Just like we dont wan't plumbers doing electrical work, electricians shouldn't be doing patch work. I have seen some gawd awful service upgrade patches done by electricians.

We leave the patching to the professionals, which lets us focus on what we are good at.

I used to patch (never paint). Then I realized that a 3rd grader with a wad of clay could do a better job. Now I tell the HO that I can replace the piece (just like attic rat describes) but leave the patching for them.

Well I'm relieved to hear I'm not the only one who's not a Michelangelo of Drywall.

I patch, but I don't beautify. I like the idea of getting it squared away while speccing the job.

I'm running low on furring strips. I need to go visit the carpenter's scrap pile.
