    Seems to me that the wall of shame is just teeming with new posts day in and day out while the wall of pride is hurting for material. I want to change that. Time to get this thing going. I know that myself and others out there have a lot of good work to show. I'm gonna start posting tomorrow.

    Payson does one heck of a job filling up the wall of shame. I think he should have been an investigative reporter.

    I agree.. But we need to prove there is more good than bad. Isn't there? Or is the rest of the country(especially Phoenix area) that screwed up?

    I think that people find hack jobs more interesting than nice clean work.

    Posting pics of all the work that is well done just doesn’t make sense to me


    Kinda like putting your brand new car on display at a car show

    One thing that I think scares Pride posters is getting their work torn apart. I can see asking questions about why something was done the way it was, especially if it is a local way of doing it. But too many new installs are really attacked and I feel guys just don't want to see their work treated that way.

    AMEN !!!!!!!!!!!! I have jobs that I think look good, but I dont feel like hearing a buncha people tell me that the zip ties are a little too tight & killing the R value of the armaflex or I shouldnt tie the drain from the 90 plus furnace in with the condensate drain. Or a buncha silly bullchit like that.

    I've only posted a couple of times in the past. Got plenty of compliments, a few constructive critisizms and a few pointless arguements too.

    I need to take more pictures of my work, but the problem is I'm hardly ever the one who finishes the job. So it's kinda hard to post pictures of a half finished job. But sometime soon I'll throw some more pictures up in here. I snapped a couple pictures of a couple houses we just finished and going to take a few pictures of the insides of my van to share with y'all.

    I'll be postin some stuff soon, I've only done some standard replacements lately, and not too keen on hearing "why no case coil, why no high efficiency air cleaner, why no this why no that"... ...it gets kinda old.

    I've proposed to do some really nice high end stuff but people are so damn cheap lately it's not even funny anymore.

    One reason that I post some work in here is to get constructive criticism. There are many professionals on this site and I respect those who are. I'm always learning to improve my job, and there is nowhere better than here.
    Get back to work.™
