    This pass fall my neighbors had bunch of work done to his house. They had couple of guys come and put siding,sofit,fascia and new eave troughs on their house. It took the guys about 2 months to do this job. They didn’t work at everyday. The other day I was looking at the back of the house and notice there was gap in the fascia as I saw the wood showing. I guess this doesn’t matter as this is the back of the house. I took a picture of it.

    The siding is off a 1/2 lap on either side of that window too.

    I am not really sure what you mean. I guess this why I didn’t see it. I guess there could be more mistakes with this job.

    Geeze. It doesn’t matter if it’s the back side or front of house , they definitely should have done it right , great area to have water or otherwise getting in

    I agree. You never know there be mistakes at the front of the house too. I know this people probably don’t know any better. I am sure they are pretty happy the improvements they made to their house.

    They must have saved a lot of money using one less piece of siding…
    Saw a quote recently that seems appropriate. “Price is what you pay, value is what you get.”

    Yep so true. They were just hung that siding but did not do a good job.

    We started a basement renovation this week and had to demo out an old bathroom to relocate it . The walls of the bathroom were tiled and they had installed Durrock on the walls for the tile.

    On the one wall we found this 3″ stack like this. there were also 2 more screws lower in the stack.

    At leas with ABS, the screw plugged the hole and did not allow leaks. With PVC, there probably would have been cracks and leaks.

    WOW , true about the cracks and possibly leaking with PVC
    Did you notice anything , looks like it was higher up , which is probably better than being lower to the floor I would think ,

    WOW , reminds me when my wife and I were shopping for a table and chairs , we were standing beside a set in the showroom , and up comes a salesman , he said well this is our top of the line set it’s expensive , 🥺 I laughed and pulled my hand off the back of the chair and said yeah I can see that , showing the huge space between the top of the chair and the sides lol
    We never bought anything from the store LoL
