The old one was a little out-of-date; quick and responsive, but tired.
The new one is very 2021. I'm adding and deleting stuff, too.
This is a kitchen in a inherited-rental-soon-to-be-sold Bellingham house.
|Yep, needs replacing pretty soon.|
|New disposer and drains..|
|and new sink, faucet, and air gap!|
I received a slick oversized postcard from a local heating company through the mail today.
"Tankless water heater: $400.00 off plus a free disposer!"
Okay, let's look at that. A total of almost $1,000.00 discount, if they replace my really nice disposer and my tank-type warhorse of a water heater (as if...) with a high maintenance, energy and water-wasting tankless-type water heater.
How much are they overcharging to begin with? If I gave that much back on any job, I'd be paying you.
"$200.00 off water heater replacement"
Ya gotta wonder about the quality of the materials and the final price of the job. Water heaters are practically a break-even job for me, so discounting $200.00, I'd make more money not working.
The postcard goes on and on, but you get the drift.
Per the Lady of the House, I installed a plastic utility sink in a kitchen that's going through a extensive remodel. The remodel started when the dishwasher water line started dripping and destroyed the floor in a 20' x 15' section.
What's so great is that installing a temporary sink--a throw away, really--never occurred to me or in the many remodels I've seen. Most people will use the bathroom to wash dishes...for weeks.
Brilliant lady, she is!
