Advice

Good Advice for all, and with all the good advice we could all live easier and we will all be happier because every waking moment of our lives will not revolve around around a pcr.


1 - Stop creating new problems by negligence that results in mortgagee neglect.

2 - Stop finding these recalled dehumidifiers and installing them in houses, we should all aready know they are a fire hazard by now.

3- If your going to tarp a roof, learn how to tarp a roof. ( most roof problems can be repaired within the allowable.

4- Do not leave the well on and unplug the sump pumps in these houses

5 - LEAVE THE SUMP PUMPS PLUGGED IN AT THESE HOUSES THATS WHY THEY ARE THERE, AND THE POWER HAS BEEN RESTORED TO RUN THEM.

6 - Remove all the debris not just what you feel like

7 - Stop tarping roofs that do not need to be tarped

8 - Drain the water heater

9 - Drain the plumbing systems

10 - Use your weedwhips as you are supposed to so that we are not constantly spending extra time bringing it down to size.

11 - Learn how to install locks so the doors don't pop open.

12 - Bolt boarding requires 4 carriage bolts & 2 2x4s

13 - Boarding a door requires hinges so we can get back in

14 - Use common sense

15 - Dont make horrible bids so that a 2nd bid requires a game of wheres waldo

16 - Lock the door when you leave

17 - Competition - blah just do your work right and you will get more

18 - Don't use the toilets

19 - Learn how to hookup the drainage hose to the dehumidifier - Its really not that hard

20 - Could keep going but I have had enough. Get the point add if you want.

Stop hiding stuff in the attic

Cut the ENTIRE yard...PLEASE!

The wooded area behind the house is not your dump

Part of a lock change is making sure the striker plate is in the right spot to hold the latch

Replacing the rotten or missing decking is part of a roof repair

Tarps should go all the way to the nearest peak

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done . . ..things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.

The dehumidifiers were about 75% of them built before 2013. There were notices posted all over menards, home depot, lowes. Five bros, Lps sent out memos about them for sure. Five bros instructions were to unplug the machines. I brought this up because I have been seeing crazy things such as a dehumidifier I marked off on dispearing from a house one week and then reappearing in house following weeks like its a fresh install. The units had not been sold for a few years.

Why it happens and they continue to get away with it, my assumption is ass kissing and probably a whole lot of it. Unlike most who are all talk I stand true to myself and mine, not a sell out. I would rather take my charge backs and at cost work orders then do the typical industry routine of crying and throwing fits.

Honestly have found that at least 50% of contractors in this industry cannot take it like a man, a good percentage are a lott like a toddler - as in crying and throwing fits - "ah I don't get paid enough, people like MKT ruin everything because they come in and do their job right, and so on"

Hey be careful because all you are doing is contradicting yourself here. Your saying that if you are going to complain don't blame anybody else. But at the same time you are complaining and blaming everybody else. If some one is doing $10 lock changes its only a matter of time until they wash out or move on to bigger and better things. - You know the reason everyone complains so much is due to the fact that negativity breeds negativity.

Positive advice

& my original post is aimed towards guiding people who are probably making $10 per lock change to learn - learning is key regardless of what you are doing. Just because this type of work is not the most prestigious does not mean there is not plenty to learn.
