COMMON MISINFORMATION

CONCRETE MATURITY

THIS CHART OUTLINES MATURITY OF CONCRETE OVER 28 DAYS. I CAN NOT TELL YOU HOW MANY HOMEOWNERS ARE TOLD IT IS OKAY TO DRIVE ON CONCRETE 7 TO 14 DAYS OLD. PLEASE NOTE THE GRAPH CONTINUALLY CLIMBING IN STRENGTH. IF 14 DAYS WAS IT THE GRAPH WOULD FLATLINE AFTER THAT POINT. IT CONSTANTLY CLIMBS IN STRENGTH. STAY OFF FOR 28 DAYS AND YOU WILL BE SAFE. COULD AND SHOULD ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WORDS TO LIVE BY.

HORIZONTAL WALL CRACKS

THESE ARE SIGNS OF A FAR WORSE CONDITION THAN VERTICAL CRACKS. BOTH ARE CAUSE FOR CONCERN. WHEN A WALL COLLAPSES IT CAUSES CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE. TELLING YOURSELF YOU CAN WAIT ON THE REPAIR IS THE SAME AS GOING TO THE CRAPS TABLE AND THINKING YOU HAVE THE EDGE..REALITY SOON FOLLOWS.

SALESMEN SELLING FOR A BUSINESS

SALESMAN ARE THERE TO SELL YOU WHAT THEY CAN MAKE A BUCK ON. IF YOU WANT CHEAP AND LOOK FOR IT YOU WILL FIND IT. THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT IS THE BEST FOR YOU IN THE LONG RUN. WE ARE CONSTANTLY GIVING HOMEOWNERS THE TRUTH AND IT IS USUALLY BAD NEWS. WE WON'T MISLEAD YOU OR SELL YOU WHAT YOU WANT...WE WILL SELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED...BIG DIFFERENCE. REMEMBER, OUR SALESMAN IS ALSO THE CRAFTSMAN DOING YOUR PROJECT.
