    Default Anyone worked for Foundation Certifications?

    Has anyone dealt with a company called Foundation Certification.com? It's an engineering company looking to sub-out manufactured home foundation inspections - an engineer checks your pics, etc. (by the way, in KY, our State license training requires numerous continuing ed hours on manufactured home foundations). Their fee structure is $100-175 per job, plus mileage sometimes, take a few pictures of the foundation, etc. I've worked a few companies like this in the distant past and quit dealing with them due to slow pay, too little $ for the "need-it-done-yesterday" work, but ..... I'm thinking if they have a good track record of paying in a timely manner and send me some fill-in work, why not give it a shot? Thanks for any info. - and Happy New year!

    What you doing up so late, Mitch. Hmmm, wait a minute. I'm up too!

    Foundation Certification.com is just Harrison Engineering, Klamath Falls, Or, giving it another try.

    Here's a link from the past:

    You're a smart guy. Read the contract VERY closely for this type of stuff!

    There's still a lot of that out there. DDN (Digital Draw Network) supposedly one of the bigger ones, just went bust owing a whole lot of inspectors a whole lot of money.

    Erby,
    Thanks for the reply - I'm up late cause my daughter is having a sleep-over (it's going to be a late night!). I did find that this company is Harrison Engineering and saw the post about the other company going under. I'm always real leery of these types of guys from past experience. Just wondering if anyone out there has recent experience with this company - any takers?

    Marc,

    Do you get paid in a timely manner? Do they give you a fair amount of work? Thanks for your input!

    They are a great outfit. I have to check with my girl who does the books to see their payment patterns, but I have'nt been alerted to any unpayed inspections as of yet. Some work comes from them and other work you prospect on your own. That work; you get more money for, I think 40% or so. Give'em a shot.
