No Response – No Business
Recently I wrote about a home roofing project in MI (07.08.11). While I still maintain contacts in my hometown….I’ve lost track of others. Contractors everywhere always seek out work or at least I thought.
Here are some responses:
+ Don’t buy that shingle brand….it’s no good.
+ The contractors web site no longer is active.
+ After a week… no proposal from another contractor….it’s too hot….the reply.
+ From a friend’s referral….this individual works on the side….though he works for one of the above contractors.
While a little surprised….because the economy is still recovering in Michigan….I would expect these contractors would be thrilled to have business come their way.
It is a challenge in completing this project long distance….even more so when the results have only been average.
Note: We are close to selecting our contractor!
