Every Roofing Contractor’s Worst Nightmare…
To the average onlooker, this might look like an innocent bush, but as contractors, we know that this Japanese Maple bush can cost us $250 to $500 if it gets damaged during production.
You don’t want to risk paying to replace it when it costs way less to throw a tarp over it to protect it, right? Furthermore, most carriers will pay for the tarp, so it’s basically a no-brainer.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO TO SUPPLEMENT FOR YOUR TARP?
When visiting your worksite, it is important to take photos of everything you have to tarp/protect during production. Look for:
- Air conditioning units
- Driveway pavers
- Flower beds
- Hot tubs
- Koi Ponds
If the tarp is not included on the pre-production estimate, take a picture of the tarps in use during the install.
