55 Replies and 31227 Views I fell off the roof for the first time in my life    31227  55 Started by  Olegred
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
I went on this 10/12 garage to mark the hail squares. I was with the contractor. Northern slope was all covered with algae. I was talking to the contractor and said, 'I am not going on that slope'. As these words&160; were coming out of my mouth, I started sliding. Slid all the way down, gaining speed and fell to the ground. The contractor ran like crazy to see if I was hurt, but I was really lucky that day.Slightly sprained ankle and scratches all over my hands from trying to stop that was it....

0 Replies and 1020 Views Change of Profession? (experienced large loss and cat adjuster)  1020  0 Started by  BobDoLe I appreciate if you'd let me pick your brains for a moment here. I've got about a decade's of heavy cat adjuster experience (working in house for one of the major carriers) and about 5 solid years of large loss experience also. All of this has been in residential construction. I have a 4 year degree (BBA) that I haven't ever really applied.  The pay is good, but the travel is still a bit too much 60 despite no longer doing CAT which was about 90 of travel at times. I loved CAT, but w...

0 Replies and 729 Views NAFTA TN1 permits  729  0 Started by  olderthendirt With the likely hood of NAFTA being cancelled there is a question as these permits were introduced as part of NAFTA . Lately a lot of US adjusters have been working north and I assume they all got TN1 permits. As always a few Canuks work south, especially when it a busy year.   Will we be able to cross the border to work in the future

1 Replies and 2387 Views THE NEW CAT ADJ PAYROLL DEAL!!   2387  1 Started by  LG2009 THE NEW DEAL! I have had several Cat companies approach me during these last storms with bogus price lists. One company wanted to dispatch me with Ins Co 'A' and pay me off a price list from Ins Co 'B'! When I questioned hem about this, I got no response. Another Cat Co decided that they would pay $100 for an inspection & scope only, the pay someone else another $100 for the estimate, and bill the Ins Co the full $700 fee! - GREED is running rampant among some of the Cat Cos. We leave our...

7 Replies and 2449 Views Stucco question  2449  7 Started by  suzukini Hello again everyone, I hate having to ask this, but I will be the first to admit I am very unexperienced with stucco finishes, especially seeing them here in CA without any wall sheathing on the interior side.  Wind driven rain caused water to enter this attached garage which has in turn caused the felt backing of the stucco finish as well as the interior wood paneling to have staining. My question is this:  is the damage on the stucco felt layer something that needs to be replaced o...

0 Replies and 1277 Views TN Permits and working under NAFTA  1277  0 Started by  stormcrow Starting to hear stories, Canadian Nurses refused TN permit. This is certainly a concern for Canuk adjusters wanting to work south of the border in the USA. Will they be refused entry, the agents certainly have the power to refuse anyone. And if movement southward is blocked, will Canada block US adjusters In the last couple if years many US adjusters have worked in the great white north. Most under a TN permit. Something to watch and would love to hear from any Canuks who cross or t...
