Efficiency Rules!

Job efficiency wins out every time! I'm convinced that's how we won The Crawford Residence re-model. Apparently two other bidders were cheaper, but Mindy and Carlos recognized through all of the smoke that we knew what needed to be done; had the people to do it; and the ability to get in and out of their lives quickly so that they can get on about the business of living!

And that's what it's all about. We will bring highly skilled, incredibly qualified and gifted craftsmen to every job for the sole purpose of helping our clients do exactly what they want done - efficiently!!

Through the years my business partner Phillip McCloud and I have marveled at contractors who take the cheapest bid regardless of who that subcontractor is! Why would you want to "train" the lowest bidding subcontractor on your client's job? More importantly, why would you want to put someone you don't know in the same house with your client both during the project, and servicing after the sale? Can anyone really afford that sort of liability?

Both Phillip and I have been stopped through the years by clients who didn't hire us. The story is always the same - 'Boy we wished we'd a hired you guys, our project was a DISASTER!!'

We're not gloating. And the "near misses" are always painful to hear. But the more gray I get in my head, the more our clientele seems willing to listen to our story about efficiency! Our guys aren't the cheapest - until you have to rip it out and re-do it!
