his bathroom shower and sink hardware. Somehow the plumber noticed the wall was wet and replaced the pipe but he had to cut a hole in the living room wall. The plumber stated he does no finish work. That when he used my service company. He purchased all his paint and plumbing parts from
The Home Depot.
