Hot Mop my Shower Pan…Who should I use?

Hot Mop my Shower Pan…Who should I use?

Share

Part of my job entails a lot of driving around…consulting and bidding jobs, meeting contractors with difficult custom applications, and my favorite: cold calls at construction sites…nothing like a face to face with a builder to sell your services, old school it is, seems with all the ways we can communicate today, the one on one shake your hand kind of service still imparts a since of knowledge and idea exchange you can’t get from electronic communication so i am happy that i can work in both worlds!!!

My observations and the fact of what I am seeing, that as work has picked up and as more and more hot mops are getting done. (Not a brain buster there!!!) more single kettle hot moppers are jumping in. I have been seeing 25 gallon kettles in the back of small pick-ups, pushed up on an flat bed, even inside a van, lots of tow behinds and trailers packed with materials and more to the point as it concerns you and benefits DKShowerPans, the smaller companies are swamped and they are turning down work or worst being late or being a no show, (we get more than a few new clients that way), or having to put in longer hours to meet there work load, an accident waiting to happen, if it carries on for too long.

Lots of men slinging a mop, some back from the busier days, some roofers trying to get off the roof, and a host of others with varying amount of experience.

Roofers were the norm back in the day to get your pans mopped, as they were the ones with the kettle!!! We still replace pans done by inexperienced roofers. hot mopping a shower pan, is a whole different world then mopping in 2 plys and a cap sheet! being able to do a properly done shower pan, entails correctly takes a number of different steps, pre-slope, crisp clean corners, drain attachment, bench application’s, odd shapes, keeping it clean in remodels, avoiding water pockets in your top coat (a must know in LA county they are one of the toughest on shower pan inspections!) all these are learned with teaching and experience. DShowerPans offers you all the needed qualities yo need in getting a top notch, on time, in budget, professional hot mopped shower pan, backed by a company known for its reliability and work ethnic, devoted to giving the construction community the best customer service available.

Questions like; how long have they been in business and in that location?, what is there contractors number and is it in good standing?, liability insurance?, how long will my job take and when will they show up? Are they going to make a mess? Is the truck going to make a mess? All these should and any others concerns you may have should be answer easily and efficiently by who answers you call.
