windows peeling/aluminum ?


Since I'm semi retired what I do now is just small jobs I can handle myself.
My next three jobs are to go back and fix DIY wrapping and siding jobs.
Some had 6" pieces of siding with no nails.
No window tape around the doors or windows.
One door did not have the first nail in the J moulding, just caulking to hold it in place.
No Z moulding over windows or sliders.
No utility trim under the windows.
Siding cut to long or nailed to tight.
No house wrap.
Coil stock was installed starting at the top.
All the J mouldings were cut wrong and there's no tab at the top.
Siding and sheathing was run right into the ground.

All this on one house.
Might be one more reason I suggested hiring someone.

Someone here mentioned ..."did you prime the wood first"??????I did not..but I bought Valspar,exterior paint from lowes home imp,. that supposedly has a primer built in to the paint. Is this a new angle to you, or was I to vulnerable to advertisements on primer and paint- all- in- one. Do you see what i'm saying please! let me here it..and thank you bob s

ps all the other o/s paint is staying on good! this is all under 3' overhangs.

All up to you to make some phone calls.
Someone may be able to work you in if they finish up a job early, get a day were it may or may not rain so they do not need a full crew, Someone may just be slow this time of year.
No way to know unless you call and find out.
No idea what you consider a ton of money.
To do this job right there going to be bringing serveral thousands of dollars in tools and years of know how.
Plus the roll of material that cost them about $80.00.
Small jobs always cost more, got to have the same tools but there's added time to come look at it and set up time.
