Haha. McKeesport. Typical. This is why I can't work anywhere close to home. Usually travel 30-60 min to the areas where people will pay for a quality job. Not saying there's none around here just not enough to sustain business

Haha I know. I always humor myself looking on craigslist but it just ends up pissing me off. And it's always in stereotypical cheap ass land lord areas

"Would like to pay $400 for the work"



Ok, that should get you....ABOUT...hmmm, 2 feet from your door and almost as wide. And how were we planning to get down from the deck? I have a nice repelling line.

Someone will probably show up, get half down for materials and disappear for good.
