Quality Framing?

December 6th, 2011

Recently, we drove around several subdivisions where multiple builders had model homes.  All these builders like to tell buyers they are the highest quality builder in the Milwaukee market.

But, are they really?

Let’s take a look at one minor facet that we found on all the models we inspected in one development.   The pictures below show a gable at the front of the home.  The gable is made up of two fascia boards.  As you can see in these pictures, the carpenter for these homes simply took two boards and “butt” jointed them together.  This is the easiest and fastest way to install the fascia board at any gable.  Is this quality?

Butt Joint – Quality Builder?

We don’t think so.

On all Trustway Homes, our carpenters are craftsmen.  They take pride in their work.  Thus, instead of just slapping two boards on the front of the home, our carpenters take the time and create a mitered joint.  See the difference?

So, we ask you, what would you rather have on your home?  A butt joint or a quality mitered joint?  Doesn’t that make you wonder if they are cutting corners at the front of the home, what are they doing in the other areas that are not so visible?
