Would you inspect all catch basins for complete integrity, down to the cinder block, and have a cost for doing any remedial work itemized in your proposal?
Yes, we always inspect the catch basins within the roadways that are included in the scope of work. We also inspect the catch basins as part of the pre-construction meeting with the awarded contractor and the Association Manager so that we are all 100% clear on the extent of work and pricing. Our bid proposal package provides an itemized breakdown of costs for parging (concrete/cement resurfacing of interior walls) a catch basin, repairing 1 to 4 courses of cinder block, and full reconstruction of catch basins. The contractor fills-in each line item so that there's an established price for each. The community will only pay the contractor for the work that is performed.
