The owner Rick was a referral from our friends. It started out with very sporadic work days with little over 5 hours a day of work being down when he was here. The deck extension was finished in about a month, and then it became clear that he was finding people that he had never worked with before to do the roofing. Looking back on it, I do not think he had ever down construction outside of poorly constructed decks. There were 3 different teams working on the roof with little direction from Rick. He would send them out to work on the project and they would figure out what to do on their own. Long story short.. we had to stop the work on the porch when the roof was sagging and not aligned with the existing roof. We sued Triangle Area Painting and won the settlement, but have yet to get any money from it. I've listed some of the specific items we sent him for reason of termination of contract. Even with all these things, he threatened to sue us for all the money for the uncompleted project. I wouldn't wish this company on anyone.. I hope this helps someone out there! 1). Despite our very specific instructions at the outset of work, workers failed to insure that the new porch roofline coincides with the existing house roof line. In fact, contrary to our request, the opposite was built: a new porch roof line that does not match the existing house roof line. 2). The roof lines of porch and house were connected at angles inconsistent with the house contour, contrary to what was specified and requested. 3). In areas where house siding and underlying insulation were removed to accommodate the joining of the new porch roof line to the existing house, the insulation was never replaced when new siding was added, which is inconsistent with standard ?workmanlike? building practices. 4).The knee wall was formed with a 3 ½ gap at the bottom. The particle board was then laid covering the gap but with no support for the long edge of the board. This is contrary to what was requested and to standard ?workmanlike? building practices. 5). The porch column posts were installed in such an awkward manner that neither can the soffit line up properly with the existing porch, nor can the bead board on the gable be installed properly. None of these three conditions were requested nor are any of the three consistent with common ?workmanlike? building practices. 6). Interior bead board was used in place of exterior bead board on the exposed porch ceiling, an exterior structure fully exposed to the elements. The use of such an inappropriate material was neither requested nor is even practical, much less consistent with common ?workmanlike? building practices. 7). The ceiling bead board was so poorly measured, cut and installed that large and inconsistent gaps exist between it and the interior walls, reflecting extraordinarily poor workmanship. 8). Rafters are spaced inconsistently, reflecting poor workmanship and the possibility of NC Building Code violation. 9) Contrary to both what was requested, the positions of porch ceiling lights were improperly measured and the lights, then, improperly installed. 10). After the fact, we have learned that Triangle Area Painting has employed a non-licensed electrician to install the electrical wiring and components. 11). We have recently learned that Triangle Area Painting has neither called for inspections nor obtained the various Building Permits required by North Carolina law for such projects.
