    high rise flood loss and circuit breaker problems

    Dual Wanding With an El Diablo, 12 Hours Non-Stop

    Guess I look at things different. If I had two guys on a job for 12 hours....thats 24 hours of work. I better be billing for 24 hours of work and getting paid for 24 hours of work. Once you have established your man hours you can determine your budget and profit

    Kenmore Elite 70 Pint Dehumidifier

    Customer would not....adjuster who is probably footing the bill would and will not be amused by a residential piece of equipment, this type of dehumidifier will not create the grain depression needed for effective drying. Like Scott said in the 1980s all dehumidifiers operated in this same...
