Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Unfortunately no one sees it like another contractor. In the pictures I showed, the siding job was horrendous. Unlocked panels every where, rippled panels under windows bla,bla bla..... All from framers who resided after doing a 12 foot breezeway addition. I had to re pitch the gutter on that section 2.5" to 0" on a 2x6 fascia to get it to drain. It was only a 12ft length

Customer said they had no idea, always thought it was a good job.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


The "builder" and his dad made an attempt to finish the siding on a project I started. He had asked me to start some other job for him and he would "finish-up" the siding on the current one.

I got a call from a friend a while later asking what was I thinking (referring to the substandard siding job). His exact words were, "Did you caulk with your nose?"

I drove out there and once again found that not everyone sets high standards. I always try to maintain uniformity and NEVER use caulk in place of the actual material that should be there.

Looks to me like that wind would have taken some shingles off regardless, I'm not sure if the lack of a license had anything to do with it.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


It was a bad job done. They did not even cut the shingles in the valley. You can't staple felt paper done and then mud roll roofing to it and think it going to stay there

Wow that is ridiculous. The main issues with roof I have to deal with most are 1.Under nailing 2. Not nailing in the right location (the nailing strip)lol

And this is the same thing that happens either with high winds or they start sagging down in high heat on more aggressive pitches.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


How anyone is supposed to sell quality these days is beyond me. If you used the best subs on a large project and complyed with all the rules you would never sell a job...ever...
There are guys doing roofing around here for 40/sq labor on tear offs. There is no way possible to be in business and install at those rates. So alot of the guys who used to install are selling the jobs and having the cheap subs do the work so they can still turn a profit.
Its brutal out there. I looked at a repair this week that the customer had plastic on the side of the house for leaks but didnt want to pay 200 hundred bucks to replace a fascia and tar a metal edge because they were afraid if there was greater damage they couldnt handle the cost. That was a money area too!
Later in the week I had a deck lead but 10 minutes into the meeting he's asking me where I buy from because he called around the lumber yards and noticed the cost was higher at a certain yard so if possible seperate labor in the estimate. People suck, you know dam well he's fishing information to do it himself yet if you dont give an estimate he may tell people he call your company and they blew him off.

I think I posted this one before.

It seems a chunk of old chimney supports a load bearing wall pretty good.
