Another local "expert"

I couldn't hold back comments, I am sure they will either get deleted or I'll get some snarky reply.

Only problem I can see is hes got the Durock upside down. If he mounts the tile upside down, itll cancel out.

I really don't understand how people mess this up. Did you water proof? Yep. Cool but then you poked a F**king hole in it.

Looks like PT lumber on that knee wall.

And stud spacing looks more than 16 oc on short wall.

Why wouldn't you want the wall made of pressure treated lumber? After all, it's going to get wet.

Those people will be praying to Jesus and taking the Lord's name in vain when the shower starts falling apart.

Let's hope Jesus turns the leaky water to wine so everyone has a little fun.

Please post his response Bimmer.

No comments. I didn't comment on the entire post, just the first picture which I guess made it less visible. What's sad is that I liked their page because it popped up on my feed and there were some positive reviews from folks I know by mutual friends. I was merely looking for drywall work but after seeing this crap I don't want them anywhere near my house

Well, they removed my comment. Shocking, I know.

Sorta on a related note, friends recently bought a house with some remodeling completed before they moved.

She is not happy, obviously. Might be sending her this way

Whadaya expect from painters?

Painting- the only trade you can do drunk. I've never met a sober painter.
