A couple of years ago we decided that we wanted to sell our house. We actually listed our house on the market for six months, but nothing ever happened. It was at that time that our vinyl siding looked
Short story, we got the run around. The local siding dealers were not very helpful (I'm being very kind here...). The "limited" lifetime warranty wasn't worth the paper it was printed on. And, get this, warranty services denied our claims. We even had a company claims guy come out and look at our house and tell us specific issues that we had with our siding so we could get a claim. Denied. Literally, a year's worth of work all for nothing. Needless to say, we were not happy. So after trying for a year to get the issue resolved on our own locally, we decided to go talk to a regional manager and plead our case with him. And the most amazing thing happened...... We called and told them our issue. The very next day we were approved! Yeehaw! The local guys were still jerking us around, but we got it approved. We order our product and it arrived at the house.
All good. So we have the guys yank off the old siding. And while we were at it, we had some brick work that was installed that we wanted redone. So we asked one of the neighbors to help out. Well, come to find out we had a bit of a problem with the house. Check out this photo:

The brick work finished at 1:30 AM on Friday, November 5th. The vinyl siding guys have done three of the four walls of my home. Now that my brick is done, I hope they come back on Monday to do the front of my house. But then again, the weather is supposed to be crappy on Monday, so that may not happen for a while.
So there you have it. Our house had a face lift. Now, where did I leave my drill? Has anyone seen it?
