We do total repipes all the time on water,sewer and gas with affecting the customers as little as possible (commercial work). You have to come up with a plan, you run the new system beside the old system and then schedule to make crossovers in the middle of the night. It's not easy but it's a job and it can be done properly without kicking everybody out of the building.

Thanks for all the information..... This kind of work you have to be really geared up to do.... on both the plumbing end and on the legal end too... cause you will probably never get all your money when its done....

The building has already changed hands a number of times over the past 20 years and it is legendary for being non-paying or slow.. The maintenance crew comes and goes like the wind.... that is according to things my salesman has told me.......

Their is no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow but I am sure they will find some young upstart willing to take the bait.... and learn a hard lesson.

For those who are planning to start their business take notes from this quote. You will be tested and promised treasure chests full of jewels. I was baited many times in the 1st year of my start-up. They get your name from magazines that publish all the new businesses. They will pounce on you just like they do to noobies in prison and steal your commissary.

And the fact you cannot get a contractor licence if you have a criminal record.

Sorry to shut down your fantasy.

The one thing I avoid like the plague is landlords or management companies. We do have two we work for but other than that I turn them down every time. Not worth the 180 days of no payments and having to threaten them with legal action to get paid, get tired of feeling like we are their bank.
