Last Vendor: Didn't need to secure, property secured, already winterized...

This poor property was victim to a bunch of shady ass vendors. Basement door that was boarded they drilled holes in the top 2x4, put in the bolts and took pics then took the bolts out of the top and put them in the bottom 2x4. Then screwed the top board on.

Boarded front door by screwing into siding. This was an MCS property by the way. Then when I got it, on my W/O the last guy who was here on 4/13 this year said he didn't need to winterize it or secure as it was already secure. Not. Unless this all happened in 9 days and I really don't think it did.

All pipes ripped out. Every entrance was destroyed. The hole to the knob lock was so destroyed I couldn't even get a new knob on it. Ended up putting the lock box on the only handle left which was on the exterior siding glass door, the non-broken side. Was hoping to remove some debris, get a few things locked up but they just said change the 2 locks and bid everything else now.

First pic is the front door. Screwed into the siding.

Is all of the copper missing? How much do you need to replace?

No offense Zoly but you are so "green" I am finding a lot of your questions downright annoying.
Your playing "contractor", do your damn homework and learn the business.
Seriously....asking for plumbing estimates???? People like you straight pi$$ me off.

I'm out.

All of it is missing, not a single piece left anywhere. The lettering is working great, had someone call me to tell me a brake light was out

Why would I be offended by you being annoyed or pissed off?

If all of it is missing, bid extremely high on the job and hope you get the bid. What you are describing will take weeks to complete correctly. So, I would bid $4.00 a linear foot, and estimate high on the material, so say 5,000 linear feet (probably too much, but I'm not a plumber). Then I would add 25% for your vendor discount. So, I would bid $25,000. And that's just to replace the copper. You bid replacing drywall after the copper is in, and all the fixtures separately. Once again, my estimate may be high, but it's a starting point. Another suggestion is ask a plumber to give you an estimate.

Thanks, I've never done anything this large. Have done a few small pipes when they burst and that's it. Tried to call a plumber earlier today but they wanted an estimate fee that I don't think is going to happen. Property is in the mountains 3.5 hrs from any major city.

I think I'd be willing to give them a deeper discount if they fronted material cost. Just did a huge drywall replacement on a house and replacing all doors / stairs / etc. Cost us a ton of money and we still haven't seen the check for that yet but it's only been 23 days.
