Is this acceptable? Pics

I ordered moulding from a lumber yard rather then HD so I would get quality. It came primed and I just sprayed it with a Graco Truecoat sprayer (highly recommend) and used SW Emerald semi gloss. I sprayed the mouldings so they would be nice and smooth. After spraying them you can see every spot where boards were jointed together.

I am posting some pics to see if I am over reacting or not. Let me know what you think.

It will be just fine because eventually everyone's house will look like that. Think of it this way; you were one of the first in the decades to come to use joined lumber rather than warped lumber.

Unacceptable. IMHO.

Jointed lumber has been used for at least 20 years that I know of. I have never seen it telescope like this. This was not cheap moulding. They tried to sell me cheaper 'house brand' moulding.

That's rather extreme---Is there unusually high humidity where you are working? I've only seen that after a flood-----

Troy32 08-14-2013 08:14 PM

No high humidity. They delivered it and I brought it into the house. I brought it outside on a sunny day to spray it and right back inside an hour later to finish drying.

All of the moulding in the house from the previous owner looks great. I feel this moulding will look terrible with noticeable lines every foot or so.

I just got back from HD and their moulding is also finger jointed but it is almost impossible to see the joints. The moulding I have you can actually feel the joints when you rub your hand over it.

The lumber yard must have a humid shack --that is not normal --I would expect a customer to pitch a fit if I installed that---

I am going to speak to the lumber yard tomorrow. Would it be reasonable for them to say it was my responsibility to sand the joints smooth?

Probably what they will say.

I am certain you would not have installed it without sanding it first:whistling2:

Even still that kind of crap is not acceptable, IMO

if you could feel the joint's , than you should have sanded the joint's down, just paint will not make them invisable , i guess you may have to sand down now the painted board's?? good luck

FJ stock is usually pretty clean, you certainly shouldn't have to sand all of the detail.

Not sure why OP painted it instead of just returning it though.
