Hi from Cincy!

I'm glad I found this group. I have been doing property preservation for almost 15 years. I've seen many changes and miss the good old days. I miss when these companies actually used inspectors. When the inspectors would tell them what needs done, we would get an order to complete and the inspector would go check the work. Things were so much simpler then. Now all the responsibility is on the contractor, we are property managers as much as we are contractors.
Anyways, I just wanted to say hi before I made my first post.

HI!
Welcome Cincy! I must ask on another thread you asked about some info on Bleach and Kilz in rafters, why are you putting yourself out there for that kind of liability? Ask your client to send you a letter stating that you will not be held liable for any after effects of this type of treatment and see what they say.

Will a letter from the client really hold up and remove all liability from you ?

Point is they will not give you one therefore the liability rests squarely on your shoulders. Bleach and kilz is nothing more than a quick fix to a major problem that the bank, the national, and the regional do nothing but pass the liability to the contractor who will solely be held liable should the next owners become sick and it is determined to be from mold that you covered up.

Welcome cincygirl!

...and that comment about the bleach & Kilz, is exactly why I don't do "discoloration" work. I refuse to do a [email protected]$$ed fix that can make people sick just so a national/regional can final inspect a house and get paid. No way. I don't want the liability, or the hit on my conscience. Nothing torques me off more than seeing that stupid "discoloration" word. Such a lie.
