    They should have painted the rock also, therefore to leave no stone unturned.

    Whats wrong with those marks? How else is the contractor going to be able to follow where the utility goes, unless its one continuous paint strip from the ped to the house?

    I'm surprised there isn't painted offsets on the new driveway =) gotta be safe.

    Only thing wrong is no flags. How Is the homeowner going to know what is what?
    Oh and more pics. Min of 7 I think plus one of your computer screen. WTF

    That was a fine job. who needs flags anyways. here if its the wrong orange flag on an orange line then they dont care. if a contractor hit that line and its catv flagged as att your at fault even though you have a line marked and they hit it.

    I failed an audit for not flagging marks on a sidewalk, and the supervisor never did show me the trick to sticking flags in concrete.

    Can't tell if there is sarcasm or truthful about not knowing whats wrong with the pictures.


    If your being sarcastic, I think your hilarious.

    If you don't understand Steve's sentiment..... I'll refrain from any further comment.

    Looks like a typical day in the neighborhood in the greater Midwest. In the USIC areas, they would indeed have painted the rock as well.
