Fix it for free please!

Good Morning,

Please be advised that the above work order has been issued for you to return to the property at your own expense to address the following:

REMOVE/TREAT BEHIND/REPLACE MOLDY SECTIONS OF DRYWALL CAUSED BY ROOF LEAK
BLEACH CLEAN KITCHEN CABINETS
BLEACH CLEAN BATHROOM CABINETS
ADDRESS ROOF REPAIRS ON MAIN DWELLING (ACTIVE ROOF LEAK)
ADDRESS ROOF REPAIRS ON FLAT ROOF (ACTIVE ROOF LEAK)
Your Company had been sent to the property for the initial secure work order (XXXX4752) which was performed 4/12/13. The PCR reported no damages at the property yet photos provided indicated ceiling/wall discoloration. Mold/mildew can also be seen under the kitchen sink area. There was only one photo provided showing the exterior of the roof. This photo was taken at ground level which does not provide a thorough review to indicate no roof damages at the property.

Damages at the property were not clearly identified/reported until work order XXXXX1547 which was completed 10/7/13. The photos show interior ceiling/call discoloration as well as mold/mildew on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets. There were only bids provided to address the mold on the cabinets. Photos provided of the roof indicate some loose shingles and interior photos show discoloration on the ceilings, but no bids provided to address.

The investor has now denied the bids to address the damages at the property as these conditions were not identified in a timely manner.

So who do I blame on this one the contractor that didn't fill out the PCR correctly or the updater who didn't fill out the online PCR correctly?

There is no one to back charge so I just do yet another job for free?

Don't you just love this business?

Well, the contractor who completed the initial should have reported the active roof leak if it was there. Sorry to hear about your predicament. It's a big game.

Screw that. Tell them that you aren't a HAAG certified roofing inspector and can't be held accountable as you aren't a professional roofer/roof inspector.

Now you know why im in the office every freaking day reviewing bids and condition pic's.

In a case like this if this was a contractor worth investing in i would buy the supply's and make him do the work for free. Make sure to send the email to him.

Nail the shingles down, slap some tar on the flat roof, paint the stains. Ive done a few like this, make sure to take during pics. Because its a "freebee" don't worry about the turn around time.Quality is not as important as showing work done.

Check list for up-loaders, anything that looks like mold let me look at it before is gets uploaded, same with missing hand rails, holes in foundations, roof debris, ceiling stains. pool gates. damaged floors.

One of my contractors miss read a work order to taped down vinyl floor for a trip hazard, he cuts the vinyl removes it, exposes the damaged wood floor. so he gets to replace the damaged floor because he didn't read the work order, at his own expense. i did cut his some slack on the turn around time tho. Sh*t for brains has been with me for 5 yrs.

They only learn when they have to clean up their own mess.

Contractor was fired long ago for being an idiot. He lives about 3 blocks from this property but can't afford to pay attention and would just screw it up again.

The uploader was fired sometime around when this was processed. She was HORRIBLE and I fired her for letting orders sit in her inbox and not uploading. i had checked her computer history and it was all facebook, and other crap. I fired her then installed a net nanny.

We no longer have all these issues so I just need to get through it. This just sucks because a couple of weeks ago I drylocked a whole basement on my own dime.

I have a couple of properties purchased to flip and have been doing them in my spare time. The thing is between the cash layout to purchase them and the cost of all the upgrades I'm becoming cash poor.

Dude..... Why the Heck would YOU do anything for free? Just tell the idiots to review their pictures and "WHY didn't they catch this on their review/audit AND where is the Inspectors Audit?".

I wouldn't touch this pile of crap. You treat with Bleach without removing the entire affected areas you are just setting yourself up for the future lawsuit or the next time that Idiot Service Company tells YOU the house has not passed the Clearance Test and "Complete for free".

Burn it AFTER YOU call the "former contractor" who lives 3 blocks away that HE HAS TO DO IT FOR FREE!!! They will question him first LOL just kidding.... kinda.....

BS
