Bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

RIGHT! More work for the same pay! I'm not a roofer and i don't get off the ground. Wonder what happens when a contractor falls through a crappy roof getting these pics????


"Hello everyone,

The results being submitted for safeguard orderís seem to be coming back incomplete and as a result, safeguard is requesting additional information or photos.

Allow me to clarify a few things so that we can get these orders closed out and prevent having to return to properties.


I have provided this work order as an example for you to follow for all safeguard work orders, be they estimates, inspections or approvals.

Provide the following:

1)Take interior and exterior photos (including roof pics) if damages are present please get on the roof to get photos of the damages, if no damage is present we must still get photos of the roof and not from the ground where we cannot see the condition. If a grass cut and lock change are needed take supporting photos (see example).

2)provide a bid for repairs with dimensions. (see example)

3) provide the short version checklist. (see example)

4)always call a rep prior to going and leaving a property so that they can give you an idea of what you are going to do or needs to be done.

5) if you speak to a safeguard contact from below, please note on your bid what they advised you to do.

6) take photos of the A/C unit, furnace, water heater, all appliances (if they are not present take photos of where they are missing) and attics."

The point is they are expecting a home inspection that in real market conditions would cost between $250-$350 for $25 bucks. They'll get pics from the ground and like it or they can move on to the next contractor and then come groveling to me when the hack screws something up......

We don't.

Safeguard also won't accept photos taken from the ladder. They also want the damage chalk marked before and after photos.

Mtmtnman is right. It is a $300 bill to complete work like that, and I don't pay a guy $25 out of that and expect text book results. It is ridiculous, but there are folks out there doing it.

If you have a GoPro cam you set it up to snap a pic every 10 seconds, put it on a pole and walk around the roof and have a chit load of pics

GoPros are great, they shoot good video and can set to take pics at timed intervals.
