Maybe you didn’t feel it, but on November 12th, the building industry was shaken up. Hard, like they got punched, and punched and punched. The law firm of Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger is representing Aoife Beary and another party who are suing for damages from the result of the balcony collapsing on June 16th of this year.
The suit asks for damages, enough to make an example out of the defendants, enough so THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN! Every person involved in building decks, especially cantilevered, are now on notice that it better be done perfectly and correctly. OR YOU WILL PAY. Remember to, the DA’s office is investigating this too and criminal charges may still come!
|BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID!|
|NO OSB SHOULD BE EVER USED! THIS LIST OF ALLEGATIONS IS A LIST
OF EVERY DECK PROBLEM I SEE ALL THE TIME
So here you are building industry, property management industry, design industry etc; start designing, building, sequencing and use the right materials cause the deaths of these poor kids WILL NOT BE IN VAIN! READ THIS LIST, IT’S JUST A WHO’S WHO OF THE SINS I SEE DURING INSPECTIONS AND WHEN I WAS WATERPROOFING DECKS!
LESSON-IF YOU SCREW UP AND PEOPLE DIE, YOU PROBABLY WILL GO TO JAIL AND PAYA WHOLE LOT OF MONEY, AND HAVE TO LIVE WITH THOSE THAT DIED ON YOUR CONSCIENCE.
NOT WORTH IT, DO IT RIGHT, IT ONLY COSTS A LITTLE MORE THAN DOING IT WRONG.
