Where to find pros? That's the question. I've never been able to find a licensed plumber or electrician in America that didn't take a short cut. I've tried the Yellow Pages. Local firms. Word of mouth. The works.
They never do anything dangerous like in your pics but often things that are still not strictly to code. For example, not using banded couplings on waste pipes above ground and using the ones for below ground instead. Annoying things like that. Laziness. Not being bothered to go to the van to get the right part.
And always things that require me to fix them afterwards.
That's why I DIY now. I got fed up with fixing other people's mistakes.
So where are these pros we hear so much about?
I'd love to find one.
