House falling apart|
So I looked outside this morning, and it is indeed a piece of siding that is all bent and flopping around. Does anyone have suggestions for someone to call about this? A roofer? A general contractor? A siding person (I suppose there must be siding people)?
If it's just a piece of vinyl siding, it can be snapped back into place by anybody with a ladder and a clue. When this happened to my place, I called "Handy Hammer" in Arlington. They won't do anything higher than the second floor, though.

Unfortunately, it's bent too, not just loose. Hmm, and it's really the equivalent of the third floor. *sigh* Of course, if it were up to me, I'd just leave it. But I'm sure at some point some neighbor would complain. Thanks for the recommendation.
You rent, right? It's The Landlord's Problem. Call him and have him deal with it. That's what you're paying for. Or if you're in a condo, the condo association will need to get involved, since it's the building exterior.
(Plus, speaking as an exploiter of the proletariat myself: we landlords like to know if there's a problem with the house, so we can fix it before it gets worse!)

Actually, I own it. And while it's technically a condo, it's really just a duplex with no common spaces. There are no condo fees or anything like that. Flargle. I suppose I'll have to call someone on Monday.
