There are shortcuts to every job
When it comes to home repairs, there are many shortcuts that can be taken by the home owner or contractor. Most of the shortcuts can save a few dollars and a little bit of time. We have to ask ourselves, “Is the shortcut worth it?”

What do you think of the results? Even with a good coat of paint the repairs would stick out as a bad repair choice.
Sometimes the shortcut just isn’t worth it!
