    Not only are the spindles not securely fixed, the second one in from the knewel post is upside down isn't it? :biggrin:
    I was last told by a chippie mate that the spacing of spindles is now tennis ball width. How right that is IDK :dunno:

    Gotta be one of the bodger handymen as opposed to the professional handymen :winky:
    I'm glad we pay good money to surveyors to check these things when we move home... more so the electrical issues there :smash:

    This definitely belongs in the official poor workmanship thread....in fact it could beat all the rest.

    This was a building local to me that was painted about 12 months ago:eek:mgblink:

    I dont know if you can zoom in, but if you can look at the left hand pillar, it has creased so bad i reckon you could unwrap the whole pillar in one go:lol:

    Now i passed this building regularly when it was being done. At the time i did think there was something odd, but didn't take too much notice.
    Once the scaffold came down it looked nice & tidy for the first few weeks. Within a month it had started failing.
    Eventually realized what the bloke had done!!.........................OMG, the knobs only gone and 'plastered' the exterior with 'SKIM'!!:hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:

    That makes perfect sense to me as they can take the paint job with them when they sell up, What's the problem:dunno:

    :lol: They will have to hurry up then. Another 12 months and there won't be any paint left on the walls.

    To be honest after 12 months I'd be looking to sue rather than get them back! And I hope to god they do.
