I can't agree with Franks respons to Bill Allen (probably not the first =
time Frank and I have disagreed). I will concede the issue if life =
safety is the only concern. However, in today's ecconomy financial =
disaster resulting from damaged structures is forcing homeowner to =
abandon their life's dream and is causing the insurance industry =
billions in damages from earthquakes, winds and water.
Thirty years ago, labor rates where more in line with inflation. Today, =
any unnecessary damage is uncalled for. For the first time in our =
profession, we need to recognize the demand to lower the limits of =
damage and demand better built structures. In my area of "starter" homes =
where property values are low, the majority of money spent on a home is =
placed into the construction, not the cost of property. Furthermore, in =
this area, we are forced to make structures as ecconomical as possible =
since the difference in $5,000.00 in the cost of a home will determine =
the difference between a renter and a qualifer. How will this family =
stay in their home if they suffer $30,000 in damages and their insurance =
company is only liable of $8,000.00 on an $80,000.00 home???
Frank, I am seeing more and more people living with the damage rather =
than repairing it due to the inability to afford the repairs. I see many =
walk away from their homes or lose them back to the bank.=20
I can't help but feel this is avoidable if we strive to approach a zero =
tolerance philosophy.
