While the roofer was at the house last week, they were able to move enough of the panels on the ground so that the stucco guys could set scaffolding for the color coat on the back of the house. Last Friday, they came and ran that. All looked good, until we noticed there was a very visible variation in color at one point, like when they changed buckets of material. We let it sit a day in case it was a difference in drying times, but it was still there. Sent a picture to the owner, and yesterday morning, they showed back up. Had to reset all of the scaffolding but went to work redoing the entire wall with new material. It worked this time. They said it has happened on only one other house in all the years they have been doing it, but was a variation in the color when the dealer mixed it.
Speaking of the roofer, they got part of the roof on, but were missing a large portion of the required panels, transition pieces were made wrong and have to be redone, he didn't contact the fellow in Denver soon enough for him to come down and curve the one group of panels and we have to wait for that for two more weeks, and he may have missized the soffit. Not what I would consider to be a well organized fellow. With the holiday this week and having to return to Artesia to finish the previous job, after needing additional materials there,. He is supposed to show back up next week to continue. Hopefully with enough stuff to get all the peaked sections covered as I've scheduled the drywall guy to start on the 18th.
I've been working on a punch list of things that need to be finished beore the drywall starts, and with my son-in-law's help this weekend, framed out a couple of walls in the garage to close off the stairwell as is required. It will also create a space we can use as a home gym. This also needed to get finished before the drywall came.
I've got to contact the mechanical contractor as he needs to get started. He was supposed to be back by late last week to finalize everything, but didn't show. I'll give him a call this morning. Without that in, we can't get a structural inspection, can't get the garage ceiling sprayfoamed, can't put the soundproofing insulation in the second level ceiling, all of which needs to be one before drywall.
So I'm at a point where a lot of things are in queue and if they don't go on schedule, everything gets set back. I understand more and more what a GC does for his money.
