Plumber forced to finish off carpenter’s shoddy work
"General carpentry should be on the list of compulsory trades at the Ontario College of Trades," says Jason McCurdy
I’m a licenced plumber and a member of the Ontario College of Trades. While I don’t totally agree with the College, I feel general carpentry should be on the list of compulsory trades. These contractors have to deal with the public on a daily basis and most are working on our biggest investment we will make in a lifetime, our homes. After seeing first hand the unreliable and poor workmanship our unlicensed contractor provided us, I think there needs to be some kind of control system put in place. After waiting three years, I finally have a lawyer to deal with this contractor as I try and finish the exterior of my house which should never have had to happen.
