One year inspection.
Normal for a one year.
You have to wonder.
"How long has this window been this way?" was my question to my client.
"Since we moved in."
"It was like this when you bought the house?!"
"Did you mention it to them on your walk through? Or did they say anything to you about fixing it?"
"No. We didn't think it was normal, but nobody said anything. So it's been like that."
When I told them that the window contractor probably roughly mistreated this window and caused the mullions to break they were surprised. And that the window was like this before they installed the drywall!
I am astonished sometimes at what people let go. And in this case especially that the builder's supervisor would just slough it off. It disgusts me really. They knew that the only way to fix this was to replace the window.
Well, it's all a bunch of mullock to me. I think I am going to go mull over a pot of mulligatawny soup and take a mulligan on this post.
My recommendation: On a final walk through, if something doesn't look right, it probably isn't! But don't let it go for a whole year...
