Some jackass got paid for this . . .

ahahahahaha. The contractor is currently in jail, awaiting trial on charges that he conspired with a bank to provide home equity loans that improved (allegedly) people's houses for outrageous fees that seemed like nothing when amortized over 15 years.

Brandon, it's fascinating how those peeps say the same things even though they're thousands of miles apart.

Last time I told a client a roof was toast, the realtor asked if it was leaking. I told her that was like asking if it's okay to carry a grenade in your pocket if it isn't exploding. The client laughed. The realtor crossed her arms and gave me the snarly eye.

I wish I could take credit for this but alais I can not (although I'm really tempeted to).

When confronted with "yes but is it leaking?" statement I respond by saying well no, however I've seen bald tires hold air but I wouldn't drive on them, would you? There's just no good place they can go with it from there.

A variation I've used is: Do you wait for a blowout before replacing your tires?

I haven't heard the 'but is it leaking?' quip in a long time. I'm afraid I'm overdue.

Looks like you have a nice picture for Facebook there, John!

I always respond to the "Is it leaking" question the same way, right in front of my client: "If you were buying this house, there's no way you'd accept this roof." They're completely dumbfounded. What can they say to that, without really showing their colors. Plus, they know it's absolutely true. Lol... Busted!... [:-graduat

It was probably the one she snatched out of a competitor's skull.

Chad, you've been coming up with some good one's lately!

I met a guy living in an old wood lap siding house of 2K SF or so. Said one of these vinyl siding guys gave him an estimate for siding and cornice at approx $100,000! And contractor would finance!

Since this is a public forum, I suppose it would be instructive for those who DON'T have a feel for my sense of humor to state that: THE ABOVE LINK WAS POSTED IN JEST.
