doors and windows

Repairs are continuing with the house.  Last year we got the fascia replaced.  It was rotting and the previous contractor we hired didn't replace everything, didn't do a good job where it was replaced, and simply didn't finish the job.  On the second go-around the new contractor replaced all the fascia including the work that was half done, and painted the trim around the house.  The new fascia is Hardi-plank and we shouldn't have to worry about it rotting.

We hired another contractor to look at the roof.  They did spot repairs on the roof and installed new gutters in the front and back of the house.  They will also be replacing our front and back doors and the windows.  Our replacement doors and windows arrived this past week and are sitting in the garage.  We also have new locks to go with the new doors.  All together, it's a LOT of dollars.

One of our windows has been broken ever since we bought the house.  It's a small hole in the glass.  For the most part, we seldom open the windows because it is very difficult.  The doors has always had a big gap in them.  We stuff the gap with a yardstick and towel.

We look forward to having these problems corrected.  We don't know yet when the workers can come.  But all the parts are here.
