Walgreen's Slabs

#31
Yeah, it's a gravy train. But now nobody wants gravy... They all want the free brunch offered by the unscrupulous installer. I'm working with a client now that has had failures for 20 years and I can show them why it fails, how it fails and how I can guarantee it can be remedied.... Any bets if they take my plan or if they go with the next shiny pick-up truck that says he can fix that up just fine for CHEAP!!
Time and time again my clients fall prey to these hustlers. And in another year they will have brand new flooring failing again.
In fact I have four clients now that are looking for a magic remedy, the instant weight loss pill, the secret word that makes women swoon, the magnets that you put on your gas line and double your mileage.

How strong are the desires to save money and believe the next fancy-tie-guy? I had a client last summer where I tore out his failed spray on system and put down a real mitigation system. On his very next building I conducted all testing and even was able to help design the concrete slab to try to get a dry substrate prior to flooring. The timeline was extremely short and the slab was far too wet, so I quoted a price for mitigation. At the same time the installer recommended a spray and pray just like the one we just spent a fortune replacing on his other building and to my shock he decided to try it again.

Slick salesmen and snake oil...
