I got a million of 'em.
I need to replace the fascia board on the front of my house.
'I' meaning, I need to call someone who will do that. Attached
(and I use that word very loosely) to this board is the gutter.
Who should I call? Gutter installers won't know anything about
replacing that wood part, would they? I don't particularly need
new gutters, so if I call a carpenter, do you think they would take
off and replace the gutter?
Or do I need to call both a carpenter (? or who?) and a gutter
I really need someone like that. I had a very bad experience with the
last one I hired for a different job. I think that's what's holding me
back from getting this taken care of. Thanks for the advice.
Oh, he's great. Nothing negative about him; smart and a very hard
worker, etc. However, his company installs windows for Pella and
he's so busy it's not funny. Who knows, maybe he'll say he'll do it.
Don't want to get my hopes up.
*You from Jersey?"
" I'm from Jersey!"
"Oh yeah, what exit?"
Talk to locals at the vegetable/fruit stands...
You may shop, antique shop owners are often local and need someone to
"I don't have anything against work. I just figure, why deprive somebody who
really loves it."
You just have to dive in, and find someone, and use him (or her - heck, I had a
lady mason!) again if it works out well.
Start with recommendations from trusted friends, coworkers, and neighbors. If
none are forthcoming from there, ask a local lumber yard. That's how I found my
excellent GC. Didn't have anyone, needed new doors installed, went with the
installation guy my local lumber yard/hardware store had on their list. I
lucked out. But that's how it has to be sometimes.
A nice type of gutter is "seamless", which has not joints which will
eventually leak. I would call the gutter guys and ask them if they will
also do the fascia. From my experience as a roofing and siding mechanic in
the past, so will and some won't.
