Maybe this is a spinoff of the "ScrewUps" thread, but I'm posting this specifically to vent about the lack of good contractors in my area. We had the gutters on our toolshed replaced last summer and they are already leaking. Left a message for the contractor we hired last Friday and haven't heard back yet. Been waiting for almost a year now for our leaky faucets to get fixed from the heating/plumbing company we've used for years. They send monthly bills for late payment interest for the work they did a year ago that wasn't done right but they won't show up to fix their mistakes. Been waiting for almost a month now to get the flashing around our chimney repaired. The contractor was supposed to come out this week but tomorrow is already Friday and he hasn't showed up yet. I don't expect him to either. Called C&L Ward and they can't get someone to come out until December?! Called another contractor at least two months ago that doesn't cement work to repair an area in our toolshed. Said he would come out and check it out first, still waiting for that to happen. What's the deal? Are these guys so backed up from the Covid shutdown, are there just not enough of them around, or do the ones out there just don't want to work hard anymore? Maybe we're an isolated case but this is intolerable.
