I've been hearing a steady stream of these stories for a few years.
Not only Lakewood some stores in Brooklyn can't be trusted
If you need a cleaning just use the at home DIY options then giving it in to a professional who might have a opportunity to exchange for a fake.

Any recommendations for someone who can do over a small master bathroom?
I know someone who used Parkside Renovations and was very happy.

Just to clarify, this not a Jewish-owned store.

Would my best bet for a shed be to buy the one on sale at Costco and pay a handyman to assemble, or buy an Amish shed?

If the former, recommendation for handyman to build it?
If the latter, recommendation for where to buy?

Thanks!

If I'm going to need to replace it in a few years it will cost me more in the long run so I guess quality?

Costco has a very generous satisfaction guarantee. You may not have to pay to replace it. Do your research though.

Over the years I have been getting killed with plumbing service prices.

Most plumbers either charge by the service or service call and then hourly price which leaves me at their whim when they tell me the price once they diagnose
the issue.  You cant really say no at that point since they will ask for $125

I wish I can find a plumber that charges straight by the hour?  Even a $125 an hour usually comes out a lot better.

I've used him a few times after seeing recommendations upthread, always great and cheap. Really nice guy. Don't know if he does massive jobs, but he changed faucets and the like, was really reasonably priced.
