Engineers are ridiculous

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


So did it rain?

My neighbor decided it would be ok to pour his new concrete driveway during three days of rain storms. He said he thought he could just do it real fast between rain showers. Gray slurry ran down the street gutter for 3 blocks. They put a broom finish on top the next day late afternoon...........and here I am always in a hurry to finish the same day.

When you get paid $15/sq. to tear off and put back, you want that crap done fast!

Yeah it rained. They laid down the peel and stick and packed up. Can't imagine it stuck very well being wet, but hey. Who cares right?

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


House down the street has had no roof for the last few weeks. They started the underlayment, but haven't even picked up the old shingles from the side of the house. Saw a guy bringing up shingles one package at a time a couple weeks ago. From afar it seems like they hired a contractor, who left and then the guy figured he'd do it himself, but hasn't done anything since.
Lucky for him we've had a very dry winter so far. We'll see how it goes.

They must be Californian. We're starting to think this "rain" thing of which you speak is a mythological being.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


I had the pleasure of watching a "roofer" rip a 2x4 on the sider's brake yesterday. And yes I know the job site is a disaster - I occasionally sub for a GC who needed a drywall finisher for a few days.

You don't even have to make a quote up! They took care of it!

I like the part that says "Know enough about electrical to put on the electrical outlet covers back."
