I usually just say, "This is what I do for a living, I know the right way."
"The person that refered me to you thought I did it right, you should trust me to as well."
That is what you say in response to a MFG's recommendation :blink:
I'll have to ask him if he got an email from the manufacturer,but he said he spoke with him over the phone.
I've known this HO since I was 10,an old neighbor,so I know how opinionated he can be and he sticks to his guns.
People use to shy away from him in the clubs,bacause it was always"agree with me or be ready for a good argument."
I just want to cover me arse so I'm going to get written approval from the manufacturer.
Just realized also that I'll have to go to 5" corners just to get solid nailing.
Looks like it's time to refigure the price on a few things here.
Yes, its my business therefore I am responsible for the finished product. If the manufacturer says to put it on Third layer and I think it will make a ****ty finished product that I cant be proud of I wouldnt do it regardless.
I can sign away my warrantee but where I live if it looks like crap its going to come back either way.
Just got a call from HO on Siding Job scheduled for spring.
He didn't seem to trust my recomendations for removing the double layer of shake siding,insulate,tape,and reside so he
emailed the Manufacturer for their recomendations.
Manufacturer says to go over shakes with double faced foil, seal joints,and then tyvek over before siding.
Doesn't he realize that we would need 3 1/2" nails which would probably tend to sag in time rendering any warranty useless?
The shakes nor the insulation wouldt have very limited verticle stregnth for the nails.
It doesn't feel right to me,so I need to convince HO that taking my route will be a better quality job.
Maybe some feedback from some of the Pro installers can give me a leg to stand on here...................or not.:whistling
That can be hard to swallow for some customers. Remeber fight or flight. People tend to distrust whet they are told but believe what they say. I use reason and influential questions. I.E. I lead them down a path to say what you said..
