It was profitable. It has to be. Too much liability. I wish Laz.

I feel like my attention to detail and patients has greatly increased over the last few years but I am defiantly not to your level Jerry . Awesome job! My hats off to you.

Really excellent work, Jerry.

I love the way you pop up on the forum from time to time with a dose of what you’ve been working on for the last many weeks or months. Thanks for sharing.

On a thread about hiring contractors, a customer had these kind words to say on NextDoor today...

Hi neighbors, after several discussions and bids from multiple contractors to renovate our home, we went with Paul and his crew because he was the only one to bring up how he waterproofs bathrooms so we would never have a leak! And even though I told him to demo the entire bathroom, he suggested I keep our current bathtub in our boys room bc there were no leaking issues with it (and it turned out wonderful!). We never felt like he was trying to overcharge us, instead he was charging us for quality work. This is the first time we did not go with the low(est) bid and we certainly noticed a big difference.

Looks like pretty tricky work, Paul. I'm so old fashion I think the big tiles go on the wall, and smaller ones go on the floor. Nice job.

I think the glass fad is fading, for residential remodels anyway.

Thanks John, might nice of you to say.

Yes Paul
I ripped out a mosaic glass tile shower a couple months ago. It was a nice job but the new owners despised glass mosaic. Went back in with a larger format white subway and changed the drain to a linear.

Jerry I did some pool work the other day, but it didn't require the attention to detail that you had on your pool job. Still need to get some fill dirt.

It is definitely not as hard on your body as tile work, and it goes faster too, but the tools are way more expensive. I was shocked when I got the call and they said they wanted to fill in their pool, they said they were selling the house and needed repaired and they didn't want to spend the money. Also the realtor told them that you lose 60% of your potential buyers when you have a pool.

Cool, Shawn. Never thought about giving Jerry some competition on here, but I did a pool similar to yours several years back.
