<< How do you know it's 3-45 minutes work?>>
I asked him and he told me. It's 12 tiles that need to be removed and replaced.
He said it's 30-45 minutes, Plumber.
<< Does this installer live next door to you where he can just walk next to
your house or is he going to have to drive to a supplier, get the tiles,
drive to your house and spend more like 2-3 hours on the project... >>
The installer is in our development almost every other day. The development
consists of about 600 condominiums and he is doing a lot of work here. Most
condos here have the same tile. He gets this tile all the time and he lives 10
minutes away, in the same city.
<< Ask him where to find the tiles. I hope he just laughs at your cheap
ass again. >>
The installer knows that the median price for a condo here is $400K, so he
figures he can charge the "rich" $250 for a short service call. I may very well
be cheap, but a short call (up to an hour) by a tradesman (plumber,
electrician, HVAC, etc) around here is $140-150. That's what I offered, plus
$120 for the tiles.
