them. Maybe they're on the up and up, maybe not, but I don't have the time or $ to find out. Really was just looking to fill the gap while waiting for Wells fargo work to come back end of April. They had no work for me right now anyway.

It's nice to see this forum is working. Pay attention Gryphon Group, and any other companies out there who think a couple disgruntled contractors out there will never affect you. WE WILL!

Iíve already told you more than I know.
