I agree with you Pedro, I don't always agree with anyones list, although John's seemed to be pretty good. Would you be willing to share with us who you would recommend, as you find John's list so bad? Thanks in advance.
¿Y realmente, puedes tu hablar español? One of your neighbors commented to me that when he talks to you he is forced to do so in his broken English, because he can't understand you when you try to speak Spanish. Wasn't he telling the truth?
sadly,you have never spoken to anyone on my street. after you mentioned this yesterday i showed your picture and nobody recognized you,sadly. my espanol generally gets me by but i haven't stopped trying to learn more. and you?
and brigitte,my roof is not metal. the peak that was repaired was red tile just like yours.the rest is asbestos and has needed no repair. i'm not suggesting that nobody use john's list. i merely stated that i don't need it. the only contractor i have used from ajijic was recommended to me by our maid at the time. her sister's husband, and his work,price and timelyness[sic] were just fine except for his carpenter. our first contractor lives in el chante and we have used his services for other projects from time to time but since he works for a lot of gringos now-his prices reflect that.
