Give The Contractor A Break, He Is Busy Too!
There has been a flood of activity the last week in Sacramento. I don’t know if other contractor have experienced it or not but things are really overwhelming. The bulk of the calls that I have gotten are from the internet and I assume much of it has to do with blogging about construction, dry rot, and repair.
I realize that once a property owner has made a commitment to do something, they want to get things rolling right away. The caller wants me to come see the problem right away, they need an estimate, and when can we get started? All very important things that need to be done but if the contractor is already busy – this can be a bit of a task. Give him a break, he may be busy.
I do try to get to everyone when I can but there are only so many hours in the day. Some jobs I just have to turn down, some will take a while to get to, and others can be squeezed in the same day. There are many factors that go into doing repair work in Sacramento. If the contractor has a lot going on, maybe it is because he is in demand.
If your project is something that you have waited to get started, be patient with the time that is needed to get the work done. Your delay in getting started should not be passed on to the contractor, give him some time. If you cannot wait for this dry rot repair contractor, or feel that it can be done by another one – call someone else. I’m sure that the busy contractor will understand your need to get things done right away and will not be hurt by you call someone else for the job.
