Most GCs do what has to be done to get their structured payments and don't give a hoot about anything after the fact until they are close to the next payment. Their is little logic involved with 'cash flow' contractors.

They hung and taped a 15,000sqft building in three hours? Even with a crew of fifty that's impressive.

You must have misread something, he dried balls at the men's steam bath back in Chicago maybe.

All our circuitry is numbered from ocpd on out , then made color/color for continuity, meggering before/after

We then duct tape all our boxes, panels are card boarded & taped also

Then we take spray paint to the floors , red below receptacle outlets, blue below switch outlets, yellow below lighting outlets

If you really want to ice that cake, place one of these in the panel>

Such craft excellence is the norm in the Third World, though this back-less switch rather looks like it was installed by the GC's own boyz, as he saved a bundle compared to what that greedy EC demanded for this extra work.

When the ultra-Jumbo trim plate arrives -- no-one will be the wiser.

Cha-ching !

The one guarantee in contracting of any kind is the guy with the really low price is tempting to the guy with the checkbook, "so what if his work isn't perfect".
