Well ironically had one on Friday, lady called back today and said the wrinkles are still there. Joy. FYI she is a corporate attorney. Why does this never happen with the easy customers? lol

yes , always a lazy excuse of some kind .
Probably know the tiles are going to come up with the carpet. I would of ripped it out asbestos or not. If tiles come up with it. The tiles stay with the building lol. I wouldnt try double stick. Thats a pia in itself. Next guy is screwed. And the church is going to pay the price on labor.

That's a double tear out on a water damage, hourly x2 per man hour. Insurance companies hate that.

That’s a great idea. Can you post a link to the article here so everyone can share it.
I ran the article through a copier. Dont have the issue anymore. How can I find it online or post it online?

My customers dig those triangles...I never take them out anymore...I've got a ton of realtors that ask me to come lay them down just so the potential buyer walks in and sees theyve been recently cleaned...9 x out of 10 they're already clean
