plumbing---never get your plumber mad

leaky pipes---there could be 100's of reasons but some you might not think of include that those leaks are there on purpose!
remember that plumber you insulted, did'nt pay fully, the one you thumbed your nose up at--well he could have revenge after all.
that pipe he replaced---it looks fine and works fine when you tried it but he intentionally left off the glue that would hold that new pipe together with the old pipe. It didn't fail for 2 months but when it did the damage was enormus.
new pipes needed, new drywall,new carpets,new paint etc.
you must know who you hire and treat them with respect if not you could havethose leaky pipes! will save you $1,000's potentially!

review from a reader 1-10

I have been buying, remodeling and selling homes for the better part of thirty years. A friend of mine told me to read "Remodeling Hell" by Charles Irion. I have thanked that friend on numerous occassions and I thank Irion for writing the book. I wish he would have written it a long time ago. I'd have had a lot fewer headaches that came from dealing with contractors and sub-contractors. Irion writes from his own remodeling experiences and couldn't have told this story and the truth any better. It was informative and yet entertaining. If you, or anyone you know has plans to remodel, whether it's one room or an entire house, has to read "Remodeling Hell" first. You'll be glad and then you'll thank me for telling you about it ...oh, and you'll thank Charles Irion for writing it too. GREAT READ! Sincerely, Raymond (avid Irion fan) Cardi
