Quality of delivery


I got my Hardiplank siding delivery today. The delivery driver broke a few pieces as he was moving into place. I don't have a problem with that, sh** happens and I'm sure the lumberyard will replace.

After he left, I tore the plastic wrap off and looked at a little closer. It came stacked 6 & 8 wide on two pallets. The edge pieces took some abuse. Quite a few pieces have slight damage; Corners bashed or scuffed. It's not much but I was expecting everything to be perfect. It wouldn't have taken much to build corner guards out of double corrugated.

I'm disappointed in the quality of handling of the material. Should I be pissed and have them replace the damaged pieces or am I just being too anal and no building materials come through without some kind of cosmetic scuffs and dings.

I got drywalls delivered and most of them are ok... a few pieces got broken edges... my thinking is I am going to used those broken pieces for things require cut to fit.... so there is zero impact overall.... can you do the same for your situation... if not... then you should ask for replacement....

I didn't want to have to have two different quality stock piles. Now that I think about it, maybe I'm making too much of this. I guess I could just flip it over so that the blemmed edge is will be on top and covered by the next piece. I need to move the stock pile deeper into my driveway tonight, I'll be inspecting each and every piece tonight.

Generally you shouldn't flip hardi. One side is primed and one is not. *************** to the suppliers make them do their job!! you bought undamaged material, they gave you damaged material.

Have them make it right. I run into this quite often with doors from Menard's. They scratch ding and bend doors expecting me to accept them. I tell them to go to hell and send me a new one with a competent driver who will not fuk it up.

Not as bad as I thought, there's about 6 pieces that were trashed. After counting they built in some extra that covers it. I didn't dig into the stack yet but I'm sure there will be a few more that are junk. Anyway the lumberyard is going to send out a few more.

No that's not what I meant, I mean flip it like a propeller.
