Below is a video of a window inspection I did this afternoon. The customer, who lives out of state, asked me to go over and inspect the work of a window company he hired. This is a long time customer that didn't remember that I did this kind of work. Shame on me for not keeping in front of my customers. I promise to do that from now on with this blog.
While I do not like to BASH other contractors work, and I will not name the name of the company, this final product is absolutely unacceptable by any standard of quality. The project is just simply incomplete and the regular homeowner would never know.

When you hire a contractor there is an element of trust that goes with it. Some disputes arise from unclearly communicated expectations by both parties. The example in this video is just plain and simple poor work and poor use of material. I'm done now. I am sure you all get the point. I am pretty sure my customer will be calling me to fix this mess or help him find someone that I trust to do it right if I can't get to it.
