Remodeling Contractors Surviving The Recession
There are thousands of remodeling contractors all over
the United States that are only interested in doing a good job and
making their clients happy. There are a few who think a little
different, but for the most part, remodeling contractors are interested
in making their clients happy, so that they can refer them more
Whenever I go into someone's house for an estimate, I get the same reaction. I get treated like a second-class citizen who is going to take advantage of them and do a crappy job. Things have got better for me after I quit working for this type of person and found people to work for, that treated me like I was treating them.
If you're a remodeling contractor that's making a difference, I salute you, because you represent the future of remodeling. If you're a contractor who isn't interested in this philosophy, I truly wish that you would find another business to get into.
Often when remodeling contractors go through tough times like were dealing with right now in 2009, we get the opportunity to weed out some of the unscrupulous ones. A contractor told me once,” There's nothing like a good recession to get rid of these unscrupulous and dishonest contractors,” and it usually does.
The good remodeling contractors, who really care about serving their clients and providing them with top notch workmanship, will be in business for a long time. If you're one of these contractors who is going through some tough times right now, I'm here to offer you some hope and provide you with a little bit of inspiration.
Keep sailing your boat on the same course. Don't stray from your way of doing business, just because you see someone else making more money, but they're doing it in a dishonest way. All I have to say to you is stick with it and keep doing good work. Things usually get better and it might not be long, before you have more work than you know what to do with.
