re: Appliance Repair - Tell me if this is price gauging or not?? - DrEdgeLSU
[quote]It's a dying field, hence the high prices. Not many people walk through that door, so they make every penny when they can. You can argue that they should lower prices to increase demand, but I don't believe it would really help. People who don't bother getting it repaired won't start lining...

re: Appliance Repair - Tell me if this is price gauging or not?? - DrEdgeLSU
[quote]like I said earlier, plumbers typically charge about $100/HR labor so I just assumed appliance repair would be in the same ballpark. [/quote] Well this seems to be quite an assumption. What other professions do you assume charge similar rates? What is it about these two skill sets th...

[quote]I asked for a breakdown on how he got $197 of labor for 15-30 mins of work and he couldn't tell me. [/quote] I'd imagine that, since they are a business and the purpose of the business is to make money, they significantly mark up the hourly rate for small repairs. Think about it -- if a...

re: Will We See A Christian Pastor Forced To Marry A Same Sex Couple? - DrEdgeLSU
I asked these questions shortly after gay marriage was made legal by SCOTUS in a thread asking similar questions: Why would two homosexuals be interested in the blessing from a church that teaches that the union they seek is immoral and/or counter to its fundamental teachings? Why, other than...

re: The Reasons Catholics and Evangelicals are Flocking to Trump - DrEdgeLSU
It's worth pointing out that there is not a single major party platform that aligns perfectly with the social justice teachings of the Catholic Church. As far as respecting life (all life), one cannot ascribe to the teachings of the church and be both pro-life and pro-capital punishment. One cannot...

re: Home Renovation - Framing Inspection Question - DrEdgeLSU
As I said before, he is almost certain it won't be an issue. It's not like this is spelled out somewhere. Current code is pretty black and white, but it's not as clear what is enforced and what's not during a renovation. Logic tells me that there are likely dozens of other things in the house that a...

Thanks Stout. We are hoping this to be the case as it would create issues to have to rebuild this set of stairs just to comply with code despite not touching it to begin with. ...

re: Home Renovation - Framing Inspection Question - DrEdgeLSU
Our GC suggests it should be grandfathered based on past experience. There is a stairway to a landing whose only purpose is to be for attic entry (no bedrooms, bathrooms, entry or exit, etc) - it is not 36" wide. That's the concern and our inspection is tomorrow. ...
