What ever happened to taking pride in doing something and doing it right? Has the almighty dollar turned all contractors into crooks? Does quality and workmanship count anymore? I previously posted about the problems our daughter has had with EVERYONE that has done work on her house. Everyone wants to do their work the fastest way possible for the most money regardless of how the job was done. My point??
Two years ago we put a new metal roof on our house not because it leaked but because it was over 50 years old ahd had been painted so much that it flaked off badly and looked horrible. BUT it didn’t leak!!! Well, after one year the new roof has leaked really bad on the enclosed porch on the east side of the house. Hubby figured it was useless to call the contractor that put the roof on and we’re not even sure he is still in business. We had one contractor on the roof twice and today had another that found the problem on the main roof of the house. The first one found several problems and fixed them but the worst leak that poured like a sieve was directly over the main breaker box in the house. My husband had put caulk all over the addition and overhang to the addition but it didn’t stop the rain. Today he ran into the friend of a friend that is a contractor and he was glad to come up and take a look. Once he got here he went to the main roof that over top the addition roof. He found the problem within minutes and has completed the task and now we wait!
You know, when you pay thousands of dollars for a job you expect it to be right! You expect to get quality and pride in something well done! OR at LEAST WE DO!!! If it doesn’t happen this time around you’ll probably see another post about our roof. If it’s fixed, you’ll see a thank you to those that did their job and did it well!!
