No Job Is Too Small!


Small project I just finished in between floors. Owner wants chip flooring throughout his building now. Sometimes ya gotta do a little BS job to land a bigger fish.

It's the small things that make a big difference in visual appeal. Looks great! How does it hold up to snow shoveling?

It should hold up pretty well. Polyaspartic is 3x more abrasion resistant than epoxy & a lot more flexible. You can install the stuff down to -20 degrees. (It can be used in commercial freezers that cannot be shutdown in 24hr businesses) Only time will tell which is another reason I used it here so I can watch it and see how well it holds up when used exterior to the PA winters.

You say it yourself " should hold " "only time will tell etc etc ..."

Let's just say;

Some "__________" in C. PA . walks out that door and "slips, falls through railing , awning cover , crashes down and breaks his neck". on your work.
Sues the bldg. owner. Bldg owner sues YOU. Your like "no way". The "chips" weren't crunchy enough. Lawyer aren't buying that.
Go back here and post on the courtroom wall too show jury.
I quote" this/your post" Now here you are six yrs later. Spent entire saving, defending yourself. And you lose. And now have a judgement against you & your family, for over six figures. When really it was the bldg owners fault for the way he maintenanced the stairs. Maybe it'sice melt, that he was using.
Reaction with your work and rusted out the post.
To. bad ice melt gone.They already thought of that.

A good tradesman would have clean,prep,prime & paint railing.
and told bldg owner the roited out post needed to be replace. Sometime you floor guys need to start at the top. Now has too be done on newer work.
Take a good look at were hardware meets "your work". Don't have gramma get out of her wheel chair, holding onto that .

Atleat you have the pictures for your trial. To bad for this bldg owner. Your posting his negligence on the www. think your much of a liability.

*Yup, should hold. First exterior job w/the product. Company says it will work well. Like I said, I can watch it and see. If not....theres hundreds of other things I could do to them steps if it fails for PENNIES out of my pocket and no charge to the owner.

*First of all the floor is no more slick than the asphalt below when wet. I have personally tested it. Second of all, I am NOT A PAINTER. The owner is well aware of the condition of the awning and the railing and is having them replaced. I personally talked to the contractor who is doing the work and was told to do my work first. It's kind of hard to fasten a new awning to air so the left side of the steps that was non-existant needed to be repaired first. I know a hack like yourself would have offered to do the railing and awning yourself, but I like to stay within my realm and do things that I know how to do.

Atleat you have the pictures for your trial. To bad for this bldg owner. Your posting his negligence on the www. think your much of a liability.



*Hmmm Im not sure how the owner fixing the steps is negligence. Maybe you would like to talk to him personally? Im sure he would love to hear your concerns!

Have yourself a wonderful day!

Rather late for that advice.

BTW, when you understand that he was simply saying what he would want to do if he slipped and fell, you will understand his post better.

It's an improvement from the existing. You have to give the owner kudos! I don't see how the contractor would be liable for making an improvement.

Nice job .
I don't think the abrasive paint is available in Tahoe roofing land , this is a good thing it is used everywhere else in the world.
So we don't have to worry about getting sue
