Hey Mike 

My name is Rocky Snider and I would like to know which Certificate I need first. I am a 28 year experience maintenance man that stated the Handyman-Hotline 3 years ago. I am licensed HVAC and a pretty good plumber but not really a regular type contractor. I only do repair work. One area very overlooked is duct work installations. They all suck. Really. While not every home in my area needs a new unit, they do need duct work repair and maintenance. Especially in moist humid crawl spaces. Seen my fair share of spider crickets. Just looking for a new service to offer.
