    replied to Burglar bars
    How did the building end up that tall if you didn't need the space inside? It does not look like the result of a steep roof pitch. Looks like a really unusual situation.

    Anyway, I do work for a building company (not the one that made your project from what I see in that picture) and burglar...

    replied to Burglar bars
    If the burglar bars are the only thing stopping someone in your facility from taking things, you have a problem because he or she will find a way in if they want. The bars are common and have been used for decades - in high pitched buildings you get bigger areas to cover due to the higher peak. Cutting...

    replied to What should we do
    1. ) I am not an attorney and your ultimate guide should be your own state statutes and attorney.
    2. ) You don't grant anyone access (ie lock cutting, key replacement etc) unless they can show that they are the executor of the estate.
    3. ) I would let anyone (friend/family attorney) pay...

    replied to Digigate Discontinued
    If I had it to do over again, I would not have bought PTI. Keypad failure rate in midwest winters has been awful. When a $700 keypad failed after six months of use, their answer was that because their dealer had it on the shelf for over a year before it was installed, the warranty was expired before...

  • My latest is that I have someone claiming to be from Norway that keeps asking how much money to Paypal to me for a unit. He has called multiple times and keeps submitting the same request in broken english via a web form. Does not reply when I have emailed, just writes in the form again asking how to...

  • When a building is ordered with gutters, there would be less roof overhang and the gutters are attached to the building, not the roof sheet. You should not attempt to attach any kind of gutters to your roof panel as the weight will be a problem when they fill with ice. Cutting the panels to be shorter...

  • For every call that a building salesperson makes right now, four more voicemails show up. Sales people are can't keep up with the emails coming in. Projects need to be repriced over and over again due to escalating steel prices, steel mills are rationing materials, there are not enough truckers to go...

    replied to Replacing Roof & Doors
    Doors are easy, and the roof can usually be done with a roof hugger system that goes right over the old.

    However, there are major steel shortages hitting the industry right now, steel is being rationed, and the prices are highest ever and going higher. If you can hold off for a year I would...

    replied to I lost my key!
    No one but me is allowed to cut a lock on my property for all the reasons listed above. Often that call comes from a spouse not on the lease.

    If I did not live nearby and had to use a locksmith, the locksmith service would be contracted through me after verifying ID via text image or email...

    replied to DaVinci locks
    I use them on my delinquent units. They work well for those times when the client that is 23 days late whines about wanting to get in 45 seconds after they pay at the kiosk.

    I get most of them back.

  • I have my tenants initial a statement that says they understand that we don't prorate out. I believe that it's more of an attempt to get a few bucks back rather than not knowing for many of them. But this argument is also part of the side effect of non-contact rentals. After all, when was the last time...

    replied to Don't Take It Personally
    The other thing to keep in mind is that there is a good chance that who ever you are dealing with is going through a divorce, lost a family member, is in the middle of a move, was evicted or who knows what. Many of our customers are going through some big changes in life for one reason or another and...

    replied to Don't Take It Personally
    I used to take all the little stuff more personally. Litter. Late payments. all the rude and disrespectful stuff that I would be ashamed of my children for doing. But then again, my business is doing very well and I am very fortunate. Dealing with a few bad debts and some litter is a cost of doing business....
