Preservation Watch has no affiliation to any property preservation companies and spent several years as a boots on the ground contractor. Our approach has always been hands on and direct and we educate our members accordingly. Our position of the property preservation industry is one of deceit. One where a contractor is expected to front money to a bank that will try every which way in the end to not pay for the work or use a national for a mouthpiece. Our belief is that the system is corrupted and allows hack contractors and companies to operate illegally in the states it conducts business in. This is allowed by the banks that are listed on your work order as well as the government that receives complaints for non payment and no action. These companies will have you a sign an agreement that will not allow you to exercise your rights as a contractor but even though they have broken the contract they expect you to allow them to enforce theirs.
Our Education and training reflects current guidelines, pricing, contractor requirements and most importantly safety. I have had 2 of my family die at work. These were both people that woke up told their family they loved them and left for work to never return home. The reality is that people die at work from unsafe work conditions, improper training, and performing work they are not licensed for. Likewise, I have had an uncle that allowed a guy he knew was an employee fall off a roof and die. He failed to protect that EMPLOYEE by failing to provide him with the proper PPE and training for the work he was doing. My uncle was fined by OSHA for this and I think more should’ve happened. The fact is without proper training you are crossing a fine line. I have experienced first hand a young electrician not trained “think he was helping someone” reach up and grab ahold of a live wire with 480V running to it. 20 years old. Gone.
