    Oh yes I agree, but that did not seem to phase him.

    Does this guy even have a contractors license ? My take on this is you probably got hooked up with some speed tweekers . Late hours , garbage work , venting to the atmosphere , no vacuum pump, no torch , and I'm sure there's more .

    LOL the one guy did smoke like 20 cigs in the time they were there...I am still picking up the butts from my lawn. They had a license # on their bill and their truck had the company name on it. I found them in the phonebook, full page $1500/month ad.

    Don't know your location but , here in Houston a full page add is closer to 9500 a month . Is that license # a valid one ? Tell us you didn't pay him in cash .

    Funny enough I did not pay him at all yet. I had some money in escrow and i am waiting for the lawyer to release it to pay him.

    I just spoke with the Lawyer and they are sending out the check today. At least none of the money came out of my pocket. I thought it was pretty nice of the guy to do the (shotty)work and not get a dime on the spot.

    Sounds like he's a sub contractor (not that there's anything wrong with that) So he probably got paid . What a can of worms this is . Good luck with this mess .

    My question is ...did you price hunt on who was the cheapest to come out and look at the system or did you actually try to find a company that was reputable. It may cost a bit more but you "should" get everything done by the book pretty much.

    We were burning up in the house, so I picked the ad from the phonebook that said 24/7 service, same price.
