Tankless and new copper pipes - how is the quality of work?

This is the 2nd day of our new tankless water heater installation and repiping the whole house with copper. I just want to share a few pictures to see what you think about the quality of work?

Looks ok. How much?? I would say $5000 plus and you are trying to justify the cost because it has not meet your expectations??? California is odd compared to east coast.

You are right about the cost, Mike. I was expecting better water pressure from the new pipes, however, it is even lower than before, so I am a little confused.

Have you adjusted the PRV for the correct inlet pressure? The only change I can see readily, and you know I am just a naildriver, is remove those galvanized plumbing straps off the copper and replace with copper straps or plastic. The galvanized ones, being a dissimilar metal, can cause problems down the road. Either do that, or do what I did, and loosen them and slip a piece of rubber under them so they wouldn't touch.
And, being a naildriver, when are you going to address the water damaged floors and joisting. We're ready!!
