That hurts my knee's just watching that!Nice job. Thanks for sharing.
What is the warranty on their snowmelt cable?
no ouchHard to see because we work & move so quickly(!), but the knee pads did their job & there was no pain in the days that followed. We could reach the first half from the curb side, but used the planks to lay out over the remainder while fastening the cables.
10-years on the cables & 1-year on the controls. The owners decided they wanted a redundant set installed just in case one of the multiple (yet to be installed) circuits fails.
Stairway next & then we'll tackle the upper grand entrance area. This started out as a hydronic system during my initial design-phase 1.5-years ago, but the owners wanted to utilize electric.
5 years ago, a job like this would have gone from design-to-bid-to-installed in weeks. Seems like the economy has stretched out the process by miles & the hours of work it takes to land bids have expanded exponentially. The race may still be with the swift, but they're racing a longer distance these days!This post was edited by an admin on July 31, 2011 9:12 AM.
Those guys....move fast. And judging by the hardhats, union guys to boot. Go back and take a pic right after a blizzard...that should sell a few more :). Of course, Yakkity Sax (I think), or the Benny Hill song was a perfect touch.steveThis post was edited by an admin on July 31, 2011 11:02 AM.
Not union, butCommercial site & the company safety office is just to the left behind a glass wall & the GC gets written up if any site workers aren't properly outfitted. Cranial lids are no fun in the heat.
Thanks to Wheels for the notion to add Yakkity Sax.
