TOPIC: A Real Silicone Boob Job

A Real Silicone Boob Job 11 years 10 months ago #27368

No, it's not what you are thinking.  Sorry, but these boobs were something more like stooges, maybe even the Three Stooges!

This is one of many repairs effected by the Bestway Construction Company.  Yes, that is their name.  I am not kidding and I am NOT making this up!

During our inspection a couple of weeks ago a very loose and dry hose bib was in this location.  It pulled out of the wall about 1/2".  Since it was hidden behind drywall in the garage we could not see the inside.

The buyers wanted it repaired, by a "licensed plumber, with receipt provided."  Instead, the agent employed a company she said "does everything perfectly, the best way possible," and that's why she uses them.

The Bestway Construction Company discovered that the bib was connected to nothing, so they removed it completely.  That "repair" is indoor, bathroom silicone.  I don't know how much they used, but it is classic!  Water tight, long lasting, hardly noticeable!  That section of siding is only about 18" long, easily replaced.

The buyers called me because they got back a letter from the same "repair" company for everything on their addendum list.  No licenses, no receipts, no guarantees, just a letter saying what was repaired.  They called me back and we did a re-inspection.  Many of these repairs will appear in future posts!  Sadly...

My recommendation:   You might not get what you are expecting despite being very specific on your repair addendum.  And construction companies may not be populated with professionals!  Sometimes what is advertised as the best way turns out to be a real boob job, so to speak.

Pretty sad to think people get paid to do that kind of work Jay.  :)

With the color match capabilities out there, you'd figure they'd have at least done that!!!!  ;D  ;D  ;D
Or...possibly...just possibly...found a matching piece of SIDING?!?!?!  :)

You gotta wonder.  That piece, as I said, was only about 18".  Even if you put something there that was only close to the color, it was low to the ground and would not have stuck out obnoxiously...

This is the same house as that furnace "repair," so at least they are consistent.
