TravelingChris Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 Whatever the economic problems are in many parts of the country, all I can figure is that service workers aren't lacking for jobs. We have lived here for a bit over a year. I haven't been able to find even one electrician to do a quote when we are looking at getting over 3K work done. I called tree people and I only had one call back and he did the job. I called two plumbers and one never called back. Now I will see if the gas repair guy will call back. OH and I still have to find an electrician who actually wants to work. What happened with the electricians was we had three come out. We specifically asked for an estimate by the job so we could make sure we could afford it- some we are happy to do later. It is a fairly large job- add another whole panel, rewire some of the things to the new panel, add 240 outlets in the garage, add some more regular outlets too, add a lightening suppressor, add a hard wired fire detector in the garage that would be suitable in an environment with dust. One guy sent us a sloppy estimate with a total price but not really saying what he would do. THe other two didn't bother to send anything. I just hate having to do this.
