I was rather upset about it to say in the least.. but my dad was cool about it because he carried a million in insurance. The HO allowed us to come back and fix the plumbing even though she still sued us for the other damage, and it was not as bad as I thought being that the water was contained to the bathroom floor, the foyer and kitchen below, and then the unfinished basement.I might just have to consider suicide if that happened to me. Thats like a nightmare come true
Reminds me of a commericial roof that was part of a larger job.
The roofers papered it Friday afternoon.
That night we had gail force winds, woke me up.
Went to the job @ 0500 and 8,000 sq. ft of 30# roofing felt was gone,
and not a scrap to be found.
I typically will have at least 1/3 up front and 1/3 at the agreed halfway point so i've got most of my money in my pocket before any job is completed so at least if I get screwed my bottom line is hopefully covered.Ever since then it's been money first, work second, or find someone else.
It wasn't my hard lesson. I greatly prefer to learn from others mistakes....but..... about a block down the street a tiny house got reroofed..
......and the better lesson is never leave anything for the night that weather can affect. from a roof open to inadequate bracing of anything.
I always crack the valve and let it roll through nice n easy... never seen one blown apart though. Must have been one helluva messWhen running 2" plastic h20 supply line 400' when u enter the office space in the basement and immediately switch to 2" copper make sure to secure the copper to masonry wall before charging the 400' line. I found out on a late 8pm Friday evening that the pressure when hitting the 90 will just rip it from the sch 40 and flood the basement with out a doubt! Thank god for insurances and some great employees who stayed to wee hours in the morning !!!!
