    We had a new pool deck poured about two weeks ago and sealed last week. It just rained and I’m noticing all sorts of dark spots that look like oil droplets. And a couple cracks propagating from the edge. Is this spotting normal and will go away? And are these cracks within tolerance? How would...

    Hi All. I have two newly sticking doors and I'm wondering who should pay. They happen to be nearest my new staircase (cut into living room, down to basement) and I'm wondering if my contractor should fix that within the SOW vs a CO since it's a result of their work? Could they have done...

    I looked at a house I'm considering buying in Southern California with an attached addition. Either the contractor that built the addition or the plumber jackhammered through the outside foundation wall to make room for the copper and ABS drain lines. A real messy job, and right next to a beam...
  8. Roofing/Siding
    Hi everyone, I had a contractor replace my siding this spring and now after the first big rain storm of the season I have water damage in my house. I believe it is due to the siding company not installing the siding properly and leaving nail holes, cuts and gaps in my old flashing. It appears...

    In middle of working with a very iffy contractor. Much of the tile lay by his crew is solid with minimal lippage- However, some of the cuts that run off at end points are sloppy, somewhat jagged / uneven and leave WAY to much room for grout to be filled. The tiles by other tiles grout lines are...
  16. Roofing/Siding
    Hi! Recently joined this forum to get some advice. I met up with this contractor to get a re-roof and the fascia fixed/replaced. I gave the guy $1,000 to buy the materials. It's been more than two weeks and the materials have not been delivered nor has any tear down started. The original job...
