CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -   Brian Jones would seem to be an unlikely victim of a water damaged home.  

He's a homebuilder in the Charlotte area and after years of building other people's dreams he decided to build his own. 

About a year after moving into his York County home he noticed water damage in his dining room.  

"I do this for a living for other folks and all of the sudden you get an issue like this that you don't expect," said Jones.  

Jones is now stuck with a $3,000 dollar repair bill.   

Certified Home Inspector Paul King says the problem was with the installation of a popular home exterior product. 

"I can honestly say that 95% of the time it's not installed properly," said King.
