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.
