Improper use of Building wrap, wrong nailing procedure,Corners reversed,nailed thru foam siding with no backer,used poorest quality Grip rite building wrap not rated for energy barrier,,,picture one has corner inside out and corner wasnt wrapped,picture 2 they didnt even fully make it to the corner and picture 3 is nailing heads tight on siding,supposed to ne 2/32 'standing proud' loose nailing to prevent warping On Grip rite: From website::Grip-Rite is a 'weather resistive barrier' while Tyvek is listed as a 'weather resistive barrier' and an 'air barrier'. Grip-Rite: http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/ICC-ES/ESR-2248.pdf Tyvek: http://www.icc-es.org/reports/pdf_files/ICC-ES/ESR-2375.pdf This is a significant performance difference. While both can be approved for use as weather resistive barriers under siding for building code purposes, only Tyvek can be approved for use as an air barrier for energy code compliance. What this means is that unlike Tyvek, Grip-Rite does little or nothing to prevent air infiltration and exfiltration in the structure. Up to 40% of a building's wasted energy is the result of air infiltration/exfiltration. One will therefore have to use expensive alternate methods to seal the thermal envelope of any building to prevent energy loss and to pass energy code inspection if Grip-Rite is used. Such methods include caulking every joint in every framed wall cavity where sheathing and studs meet. This can be a great waste of construction time and money. While I am no particular fan of Tyvek (or housewraps in general for that matter), if Tyvek and Grip-Rite are the only 2 options available, Tyvek would be my only choice every time. So be careful when you are being told that Grip-Rite and Tyvek are comparable products. They are not and do not perform the same way...with Tyvek having the vastly superior advantage" ............................................................................................................. Picture 4 is how sectioned rows ARE SUPPOSED to be done (note you don't nail into overlap) which Just exteriors seems to not know Picture 5...how nails are set correctly Picture 6...how its correctly done We could also say on the long ends of home and gables house wrap is to extend 1/2 inch beyond plywood substrate..it was not If you nail thru 5/8th foam..and loose nail shouldnt you be using ring shank nails so they dont pull out thru the years??Nope..they don't do that either. Might as well add that the over lap of building wrap is 30 cm...not 6 inches....which they dont follow All you have to do is look up how to correctly install it.His workers from Nicaragua were nice guys..but they are untrained and dont follow mfgrs requirements. The site of installation was at Round Hill,fishkill,on or about November 2, 2020..on Spruce Court... theres alot of good science on building trades...and you have to know why a thing is done and what the outcome will be in the future

yes...the building wrap used Grip rite is not Energy rated...Tyvec and Barricade are. At least one of his corners are inside out on Spruce court.

The nailing was not "standing proud" 2/32 spacing...so it cant flex like it should. The corners were not wrapped 30cm around,and the rows where two pieces meet arte supposed to be clipped back and you dont nail thru both rows...to allow for movement.Were i nailing thru foam Id use ring shank nals...smooth one wiggle out.

Bruce, since you’ve blocked us on Facebook we will continue through other outlets to tell our story. Just Exteriors after 3 months delay completed our siding project which was the largest they’ve ever done. There are problems now and they will not service us. We have paid them in full and we owe you nothing. We agreed on a price and that’s the amount we paid. You choose a wood supplier that provided an inferior finish to the wood. We paid EXTRA for a better finish and got an inconsistent stain job. You agreed and wrote to us we would not pay a penny more, even if the wood needed to be repainted. That’s what happened. We found a great painting company at a great price. You have a distributor and a wood mill who should be reimbursing you. Since we’ve spoken directly to the wood mill, they said they would make some of it up. So go discuss it with them. The real issue is the window problem. They were in place prior to the siding and did not leak. There are leaks now. The leaks are due to your poor workmanship. There’s nothing else it can be. Your contract has a workmanship warrant, one you talked up during the process. That warranty clearly applies. It’s not subject to your whims. Your own Facebook page has picture of our house showing it was uncovered for months. Your negligence on this job caused these leaks and your failure to properly seal them. That’s workmanship. We expect you to honor your warranty. It’s interesting this is the same issue you have with the Ryan’s and you are not honoring your warranty with them either. We repeat, your warranty applies and the windows need repair before the problem worsens.

While I would love to help you, I would first like to be paid for my services. As we have previously discussed, you failed to honor the contract with me and held back $12,000.00.

Your home was one of the biggest we've ever done. I truly loved transforming it in to a beautiful home, with the nicest cable rail system I have ever seen. But I did not do it because I needed the practice. I did it to turn a profit.

If you would like to make a reasonable offer I would listen to it.

Until that time, I can not perform any further service on your home. All the best

Just received a refulnd check- after 3 months!

Thank you to the company.

Original review Oct 20, 2012
After a 2 hour presentation on their product- we gave them a deposit by check on Sept. 22 nd. We had to cancel the contract within the 3 days allotted by law on Sept. 25th. I spoke to the company president and sent documentation. We have not heard back from the company- we have left numerous phone messages. They never contacted us the set up the job- and we can not get in touch with them to get our deposit back. We have alled everyday for weeks and finally got a bogus email back. This company claims to have been in business since 1978. They mislead you and are not available- DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
