Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


$40k full tearoff, adding 60 pc of sheathing bc was zero under original siding, framing rot repairs as a result of, full Hardie Color Plus package, I come back to see why my final CO failed.

Short answer from learning after the fact. My bid for adding a portico over front stoop was $1400 more than he wanted to pay. His “contractor” pulled no permit, jacked up my siding, did a Busch job, took his $ and ran. After I made mention my 10 year workmanship along with James Hardies warranty were null and void, he felt pretty humble.

See any issues?

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Same house, separate areas. I did a bathroom here a year and a half ago that was sloped almost 2" from one side to the other, quality building back in 89

I'm betting that vent could've gone a couple inches one way or the other.

Improperly flashed/ not flashed at all chimney.

Small sample of what we found behind the old siding. Even gave homeowner discount on material and labor needed to make it right. He was upset with my $5k price for 60 osb and reframing half of his bottom plates/window headers/etc.

Lordy. That was close.

The reason those steps failed inspection was clearly the tripping hazard of those string of Xmas lights.
