You have to love consistency and you have to admire somebody who loves his job so much he wants permanence in what he does! And this consistent, permanent fellow likes gluing down toilets to make sure they NEVER move!
In fact, the buyer and I were admiring one of these when the wife of the duo, who actually found the house and wrote a contract without his husband seeing it, screamed about an oddity she had just found!
Certainly these are glued down so well that those silly, extraneous bolt things are absolutely not necessary!
Flanges - don't need them! Bolts - don't need them! Cute plastic covers - don't need them either!
In fact, I am sure this Flipper saved a lot of money on plumbers because I figure only two tubes of caulking were needed per toilet and THAT IS SURELY CHEAPER THAN A PLUMBER!
There are "new, hardwood floors throughout" which will be protected from water getting in or OUT! This job is one of permanence!
So, the next time the house is sold as "completely remodeled!" and "must see inside!" or, my favorite, "honey, stop the car!" maybe your radar antenna will go up as mine do!
My recommendation: when you take your clients through a flipped or newly-remodeled house remember, just remember, that your home inspector really wants to come too! And believe me, his antenna WILL be up! He'll have a happy smile on his face during the inspection too...
