Take a good look at this picture. Yup, that’s a concealment panel sitting on a roof. Now, I’m certain that’s not where it is supposed to be but that’s where it wound up.
Here’s the deal. We’re seeing more of this everyday. Some if it is due to the age of the site other times the installation may have been incomplete or it could be just an act of God. Whatever the cause, in most cases we’ve seen, some regular maintenance would have prevented the problem.
Remember this, a concealment cannot go without regular care just like anything else you own and when you neglect it you do so at your own peril. In my next post, I’ll give you some ideas on how to take action and avoid these situations.
One of the most frequent causes of back charges/delays comes when the contractor is unable or unwilling to ask for help regarding the concealment structure or materials. Keep in mind, the structures we build can be complex and typically we’ve spent a lot more time thinking about them than the contractor ever will have time to do. That makes us very good at seeing where the potential problems might be. Not to mention, we work with dozens of different contractors every year so our experience in troubleshooting is DEEP.
So, if you’re installing concealment don’t hesitate to call if you’re stuck or even better call before you’re stuck. Nine times out of ten we can get you unstuck…fast! And in doing so get the site back on track for an on-time completion.
Recently, our CEO Sean McLernon was interviewed by About.com Entrepreneur’s guide. The story, “An Invisible Product Lets Stealth Fly Below the Radar,” discusses “under the radar” businesses.
From the article:
I’ve been looking lately for businesses that are “under the radar” — ones that not too many competitors are interested in, and therefore offer their owners some protection and better margins. Well, I found one that’s literally under the radar: Stealth Concealment Solutions, based in North Charleston, S.C., Stealth creates concealments for wireless cell phone antennas across the United States.
This is one way to tell a fake from an original.
Driving in CT this weekend I saw a massive fake tree. I’d love to see the original photosim on that one. I know, I know. Where’s the pic? I’ll try to get one on my way back. Suffice it to say, the concealment industry has come along way since that was built.
