This is the quote from a happy homeowner after I scoped out a new service for them. " Oh and on a seperate estimate I need...." I don't know about you guys but I am burried throug the end of the year. There is NO chance of me going low on anything. I hope you guys are doing as well.

I "suffer" the same malady as you. I've been in business going on 24 years, and I've never seen anything like the last 4.

I've been consistently 4 months behind.
