The economy has been steadily improving and this includes the construction industry. Contractors are busy and homeowners have available cash for remodels or to fix their homes – but there’s one problem. With all of this potential business available a lot of new contractors have popped up in the remodeling and general contractor business. These “new guys” are offering low cost services and competing with established contractors.
Nothing is wrong with this and it’s a great opportunity for the new guys. However, customers are more demanding than ever and have a wealth of information at their fingertips using the internet. So how does a contractor compete, grow their business and keep up with the demands of the homeowner?
