Winterization on extremely damaged house

Just got a wint 2 hours away today. We are going near this property to do a trashout, so we will be in area. First time we've done anything on this wint house, though, and the damage report in the system says(reported 1 month ago) "Broken windows and roof missing and generally falling in", cause is "owner neglect and tornado per neighbor". I can't imagine the point of winterizing a house that doesn't have a ROOF. Can't wait to see what this looks like.

Houses winterized 5 times in 3 years by 5 different companies (fill in your own numbers).
Houses gutted by fire unsafe to walk across floors/stairs
Houses vandalized with no plumbing left
Houses sold/under contract
Winterized while crew rehabbing with electric and heat on

All examples of work orders completed over and over again even after contacting the assett company.

I have had to wint quite a few tear downs for nationals. Have had teardowns direct with brokers though and didn't wint them. It's a National thing......................

Yeah we did our third initial secure on the same property since around April. Every time it switches hand they want it done again.

I quit feeling guilty for charging to recycle locks a long time ago.

Yeah. One of my guys called me today and said "Uhh.. I just secured this house a few weeks ago". I had to reassure him we didn't screw up and give him a duplicate order

I got over it a couple months in clear back in 09.

The old "F up on their part" routine comes to mind.
One time I made the mistake of mentioning it to a coordinator that it had just be done recently and didn't need to
be redone. They chastised me well for changing the locks and said they weren't paying for the second round.
Seems to me like it might have been the children. I told them they should not have sent me the w/o.

After that I keep my mouth shut.

Well, at least LPS got it winterized so the toilets don't freeze and break.....

Anyone know what to bid to have structural engineer evaluate if its worth saving? "They" want a bid to place the property in marketable condition. Like that bid will ever get approved.....

I had one where the house was falling down and all of the roof structure was rotted. They wanted a bid to replace the roof and rotten trusses. I told them i would need to consult a engineer or architect and they told me they would reassign because my price was to high. Then they told me that any roofer should be able to complete the job.
