The down turn in the economy has taken its toll on the skilled trades, and with construction a lending in an up turn, it is harder to find contractors and trades men to handle small projects. You may look at temporary service providers who can handle the removal of your bath tub. But usually the water needs to be disconnected prior to them breaking out the old tub. Another alternative is to look for a local BNI chapter who has a contractor as a member and they may be able to help you out. Stay focused and do not get discouraged.
