About this course:
As the cleaning or restoration contractor, you could be liable for a failure if the client is not aware of pre-existing problems before work begins. This training course will explore what to look for so you can get paid and stay out of trouble. Learn how to recognize "hidden" problems before it is too late. We'll explore how to recognize if the installation was done properly, as exterior decks, showers, floors and counter tops can fail if not installed correctly. In addition, we'll discuss how to determine if the subfloor can hold the weight of the stone, the best ways to handle restoration in wet areas, determining proper slopes for shower pans and decks, and why previously repaired problems such as stone and grout cracking keep returning. After completion of this course, you will be better able to recognize what problems may be lurking behind walls and subfloors.
