Please Vote for Best Defect Picture for May

Good selection for this Month.

Please take the time to Vote and Participate. :):smiley:

The garage door opener will fit NOW!!!


In a 130 MPH wind zone in Florida.

A well supported street light pole used as a beam…

Original brick column failed, added wooden makeshift log column, log column eaten by WDO, added another wood column, that too eaten by WDO. Then added an unsecured lolly column on a makeshift “footing”. All columns like this.

edit, one photo was not right side up…


Who needs gusset plates?

This water heater vent pipe had negative slope and was vented into the masonry chimey with a huge hole in the side. There were bedrooms on the other side of the wall… I shut the water heater off immediately!!

Inside chimney

Here is an old brick built tuck-under garage. Note that the floor is created with poured concrete over steel joist. The owner had a wood burning stove below which heated the lower level. All the moisture/condensation from the stove has caused Major Corrosion to the joist, literally eating them away. Would you park your car in this garage?


Gas boiler and water heater and NO CO2 detectors OH MY!
The TPR or TPV seems to be self replicating. Like an amoeba:roll:.

well it is “duct” tape… maybe they should have used register or diffuser tape…

More deck issues.They sure know how to build them here. NOT!!

Ok, these are all interesting and worth a laugh while the heads shaking in disbelief .
#4 has a vote for ingenuity while #5 gets the award for persistence…!??hmmmm. Gonna have to give it to the light pole re-use. Most environmentally freindly!!:slight_smile:

Some really good ones this month, tough choice

Disregard this Poll and vote on this one.

My mistake.

Pictures kept coming in and I thought I had not run the poll for May yet. :slight_smile:
