    This one may go to court and I'm not getting involved.

    Attorney by day only. I'm glad you all appreciate my help. Lesson learned.

    This one may go to court and I'm not getting involved.

    I am an attorney and Todd is correct. You are only compelled to testify as to facts. If the property manager wants your opinion, then you are an expert witness and you are entitled to charge the party calling you for your testimony.

    Tumbled Marble Floor

    I think a neutral stone cleaner would be your best bet. A high alkalinity cleaner can also damage marble. A pad is much preferred since it will retain the dirt.

    Is this finish supposed to be applied to engineered wood? Won't the aluminum oxide finish repel the coating?

    Sir Grout

    Yo Pistol. You just articulated the problem. Their royalty and advertising fees are so excessive that the franchisee needs to charge more just to maintain any kind of a margin. Ethan, I have an idea. Why not retain Pistol or someone else on this board who already has a successful hard...

    Sir Grout

    I've read their FDD. You're paying a lot, both up front and then with continuing royalties and advertising fees, just for some organization. They may be good for marketing, however. I think their website is the best in the business.

    Try using a wet sandblasting attachment to a pressure washer. The paint should come right off.

    Concrete staining

    When you book a decorative concrete job, always get 50% of the quoted price up front. That way, it evenly splits the risk between the customer and you. Your customer bears the risk at the beginning and you bear the risk at the end. You should be able to recover all or most of your costs with a...

    Concrete staining

    Once an acid stain reacts with the calcium in concrete, you really can't re-stain it again because that reaction has already taken place. Accordingly, you would have to use a water-based stain which will give the concrete a different appearance. A pic or two would be helpful. Last, the...

    Prepping for Hurricane-Any advice?

    Katrina survivor here. Put all refrigerated and frozen items in garbage bags and then put them back in the refrigerator/freezer. If the power goes out for several days, you can just throw the garbage bags away but your refrigerator will not be contaminated with rotted food.

    Walkoff mats left grout discolored

    The slow process is the problem. I have a Daimer steamer but it seems to be practical for only small areas. How could SAA do Sea World and finish before Christmas?

    Lets talk about 175's

    Why not use the 17" downstairs and get the Oreck Orbiter for upstairs? I've tried it here and a 17" 175 is dangerous for one person to get down a flight of stairs. Also, the dedicated circuits for the disposal and washing machines are down stairs. I keeping throwing circuits when I use the...

    Buying an established business?

    The problem with an indemnity clause is that it relies upon the financial solvency of the indemnitor.

    Buying an established business?

    That is why Dustin should look at an "asset only" sale. You already have pointed out tax and compensation liabilities. There may be other hidden liabilities. If you are going to buy a business, only buy the assets. Dustin, I'm in Metairie and perhaps we can meet for lunch one day. PM me...

    Success Leaves Clues. Clue #1

    Interesting advice. One of the books I studied is a dictionary. That's why I know the difference between "vicarious" and "voracious." Why, some of us even know how to spell "hors d'oeuvres" correctly.

    Be Careful What You Wish For

    Why are some people so hung up about the "white collar-blue collar" distinction? I know for a fact that some plumbers and electricians make more money than some attorneys. As long as you can get out of bed in the morning looking forward to the day and make an income which can sustain your...
