Negative. Have you seen the work that Augusta residential inspections passes? That's what I've been trying to say here in every thread.it would have been done right the first time.
Absolutely no difference in quality of work from a Handyman or a licensed Master Plumber.
Inspections: When I get caught up, I'm going to see if I can quickly put up a shower that passed inspection on new residential construction. You tell me if it was "done right" by ANY standard you've seen outside of Augusta (IPC, UPC, your opinion, your 6 year old son's opinion, take your pick).
If it costs more - it just costs more. No better work at the end of it all. Only difference is add about 1 week to completion while scheduling in a time for the inspector to come out.It may have cost you more,
Ah, correct on that one. I most certainly would be legal. That's really all I have to look forward to. I *always* want to be legal in business.but then you'd be legal, protected,
See above. Same aggravation, just extend the completion time by one week.and not have had to go through all this aggravation.
See above again. I would only be so lucky if the Plumbing inspector had some sort of personality conflict beef with a Master Plumber.Personally, I'd ask him if he'd like to discuss it with the local plumbing inspector.
All the Master Plumber would need to do is call the inspector before I do, let him know that I'm this PITA, and that he's trying to make things right (poor him). He'd be "diffusing the bomb" so to speak. Inspector tells him to correct work while Master Plumber makes excuses. No penalty. Business goes on as usual. I've seen this year, after year, after year, after year.
Standards and expectations here are lower than what I've been posting. Keep in mind, I'm not looking for something bad, nor am I skipping the good and only showing you the bad. There's nothing good to show you from Augusta Plumbers. Now, electrical inspections are another story. That one is kind of hit and miss. Plumbing - hopeless.
Know what my best bet is? Either learn how to do it myself, or post it here for some of you guys to correct.
