Good evening Justin,
Everyone is great and I hope all is well with you and yours.
Justin, I have no doubt that you will land on your feet. Just as bdonner pointed out. The cream will always rise to the top. There will always be a market for rewrites and such for exsisting home owners. And, as bdonner wisely points out, the will choose quality and service over free coffee mugs and gas cards.
However, I think the Ins. industry is untrust worthy with their error rates. I submitted a WM on my personal house, signed by another contractor. It was rejected, by the inspector who reinspected for quality purposes. He showed up when we were not home.
I have security cameras. I saw the ‘inspection’. The guy pulled into my drive way and never got out of the car. He rejected the front doors that open inward, and have a glass insert. From his car, he could not see the hurricane anchors painted to match the wall.
Needless to say, after my phone call. They sent another inspector. He at least walked around the house to verify the hurricane hardware. He did not ask to see the panels, or inspect my attic.
