Good for your Mom on getting full price. Good for that 14 year old boy for doing his best.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Floor prep gone bad. New vinyl over old subfloor. Subfloor adequate (particle board over 5/8 ply), BUT the seams were all taped with masking tape. No big deal, right? Remove tape, sand and prep accordingly.

Nope.
Too hard. Just leave the tape then, it'll be fine...
It's like this all throughout the home... I've got more pics, and I'll post a couple more later.
The flooring company is going to come out and install new vinyl plank over this vinyl.

Reminds me of about 5 years ago I was on a residential site. Carpenters took out a wall and put in an LVL...without putting in any additional support underneath. So half the load was beating onto the OSB sub floor.

One guy runs over and yells "Oh Sh!t" and he gets down on his hands and knees staring at the deflecting sheathing. Damn 3/4" OSB had sunk over an inch...pretty impressive how well it held.

I assume that's a glue down vinyl.

Yep. Does not magically transfer adhesive through masking tape or masking tape residue.
I'm playing devils advocate here...i don't actually know if the tape is still there, but I'm guessing it is.

This wasn't a big beam but was sunk half an inch. I fixed it up.

They look well built and expensive but the castle ranch look isn't that good. It looks even more out of place as you drive down the street of ranch houses before seeing this.

Job I looked at today. Too much work to remove a $10 downspout. Much easier to just stucco around it
