The Fallacy of Maintenance-Free - StrongTowns University

   Building "maintenance-free" is an illusion. When so-called maintenance-free items fail, they fail catastrophically so that you have to rip all of the mess off and cart it off to the landfill. The high standard should be materials that can be patched and repaired, as I explain in this sub-2-minute conversation with Chuck Marohn of StrongTowns University.
