This could be titled “anatomy of poor and miscommunication.” I’m posting it for documentation purposes–we are still working on improving the information flow between LRP and homeowners. See also the note in Harold’s 3/19 construction meeting notes.
Dear Bob and Jacklyn,
I hesitate to question the way the good people who are fixing up our places do their job, but I was surprised to observe today that the crew working on the 920s knocked off at 10:30 this morning. I thought they were going on a break, but the guy who was renewing the stucco around our carport did not return, and no further work was done on our unit after 10:30. That leaves the wall open to the elements with rain on the way tomorrow.
At least there is some paper in place that may provide something of a water barrier. The same cannot be said for the large vertical hole that was opened up on our back patio wall next to the dining room. While we were away late last week, they did some pressure testing on the drain pipe there. Water came gushing out of the dining room wall through a wall plug, drenching the floor there, and also the same upstairs in the #2 bedroom.
I had expected that you or someone would come by today to tell us how you were going to fix that drain pipe problem, but no one came by, and worse, nothing was done. Now that vertical section around the drain pipe is open to the elements, with rain coming tomorrow. The water stains on our dining room ceiling have grown since Friday.
What is your plan for fixing this? How are you going to make sure that there is no water damage from the rain?
Thanks for your attention to all these issues–our particular holes in the wall, the leaky drain pipe, and the fact that the workers left quite early while we are presumably paying them to work a full day.
