The detail as you f=descride is actually normal. The key is what is going on behind the vinyl. that can't be answered without taking the vinyl off to determine what level of waterproofing or flashing has been done.
Homies hated all that crap on the front of the house...the poor man gingerbread made from 2x4's, or do you think they look nice when guys typically either cap over them or side over them? lottsa character left behind no matter which way you do it huh? Nothing says character like boxed crown molding, boxed ginger bread supports:laughing::laughing:no offence IHI but you really stripped that house of any character it had
No, i'm not offended because i agree 100% with you, but sadly the budgets around this area are a joke so being able to really do what I/you think would be a cool job just is'nt happening since you know you have to weigh out the costs ratio and try to fit as much into a customers budget as possible. We already knocked off a slug of other work originally bid because we were pushing close to $50K and they just did'nt have the budget, so it's give and take. As for the house, well, they paid $21,500 for it 10yrs ago. It's literally smack dab in the middle of a very "sketchy" neighborhood that a guy was shot 1 block up the road 3 weekd prior us starting, and is the only house house in a 2 sq block area, the rest of the buildings are all huge run down government paid for apartment buildings and old single dwellings that were converted into 2-3 family units...so these folks are the odd duck in their area LOL!!i understand :thumbsup:
but its that kind of attitude that makes it just another vinyl siding job
i'm aware that some owners may not like those details but imo they should have brought a ranch instead of wrecking that nice house
this is not a comment about your installation details which to me look fine:thumbsup:
I did too.....but check out the back:i do have a concern as far as pulling the gable brackets tho
i have done that many times in the belief that they were just decorative
only to find out after the soffit sagged that they weren't
LOL, there WAS a deck in the bid but unfortunately that was one of the things we had to 86 from the game plan due to budget. Same with paving the driveway and actually doing the labor siding the garage, i sold them all the materials but they put it on themselves.Hey IHI- The siding looks great...looks like you could have sold them on a deck as well:laughing: That one looks pretty thrashed.
