?? The OP is printing up bumper stickers and creating numerous web
sites to attempt to retaliate against the builder. How is that not
abuse? How will that correct the situation or make the OP whole?
Right. It won't. Don't kid yourself, he's in a pissing match -
You must understand RicodJour. He fancies himself as netnanny. Group cop.
The corrector of every post. The fountain of information, truth, and
possessor of the only true solution. And when he can't best you in that
way, he gets personal and emotional.
Killfile him. He has nothing to say that you want to hear. Life will be
easier, and you will have only about half the messages to download every
day. He has no life, as all he does is sit here and spew.
Gee, you're sensitive. Are you still upset from that _one_ thread
where we ever exchanged opinions?
Was this what I wrote that bothered you?
"A little while ago you were shouting NEVER PAY FOR WORK UP FRONT, now
you're telling us that you customarily did business that way? Then
you're telling us that you left the deposit thing behind when you went
into commercial work. WTF? Sure, there's no difference between
commercial and residential work, is there? Sheesh."
I apologize for disagreeing with you. Well, at least I was
disagreeing with what you said at first, then you flip flopped so I

track of which side of the fence you were on.
BTW, you said you were kill filing me. Try again - it doesn't seem to
CALL YOUR STATE'S CONSUMER PROTECTION DEPARTMENT...your builder should
be licensed with them, and there's a reason for that. Consumer
Protection can give you information on your rights and any
compensation that might be possible. For example, in my state Cosumer
Protection deposits money from contractor licensing (roofing,
electrical, plumbing, etc.) into a pool of sorts, and consumers who
have been wronged by a contractor that goes out of business can still
sue and reclaim some money. That's just one example of a services;
there may be other things they can do for you, including threatening
this guy's license if he doesn't live up to the spirit of his
I would be surprised if any of the poor craftsmanship would be against any
codes which means you probably can't win in court. they obviously suck at
drywall & staining which are both pretty much arts. I have been in
construction for over 20 years & I still suck at drywall, if its a job
bigger than a small hole to patch I know enough to get someone else to do
it! everything in the pictures is fixable with a little bit of elbow
grease. only advice i could offer is to never pay in full until you are
satisfied with the results.
good luck with your suits, although I feel you could have everything
repaired cheaper than your lawyers fees will be.
