    Last summer I dried out a church in my area that had extensive roof damage from a storm. Took about 8 days and another crew from another company. We had about 150 total pieces of equipment and did a great job.

    Fast forward to yesterday...

    Got a call from the pastor of this same church and had a water pipe rupture and flood a whole wing. Two inches of standing water in over 15,000 square feet! Got a team dispatched and extracted with three trucks. Set up over 250 pieces of equipment on this one. Dropped everything I had equipment wise.

    2014 is starting good for me and hope that is for all the FatCats out there as well.

    Stay safe and dry out!

    I'll try and get some pics up.. having issues with camera/computer not communicating, tho....

    Just Just now now saw this. That is a awesome job. How is the dry out coming along? Do you you have 250 pieces of equipment on the job still or has that number hone up? How has has that's adjuster been with you so far? Any complications arisen?

    The job is going very well. The best part about it is that the other company I partner with has taken on the task of dealing with adjuster and billing. I am basically just providing equipment and manpower. We are going to start removing equipment today and should be out by Wednesday, if all goes well. The adjuster is the same one that was on the last job and he knows how we work and has been super easy to deal with. At least on the drying part. Where it gets tricky is the reconstruction. I am out on that this time. I'm just gonna take my money and run... so to speak! LOL

    Anthony, are you in Tampa at SFS this week or is that next week? I will be gone all next week so we wouldn't be able to meet up then.

    Reconstruction can weigh heavily on a firm as the inefficiencies can rise very quickly.

    I always bring in construction experts for the build back as I know that is where I am not proficient.
