I own a 2 story house and decided to hire a handman to re-caulk those high unreachable windows. Easy, right? WRONG. While I was at work this handyman or men (I'm not sure who was sent out or how many) decide to put a bead of clear silicone caulk over the old caulk around every first floor window, door, and both garage doors. They skipped the second floor windows and left me a bill in the front door. I called and complained and they were sent out the handmen a second time to re-caulk around first and second story windows properly. It looks like they tore out the new and old acryllic caulk and put down beads of clear silicone - and promptly crushed the beads to the point that the caulk went EVERYWHERE. Weep holes, other joints, the siding, and sometimes in the joints between the windows and vinyl siding. More often than not nothing was left in or on the joint. Pointless and a big ugly mess. And they skipped at least 2 second story windows again and put their ladder on the sump pump drain, partly crushing it. After leaving a LOUD, angry, 10 to 20 minute message on their voice mail, he called back and asked me what I wanted. Now I'm taking a day off from work to hover over these morons and teach them how to put on a proper bead of caulk since they can't seem to manage it. But there's more!!!!!!!! Last night a severe thunderstorm came through. Apparently the handymen decided to remove a non-removable awning and then put it back. Water came pouring out under the awning and from underneath the siding. God only knows what kind of water intrusion and damage I've got now and what kind of money it will cost me to get that awning and water damage fixed. All this to caulk some windows. Rant over.
