Fewer complaints over workmen

One of the silver linings of the economic downturn for homeowners may be that carpenters and other workmen are doing a better job. Since 2009, the number of complaints over shoddy work has fallen by 80 percent, according to Byggeriets Evaluerings Center (BEC), a research institute for the construction industry. The most likely explanation, according to Peter Hesforf, the head of BEC, is that as homeowners began to hire fewer workmen, those that did land jobs needed were more focused on the quality of their work. – Avisen.dk
