    The staff was knowledgeable and did a great job. However, the communication was a little lacking.

    Clark Vanek did an excellent job from start to finish. He provided us with competitive bids and stayed in communication with us through completion of the work. Both he and Brian Conrad were pleasant to work with, followed instructions and completed the job in a thorough and timely manner. As out-of-state homeowners, it was invaluable to us to be able to have them do everything that needed to be done without having to contact additional contractors. Rhiannon Chavez, who is handling the billing, is also very thorough and pleasant to work with.

    They saved us a lot of money. We expected to have to trash all the carpets but they said they could save it. We really liked their personality. Everyone was very easy to get along with.

    Review by Mitzi C. of Kimberly, ID
    Oct 21, 2014

    I had never had a disaster happen to me before. Our home had been for sale for two years and we finally had a buyer. We were two weeks from closing and torrential rains had flooded a basement bedroom. It was several days before the damage was discovered and mold had started to grow. I was paniced and didn't know what do do. I called seven numbers listed in the phone book and on internet - Ree-Construction was the ONLY one who called me back.Tali & Clark were onsite within an hour and put the wheels in motion. REE-Construction only had 10 days to demo, remediate, and rebuild. They had numerous other projects going at time because of the flooding in our area, but they put in all the overtime needed to get my project done so my house could be sold on time. Not only was REE-Construction the only company that called me back but I feel so lucky and fortunate that they were the BEST company for the job. THANK YOU!!!

    Clark & Tali regularly called me with updates. I met with them the first day, but then was out of town for the entire project. I never had to wonder what was going on or if everything was being taken care of.

    I thought they did great all the way around. I think it is normal that there were a couple things they had to come back to touch up or finish. They were very organized, friendly, and took care of the things we wanted done.

Q&A with REE-Construction/First General Idaho

Answer Oct 10, 2014

There isn't a lot of information, so I'll make some assumptions.  First the black "spots" are on the inside of the roof sheating, the black spots are assumed to be mold and you live in a cold climate?

If my assumptions are correct you probably have inadequate ventilation of the attic area causing moisture to accumulate, condense and probably freeze during cold weather (hence the spots being limited to north side where sun does not directly heat roof in winter) This water probably thaws in the spring and leaves enough moisture at the surface (water activity) for a long enough time with sufficient temperature to allow mold (probably Cladosporium) to grow.

This is probably either as a result of a moisture source, such as a bathroom vent or perhaps ambient moisture escaping the finished area at an attic access, can lights, etc.  I suspect when you added the insulation, the temperature of the attic space was lowered during heating season as less heat was lost to the attic from the finished space.

Probably need to verify that there are no sources adding moisture load to attic, then add or increase the size of the venting or add a humidistat activated exhaust fan to the attic space to correct the cause and then properly remediate the (apparent) mold.

If the spots are on the outside, the addition of insulation may still have changed the balance of the attic temperature, resulting in moisture staying on the roof longer than in the past as the roof is not heated and dried as quickly by the "lost" heat from the inside.  This may mean it is becomes a maintenance issue either by addition of a controlling agent in or on the roofing material or (annual) cleaning to remove the "spots" when they appear.

Answer Oct 10, 2014

"Best" is a relative term.  There are certainly options that provide different levels of comfort at different price points.  Recently, we've used a product called Thermal Dry from a company called Basment Systems that installs a over the concrete. It is a snap together PVC product (unaffected by moisture) that has a matte finish(for carpet) or a faux finish (like a wood appearance).  This prevents direct transfer of moisture from concrete to carpet and provides a (minimal) insulation layer at the floor layer.

I am sure there are other simlar products on the market, but this one has served us well.

Answer Aug 15, 2014

I'm no attorney-but this is how I understand things as a layman.

Risk is a broad term and I don't know if you are talking to the safety and health or the finanical well being of employees and buyers.

As far as the safety and health of employees there are hundreds of different specific regulations (that carry the weight of law and are mostly administered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or a state agency) that address different industries and different scenarios, but as an overall approach the General Duty Clause lays the foundation for pretty much any of those https://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_id=3359&p_table=oshact

The "code" reference probably relates to plumbing, electrical, building etc. codes.  They certainly regulate various trades and carry penalties of various types (generally financial or with financial consequences, not criminal) for failure to follow them.

As far as industry guidelines and manufacturers guidelines, failure to follow those certainly expose the builders to potential civil lawsuits to compensate someone for alleged damage as a result of that failure.

If there was a situation that resulted in a charge of criminal negligance that results in injury, then I imagine any of the codes, regulations and installation would be brought in to support (or refute) such charges.
