    Roofing Bankruptcy Scandal, Roofing Robots, and Industry Shakeups

    Quick Highlights:

    • Bankrupt Contractor Scandal: Sam Kaufman files for bankruptcy but continues to give business advice.
    • Roofing Robot Debut: Meet Rufus, the innovative roofing robot ready for real-world testing.
    • Solar Tariff Changes: The end of a two-year pause on solar tariffs and its impact on the industry.
    • Texas Supreme Court Ruling: Licensing requirements for public adjusters upheld.
    • Heartwarming Community Support: Maryland family receives overwhelming help after a tree crashes through their roof.
    • Russian Wisdom: Proverb of the week – “Don’t split the skin of the bear you didn’t kill yet.”

    Shady Business Advice from a Bankrupt Contractor

    In a jaw-dropping twist, contractor Sam Kaufman, who filed for bankruptcy in January, continues to dish out business advice. Formerly the owner of On the Level Construction, Kaufman left 42 customers in the lurch, from West Ashley to North Charleston. Despite paying hefty upfront fees, these clients saw no work done. This includes Karen McLaren, who needed a handicap-accessible bathroom built, only to be left high and dry.

    Kaufman’s bankruptcy hasn’t stopped him from coaching contractors, even as court records show numerous claims from homeowners and creditors. Shockingly, he continues to advocate for self-financing in business, ignoring the havoc his financial mismanagement has caused. Can you trust a coach like this? Share your thoughts in the comments.

    Meet Rufus: The Roofing Robot

    Exciting tech news! Contractors in New Jersey and Pennsylvania can now sign up to test Rufus, the roofing robot from Renovate Robotics. After releasing a demo video a few months ago, Rufus is ready for real-world action. Contractors can experience firsthand how this innovative robot performs on the job. If you get the chance to work with Rufus, send us a video!

    Solar Tariffs and Industry Impact

    The two-year pause on solar tariffs has ended. These tariffs, affecting solar panels made in China and Southeast Asia, were initially paused to boost the solar industry with cheaper imports. Now, the Biden administration aims to bolster U.S. solar manufacturing. Companies like Q Cells in Georgia support the tariffs but call for stronger policies to level the playing field. We’ll have to wait and see how these changes affect the industry.

    Texas Supreme Court Ruling: Licensing for Public Adjusters

    In a significant legal decision, the Texas Supreme Court sided with the Texas Insurance Department (TDI) against Stone Water Roofing. Stone Water argued that requiring public adjusters to be licensed infringes on free speech. However, the court upheld the licensing requirement, preventing contractors from advertising their negotiation skills without proper credentials. Insurance industry lawyer Steve Badger applauded the decision. What’s your take? Should public adjusters need a license? Let us know in the comments.

    Heartwarming Community Support in Maryland

    Ending on a positive note, a Maryland family is overwhelmed with gratitude after their community rallied to support them. A tree crashed through their roof during a storm, but neighbors, friends, and even local companies stepped up. They helped set up a GoFundMe to cover the hefty insurance deductible and replace lost items. The family’s resilience and the community’s support highlight the strength of human spirit in times of crisis.

    Russian Wisdom: Don’t Split the Skin of the Bear You Didn’t Kill Yet

    As promised, a bit of Russian wisdom to wrap up this week’s report. The proverb “don’t split the skin of the bear you didn’t kill yet” warns against counting your chickens before they hatch. It’s a reminder to stay grounded and focused until your plans are fully realized. Whether you’re negotiating a business deal or planning your next big move, remember to solidify your success before celebrating.

    For those curious about the Russian language, here’s your word of the week: медведь (medved), which means bear. Comment below with your thoughts on this proverb and how it applies to your life.
