I'm sure there are some good people doing that and if I were to do that, I'd do a good job, but I also have met some people that knew/worked for some flippers and the stories they told me just left me floored. I know one person that is forever wondering if he's going to get a lawsuit delivered to his door.

A nice mess. Looks like they put the metal right over top of the old shingles, know lots of guys do , but I don't care too. But if a poor job of putting the metal on you still have a roof under it. Wonder how long they think the caulk will last before starting to leak.

Its interesting that they used the temporary easy to remove nails for this job. Those cost quite a bit more.

Some of the atrocities:

-No door jambs nailed into framing - "Just throw a couple nails from the gun in there, it'll probably hold"
-Some ridiculous 4-way lightswitch scenario that necessitates you knowing in advance that the lights on the 3rd floor are controlled by the switch on the first floor. Sharp.
-No sinks or shower enclosures caulked
-Gigantic bubble in brand new hardwood floor.
-They tiled over 150 year old tongue and groove wood flooring on a sun porch. I can't believe they're all loose after 3 months. Actually wait, yes I can.

That's just scratching the surface. I tell everybody I know around here not to bother even considering buying a house that has a laminate floor in it. If they went for that cheap **** where you can see it, just imagine what they did behind the drywall.

Ok sorry, I'm done.
