Tarps: How to Supplement
Every Roofing Contractors 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
If you don’t get approval for pre-production, take a picture of the tarps in use!
Take a front view of the home to give the adjuster a reference point. Then take the rest of your photos. Always take your photos in the same order that the adjuster’s do: front, right, rear and left.
DON’T LEAVE MONEY ON THE TABLE
If you’re a good contractor, you’re going to use tarps to protect your homeowner’s property. You’re already using it. Snap some pictures and get paid for it!
