Yeah, That Should Fix It!

So I woke up last week to a painter right outside my living room window and he was painting the overhang right outside my window that hangs over the walkway by our apartments. Now this overhang has major cracks in it and when it rains the water runs right through the cracks and onto the walkway. On the other side of the building this happened last year and the overhang fell down because it got soaked with water. That's what's happening now on my side. 

So what does the manager do about the cracks? Why she sends a painter out to paint over them. The cracks are still there but now it's painted. I'm sure that fresh coat of paint will stop the water from falling through the gaping holes in the overhang...not!

The painter was such an idiot that he dripped paint all over the side walk and didn't bother trying to clean it up.

Paint drips can be seen along the entire length of the walkway.

Down past my apartment door the painter didn't even bother to paint the entire overhang..just threw some fresh paint over the cracks and left everything else the old color. Yeah that looks wonderful. 

Oh and the apartment right next door to me that has a roof leak and can't be rented...yeah the manager and maintenance man decided to take out the air conditioner and leave a huge hole right into the apartment that birds, insects, bee's, dust, water/rain, and people...let's not forget about how this isn't the best neighborhood and we have drug dealers and stupid teens looking for places just like this to hang out and do drugs or whatever they're doing. So keeping a huge hole open to the apartment for weeks probably isn't the best idea they've ever had.


  1. Good god, that's terrible. Do they have a Better Business Bureau for landlords or something along those lines? Sounds like this guy needs to be reported to someone.

    If he lets the apartment next door to you to keep collecting moisture there's a HUGE possibility mold could grow in the wall and effect you and your family's health!

  2. Because she just got approved to have the roof replaced and has not rented the apartments that have leaks and plans on putting in new carpets and fixing anything wrong with the apartments before they are rented...there's nothing I can do until everything is fixed and I can prove she didn't fix something that should have been fixed.

  3. Sucks!
    Just keep taking those pictures and documenting it all, I guess :(
    I hope she gets the ball rolling sooner rather than later.

  4. If it was my mom in your place, the building manager and the painter would be dead by now :D :D :D :D

    I am only half-joking.

    It is good that you got out to take the pictures.

  5. Damn that is pathetic, sucks indeed

  6. Damn Mary that sucks. I can't believe she's getting away with that and there's nothing you can do yet. Grrrs.

  7. Thanks guys. At least my apartment doesn't have anything wrong with it at the moment.
