Install Of The Week

One of my regular customers called today. An older lady whose husband passed away last year. She told me her a/c install didn't look right. Thought I would share these pics with yall. 1 1/2 in. Out of level. The cut out of the flashing was where the electrical box was behind the a/c. No concrete pad. Gas line exposed and loose. Luckily she hasn't paid yet.

Re: Install Of The Week

Question is, why were those idiots hired in the first place?
Her stupidity or cheapness?
There's where your answer lies.

The job was subed out by the contractor she hired. Hopefully the original contractor corrects the problems. Never know. He apparently doesn't screen his subs too well.

Re: Install Of The Week

So, does this answer the question in G.D., "What trade has the most hacks?"

In this case, on a small, one day job like this, I would consider it to be 2.

The hack contractor that subbed out the work to the hack contractor that installed it.

In my opinion, that's a lot.
