Sure there’s crappy work fine by licensed plumbers. But most of the crappy work is done by handyman types and homeowners..I didn't suggest that DIY lessons sponsored by box stores was the only way to learn, did I? Homeowners need a lot of education, and there are many good educational resources. I've seen your posts recognizing that someone hired as a licensed plumber did work that you had the satisfaction of tearing out and re-doing for a hefty fee. So I think you agree with me that not all "skilled resources" are equal. Unfortunately, sometimes you don't know until you've experienced their work personally. More often, you talk with someone who is skilled, then they send their "guys" out, and you pay a big bill and have to move the wall for a slab foundation 6" or 13". Or you redo their work. Or you find another resource to fix their problems. Sometimes you wish you had done it yourself, but sometimes it can't wait.
Sure some homeowners and handymen are great......most are not.
Keeps me in business so I’m not really complaining., the more crappy stuff Home Depot sells it only guarantees my phone will keep ringing., And that’s the truth.
