From time to time we encounter installs from our competition. We feel in all fairness, we should give them a bit of "exposure" as well. Unfortunately, in many cases you will not know what type of a job you are getting, until after it is done. That's why we think you should take a look at the installers portfolio, before you sign on the dotted line...
Punching wholes in your ceiling tiles, running wires in the open, leaving junctions exposed is the sign of installers that care little about your business. They also used category 6 cable with a category 5e patch panel.
Painted wood standoffs?
Yes those are 1x2s that have been painted white and screwed to the wall, where everyone can see them. Not only does it look like a hack job, but it implies that your business is the same.
Ok, on my plate with meatballs on top, this may look good, but hidden in your ceiling tiles, this is a mess that someone will need to sort out at some time in the future and you will be paying for it.
Once they figured out where the different wires went, apparently they were done and had to get out of there.
Built as you go
It's frustrating to see where installers have just added on as they go. Oops, looks like we forgot one, just drill another hole and run another wire right there.
Anyway you can
Through the wall, across the carpet, under the door, nope we don't need that one anymore. Using the cable conduit is really over-rated when you can just run wires anywhere.
Excuse me miss, can I use some of you scotch tape, I need to hold this splice in place. Oh good, its invisible tape so no one will notice it. No need to worry, this stuff will last a long time.
Hey Pete, are you done with that coffee, I need to support this server. Yes I am leaving it here!
No, I have no idea why this computer is having issues. It is on the same network as the rest, so it must be a computer issue. Maybe its time for an upgrade.
Don't worry, we can add as many workstations as you want, in no time at all. We can just drop in another line!
Don't you just hate how things get tangled up with time? No wait, these didn't get tangled over time, they were installed in this tangled mess.
