I am a layman and I cannot wait for the contractor to do it.
Would I be able to do it as a D-I-Y job?
I have asked the contractors to finish the basement.
AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE BASEMENT
Now there are 2 holes on the side of the exterior wall of the house.
One is a hole on the side of the house (for a certain unknown purpose)
How do I cover up this hole? What could I buy to cover up the hole? It is an eyesore
There is another hole on the side of the house but the white cover is not straight.
How do I straighten up the white cover for this hole?
The contractor said that it would involve a lot of work to do it as it is an integral part of something that is affixed to the interior of the basement. So it is not a simple task of merely pulling off the white plastic cover and reaffix it on the wall on the side of the house.
Shoddy work, at best.
If the white cover is glued to the pipe behind it and the interior around the pipe is finished, you are best to live with it.
If its not glued, you can replace it but cleaning up the caulking will be difficult. You could take some of the caulking to a pro paint shop and see if the can identify it and sell you a cleaner and wire brush.
The hole that is not covered will be difficult for a layman to repair with brick, assuming you had any that match. Suggest you install another white cover, after you fill in the hole with expanding foam insulation.
