Integrity are decent for a lower-mid tier window. I've used double hung integrity line before on my rental properties with significant Marvin contractor pricing incentives (best option is fiberglass exterior wood interior).I would never use them in my own house though. There are much higher performing fenestration options (double and triple glazing) so look around. Most consumers seem to prefer Marvin Ultimates but I can't stand the vinyl jambs and have been disappointed with repeated qc issues. They also don't perform that well. Learn to read performance specs -- huge performance gaps even among wood aluminum and fiberglass window types so questions like aluminum vs. fiberglass aren't that helpful.

The restaurant is open but indeed appears to be in "distress" mode and is perhaps undergoing a change in management/ownership (unverified speculation). I can confirm they are without a chef de cuisine and are offering a very limited selection of tapas, all of which were genuinely awful.

Fingers crossed, we shall see....

Sloppy finish work can be fixed rather easily. It's just too bad the issues with most new construction on JC are not skin deep.

Hello. We do this work -- it is labor intensive but the result is a better then KCBA spec. The finish schedule is typically chemical stripper, sand, one coat of vinyl sealer, one toner coat, one stain/glazing coat, vinyl sealer, and 2 mils of conversion varnish or cab acrylic lacquer.

PM me if you'd like to know more.

Hehe...most plumbers aren't terribly concerned with structure. If you are relocating drain lines you may need to double up your floor joists. Actually you may need to regardless depending on size span etc. and floor material.

Hi. Use your designer for the layout and your contractor for the labor. With few exceptions, you would generally not rely on your gc for project design.

Doubt he'll respond. He's a flipper. The property was purchased by an LLC for $170k.

Re: Permit for water heater

Also, replacing a heater in the winter falls within the definition of "emergency work" under the construction code, so the contractor can certainly replace it without filing a permit. However, a permit must be filed after doing so.

Re: Permit for water heater

Yes, it's pretty typical but also unlawful. Btw, the first link has a brief summary of the required language that must appear in all home improvement contracts, and particularly the cancellation language, which all persons performing home improvements are subject to (this includes replacing heating appliances). The second link is to the statute itself, which spells out the different requirements. One of the subsections states that no contractor can start work until permits are pulled. This obligation has been held to be absolute--the contractor cannot require the owner to obtain permits and cannot start work until permits have been pulled. The remedies for failing to comply with the statute are not only civil but criminal, so yes contractor beware!

Re: Permit for water heater

It is a violation of state and local code to install a hot water heater or any other gas vented appliance without filing a building permit, which your handyman failed to do as it appears he is also unlicensed. This is a serious violation of the state contractor registration requirements. There are good and valid reasons for pulling permits, especially where it concerns gas vented appliances and especially if your work was indeed performed by an unlicensed person. As far as remedies, the contractor is strictly liable for violations under the consumer fraud and contractor regs, and is liable for treble damages for any additional costs or expenses you incur related to curing any violation of the above. Incidentally, the failure to include statutory language in the written contract would also trigger CFA liability.
