Shodd

Shoddy refers to poor materials or quality. Maybe you passed on buying a house because it leaned in an odd way and various and sundry parts were falling off. Sounds like both the materials and workmanship were shoddy. (Source: www.vocabulary.com)

Unknown, but possibly from shoad (“loose stone and rubble; fragments”), equivalent to shoad +‎ -y; or possibly from the Arabic word for reuse. Shoad was of inferior quality for building. (Source: en.wiktionary.org)
