How do "vendors" get away with boardups like this??

How do vendors get away with doing board jobs like this?? No carriage bolts and 2x4's, using particle board, and its not even covering the entire opening! Crazy...

I was at a property today where someones idea of boarding a window was to lean a board against the window form the inside and lean a 2x4 on it. guess he forgot the bolts ???

There's no way anyone paid them for that in this field. Like Stateline said, it must've been someone that doesn't have as strict guidelines.

The city of Tucson boards up windows like that.

GT thats the sort of thing that happens when you have companies like Homeland that want a bid list as long as your arm.
Only problem their demanded pricing is too low to do things right.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Very common to find this in my area. I like finding them because I get paid to correct them.

Had a hand rail about two months ago that was built out of the rotting 1x and 2x material that was buried under leaves behind the shed. I got $200 to tear it out and install one correctly made of 2x PT. Took less than 2 hours and used $50 in materials.

I routinely get paid to re-board windows. Usually it is the same rotting 2xs that need replacing. Another common one is threaded rod with a nut on the outside and inside instead of carriage bolts or it is like the ones in the pictures.

I found a handrail on a set of entry steps that was put up with brad nails, I grabbed it as I walked up and the entire thing came of in my hand.
